Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is one of those rare games that manages to capture the essence of the tabletop miniature game from Games Workshop and delivers it to the player in a proper manner. Yes, it is another turn-based tactics game based on the Warhammer 40,000 universe, but it has its own flavor. One of the main reasons for that is that the faction we get to play is not one of the usual ones. You won´t see Space Marines, Eldar, Orks or Chaos, but instead, the game focuses on the Adeptus Mechanicus cult, the tech-priests from Mars.

The game offers you a mix of turn-based combat and exploration where you will discover the secrets of one of the most secretive and deadly factions of the 40th Millennium, the Necrons. While you explore a Necron tomb, you awaken the monstrosities that sleep inside, and the story will guide you through a perilous journey as you struggle to choose between the almost heretical fascination that the Necron technology awakens on you and your duty as a servant of the Machine God.

This adventure is now becoming even more epic with the addition of a new faction to the game in the form of heretic priests. The Heretek expansion is coming this month, and it will open a completely new plot line which will make you confront a group of tech-priests that have forsaken the name of the Omnissiah.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus – Heretek gameplay

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus – Heretek adds five new missions to the game, as well as new weapons, a new discipline that will let you specialize in xenotechnology, and a couple of new troops called Infiltrators and Ruststalkers. Holding the Necrons at bay while you fight this new faction won´t be an easy task, and you might even find yourself having to defend your own ship, the Ark Mechanicus.

If you want to delve a bit deeper in the universe of Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, you should consider getting this expansion. It’s planned to be released on July 23, and it has all the potential to make one of the best Warhammer 40,000 games that we have seen in the recent years a tad better.
