In the weekly changing free games in the Epic Games Store, a well-rated global strategy game in the Warhammer universe is coming up in the coming week.
While the tropical adventure Call of the Sea is currently available for free on the Epic Games Store, the next free game will follow from March 16th at 5 p.m., this time being a representative of the popular Warhammer franchise. Specifically, it is Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War, released in 2018, which offers players dark 4X strategy.
Usually the title costs on the Epic Games Store and on Steam 31.99 euros or 33.99 euros, but is currently already reduced to 3.19 euros at Epic. If you wait until next Thursday, you can save the price entirely and get a well-rated single and multiplayer strategy game including co-op.
This is what Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War offers
In the strategy offshoot of Warhammer40,000 four factions fight in a relentless war for control of the resource deposits on the planet Gladius Primus. Players command the Warhammer factions Astra Militarum, Space Marines, Orcs or Necrons and can draw on their individual gameplay and researchable technology trees.
The aim is to explore a randomly generated game world with life-threatening flora and fauna and to secure control over ancient artifacts and raw materials. By constructing buildings, fortifications and entire cities, players will expand and raise armies with devastating weapons and heroic units while learning the history of the ravaged planet Gladius Primus.
In the Steam reviews, the majority of players, 81 percent, rated the game very positively in over 5,000 ratings. Above all, the combat-based focus and the X4 implementation are praised, while the prices for additional factions that can be retrofitted via DLC are occasionally criticized. As so often, the whole thing is worth it as a free game, of course.
