Fans of Warhammer 40,000 are getting another game from that universe today. In just several hours Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach will be unlocked on Steam. This is a turn-based strategy developed by Straylight Entertainment and published by Slitherine, veterans of the genre. Set in “a dark era of carnage and endless war”, Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach will let you defend the last bastion of the Imperium of Man in the eponymous star system from an Ork invasion.

You will be able to achieve this task while playing as the leader of the Space Wolves company through two story-driven campaigns. The units under your command will progress with each victory, which is another reason (other than emotional, of course) to keep them alive. Apart from the two campaigns featuring over 20 missions each, the game offers a skirmish mode with map generator and multiplayer based on PBEM++. Despite its turn-based mechanics, Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach is said to be fast-paced – and it surely is, as compared to other games published by Slitherine. Watch the latest trailer:
