Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War, the first 4x strategy game in the Warhammer universe is set to arrive on July 12th with Linux support. Developed by Proxy Studios, who're known for the 4x game Pandora: First Contact (which I thought was quite good).
On top of that, they've also announced the you can now pre-order the game on Steam. Of course, we never recommend pre-ordering, but it's there for those who like to show their early support for Proxy Studios continuing to support Linux.
About the game:
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War brings you to a world of terror and violence. Four factions will engage in a brutal war for dominance over the planet’s resources.
In the first 4X turn-based strategy game set in Warhammer 40,000 you will lead one of four factions: Astra Militarum, Space Marines, Orks and Necrons, each with their own unique gameplay, technological tree, units and heroes.
Face a challenging AI or cooperate or compete with friends and strangers across the globe.
I'm pretty keen to see how the setting will lend itself to a 4x game, likely quite well and it certainly does look good. Likely one I will take a proper look at around the release.
