The PC version will be released in May 2021, while it will be released on consoles later during the summer.

You will get to experience every bone-rattling explosion and soul-crushing charge in Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector. Pick your force, develop your army, field mighty heroes and fight for victory using superior strategy, awesome abilities, and devastating weaponry, turn by turn on grid-based maps.

The factions available will be the Blood Angels Space Marines used in the single player game and the Tyranids race useable in the multiplayer and skirmish modes. The game is planned to be modular and introducing new factions, units, heroes and tilesets in future expansions.

Armies will range from 10 to 25 units with each unit potentially comprising several individual models. For instance, a Hero or a Dreadnought has an individual model, a unit of Intercessors has 5 models, a unit of Tyranid Hormagaunts has 8 models.

Game Modes:

Single Player Campaign - Age of Crimson Dawn

Experience an epic twenty mission single-player campaign that explores the aftermath of the Devastation of Baal. Help Sergeant Carleon and his allies purge the Tyranid infestation on Baal Secundus, and preserve the honour of the noble Blood Angels.

Skirmish Mode

Fight across the surface of Baal on maps of your choosing and select either the Blood Angels or the Tyranids in the Skirmish mode. Completely customize your army list by picking your units, heroes and their loadouts.

Face Your Friends On The Battlefield

With live and asynchronous multiplayer, and hotseat modes available, there’s no excuse not to take your friends to war.


Weapons Loadouts & Abilities

Most units have access to multiple weapon loadout options and upto 4 unique special abilities.

Take Cover

You can take cover behind environmental objects as well as other units to gain cover bonuses during battle, and you’ll protect your units from enemy fire.

You can set up Overwatch on your firing units, so that any enemy unit which enters your field of fire during their turn will be fired upon. This is a similar feature to people that have played Gears Tactics or other turn based games.

Air Support

The HQ Command system lets the player call in faction-specific air support; Blood Angels call in a Stormraven to unleash fury on their enemy or reinforce with more Assault Marines, while the Tyranids can call in the Harpy to devastate the enemy or scatter spore mines across the battlefield.


The Momentum system plays a key role to the gameplay. It lets units surge on the battlefield, allowing them to perform superhuman chains of actions, or upgrade their abilities.

Carry-over your units in the campaign

When you play the campaign you will be able to carry your troops from battle to battle, as long as they survive. After each battle you’ll be able to spend points on new units & loadouts.

Campaign HQ Command Points

Campaign HQ Command Points let the player unlock abilities, weapons, and unique passive bonuses. Each Hero has a specific set of HQ Command perks they can unlock, some will upgrade the specific Hero and others will upgrade and give bonuses to all units in the army. You can gain HQ Command Points by completing objectives in the campaign.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector will be released on PC in May 2021; a console version (Xbox One and PS4) will follow in the summer.
