Slitherine Announces Gladius - Relics of War


#1

A 4X set in the Warhammer 40K universe

Warhammer meets Endless Legend? Yes, please.

Coming “soon” with a live stream scheduled for Monday.


Civilization VI
#2

Not a sequel to this?


#3

Bad-ass! Thats what I’m looking for - count me in!


#4

My initial reaction (so subject to change etc) is that this looks terrible.

Then again I didn’t much care for Endless Legend, and this looks like a 40k skin of EL.


#5

Oh, Proxy Studios is working on it. Bit ambitious for them?


#6

Other than hexagonal tiles comprising cities, what makes it look like Endless Legend in particular?


#7

Well that’s all I’ve seen so far! And the landscape etc.


#8

sigh

Yeah. Had my hopes up for a second.


#9

Oh God, will there ever be enough Warhammer 40K games?

I’m just waiting for the dating simulator. In the grim dark future, there is only… a high school full of hunky Necrons trying to get it on with doe-eyed Tyranids?


#10

I couldn’t resist…


#11

gladius box

Best game LucasArts ever made COME AT ME


#12

40k, meh. Trash franchise can have this kind of uninspired game.


#13

Thats the proper thanksgiving spirit everyone- come shit on gamethreads about brands you don’t care about!


#14

Better than TIE Fighter? C’mon now.


#15

Fewer escort missions, anyway.


#16

Thank you. That’s the best laugh I’ve had in literally a week. Much appreciated.


#17

I don’t mind the theme, but come on, Imperial Guard? Space Marines are already kind of “vanilla” when it comes to sci-fi, and IG are even more flavorless than them. Even the Chaos Space Marines have gotten more interesting stuff the last couple years.

Though yeah, a 40k 4x game sounds pretty cool.


#18

Proxy Studios- When the Great Designers are Busy!


#19

You know, Pandora is a pretty damned good game. Sir.


#20

Well, they left the game in a bit of a mess. Some guy took over and tweaked the AI, but really he has no idea about what makes a fun game:
