Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Craftworld Aeldari is the latest expansion to the first turn-based 4x strategy game in the Warhammer universe. As the name suggests, the Craftworld Aeldari expansion brings in another new race that you can control or fight again.

"In the base game, the player could face the conquest and the exploration of Gladius with the heroic Space Marines, the brutal Orks, the brave Imperium and the relentless Necrons. With the additional DLCs, the player can lead the new factions such as the ravenous Tyranids, the corrupted Chaos Space Marines and the ambitious T’au. Now another faction join the fight with the swift and deadly Craftworld Aeldari, one of the most ancient races in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, having turned war into a fine art."

The Craftworld Aeldari bring 19 highly versatile new units with options for long and close range, along with their own fresh gameplay mechanics. Check out the release trailer below:

A great game by a studio that has been supportive of Linux players from the start, I’m impatient to see what they are going to do next

I hope there will be a complete edition with all the DLC/factions.
