The Chaos Space Marines have arrived in Warhammer 40,000: Gladius

Posted by , | Views: 4,263

Today Proxy Studios and Slitherine have released the latest DLC for the turn-based strategy game Warhammer 40,000: Gladius, with the Chaos Space Marines making their way across the planet.

Also available today is a big save-breaking patch. Update 1.3, which is actually a pretty huge patch for the game adds in new items, new achievements, new tips, new settings, performance improvements, fixes to the AI, save game format improvements to reduce UI lag with large saves, a mod management screen and there's quite a bit more. Good to see it really well supported a year after the original release.

Feature highlight:

  • Boons of Chaos - Champions who prove themselves in battle might find boons bestowed upon them by the Dark Gods, and even rise to the rank of Daemon Prince. But beware, for the Gods are fickle, and those who they do not consider worthy will be transformed into Chaos Spawns instead.
  • Veterans of the Long War - Chaos Space Marines have fought a 10,000 years long war on the Imperium and its Corpse-Emperor. All servants of the Imperium are their arch-enemy: as thus all Chaos Space Marines units have experience in fighting against Space Marine units and gain increased morale and melee accuracy.
  • Unholy Rites - Chaos cities are designed to glorify the Dark Gods and torture their inhabitants in the Gods’ name. Population is a resource that Chaos Space Marines can use for unholy rites, granting significant temporary boosts depending on the God which is being worshipped.
  • Mark of Chaos - Worship any of the four Chaos Gods, and spend influence to gain unique permanent buffs to individual units. The Dark Gods are generous!

I have enjoyed quite a number of hours in it before this, especially with the previously released Tyranids DLC. It is a good game, great if you love both strategy games and Warhammer. I would still like the combat animations to be a bit more exciting but the rest seems good.

You can pick up the game and DLC from Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

Whelp , here's a purchase i regret.
It does not start on Linux.
It crashes on my old Windows laptop before i finish one turn.
Here's a refund in the making.
Will wait for some pointers on the linux issues but may ask for a refund before it's too late.

wazz4657This game is dope, but I gotta call out the "well supported" comment...it's not. This is another in a line of games broken on SteamOS and other distros (glibc), and I've spoken to them on the forums, there are no plans to fix. I know how the game goes, and they can't support every distro, and if I'm being honest I could play this on one of my Ubuntu machines, so I'm just bitching...but my gaming rig is SteamOS, and this will likely never run there again. Wasted my $$$ on all the DLC up till now, but I will not be buying this xpac, unfortunately.

that's why I switched to Linux Mint after years of using OpenSuse. 90% of my library runs fine but there is 3 or 4 games that I have problems with. Getting used to apt is going to take some time. But, I think there is plenty lifespan over LTS ubuntu based distros till the final 32 bit doomsday.
There's very little difference across distros on the graphics stacks and driver, games shouldn't have that kind of problems when switching distros but I understand the developers point of view on this. In an ideal world ppl shouldn't be forced to use Ubuntu (or ubuntu based distros) but yeah, sh*t happens (in this case bad developing decisions).

This is why I use flatpak on openSUSE. In fact my whole setup is minimal Gnome desktop, and all user apps are flatpaks - runs a treat and has no issues at all.

What distro? You probably wanna find the binary and run " ldd gladius.bin" from a terminal and look at the dependencies.

I'm very surprise by the comments, I've been playing the game for a while on Arch with the GOG versions. I never had any issue.

I'm doing the same on Fedora Silverblue. Minimal GNOME with applications in flatpaks and I don't have any issue with Steam in flatpak, it's just running.

Thanks for this comment because I was getting a bad impression. Looks like you have AMD GPU and razing has Nvidia. Sounds like there's a good chance it would work just dandy on my rig.

Uninstalled it in frustration
Re-installed it to gather some data and open a case
It works now
