Warhammer 40k: Mechanicus was revealed at GDC, showing off some gameplay for the upcoming tactical turn-based game. The publisher, in conjunction with Bulwark Studios also revealed the foes the Adeptus Mechanicus will do battle with: The skeletal Necron, as their thirst for technology and knowledge intensifies on the planet Silva Tenebris. In the first gameplay to be shown since its announcement last month, members of the press were shown how players will select their team of Tech-Priests on the Ark Mechanicus battleship ‘Caestus Metalican’ and upgrade them with a wide array of augments before embarking on their chosen mission.
Players will come up against a variety of Necron forces in Mechanicus. Remorseless Necron Warriors, ghoulish Flayed Ones and the gauss cannon wielding Immortals will be just a few of those on display at GDC who stand in the way of an Adeptus Mechanicus victory. Fight back using high-tech Ad-Mech weaponry such as the Valkite Blaster and Eradication Ray or use Servo Skulls, Servitors or Skitarii to join you in battle and gain the tactical edge.
