What the press says about the Tyranids...

Last week we released the latest DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Gladius, Tyranids.

We are really glad to have read such favourable comments from players on Steam and on online forums. As usual your feedback is very important, so please let us know on our forum if you have suggestions or criticism.

The press also spoke at length of this new expansion.

PC Gamer felt it's a really good addition to the game, while Gamewatcher highly recommends it to any Gladius fan. 4X strategy site Explorminate awarded Gladius the title of 4X Game of the Year and also reviewed the Tyranids' unique mechanics in this video.

If you'd rather listen to a podcast, the guys at Three Moves Ahead ran an episode about the Tyranids just yesterday. If you belong to the francophone audience you might want to read Wargamer France's AAR while if you are an Italian native speaker don't miss the review from Tom's Hardware.

These are just a few of the magazines and online sites which reviewed this DLC. Which one did you like most?

Emperor preserve us! The Tyranids are here!




War spares no one: Orks, Necrons, Astra Militarum, Adeptus Astartes. All are spilling blood. But no one expected this.

It started as a rumour: xeno test subjects escaping from an Adeptus Mechanicus research facility. Then it turned into something more sinister... word of something lurking in the remote corners of Gladius Prime, ever growing, driven by an insatiable hunger.

Now everything has changed: the Tyranids are here!

Tyranids is the new DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Gladius. Lead a brand new faction, the Tyranids, in their effort to conquer Gladius!

With new gameplay mechanics, new units, research tree and questline, the Tyranids are a unique addition to Warhammer 40,000: Gladius. Tyranids is available on PC and Linux. You can buy it by visiting its product page.

Tyranids is being released alongside a sizeable update to Warhammer 40,000: Gladius, which introduces a highly requested feature: Steam Achievements! You can read the full changelog here.

We will be streaming the new DLC live on our Twitch channel today at 6 pm GMT. Richard Yorke will be the Hive Mind: will he manage to consume his foes?

Last but not least: to celebrate the Tyranid invasion we will be discounting Warhammer 40,000: Gladius at 25% off for today, starting at 6 pm GMT! What are you waiting for?

“[…] there’s a lot of action-saturated, tactically-driven fun to be had when you look at Gladius for what it truly is: a really well-done, turn-based 40K wargame. It’s one of the best turn-based 40K games I’ve played through that lens.”
7.9/10 – IGN

“Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War is further proof that we shouldn't look at AAA studios to deliver a good 40K strategy experience.”
4/5 – Strategy Gamer

“Too many strategy games mistake detail for design, activity for gameplay. Gladius knows better.”
4/5 – Quarter to Three

New DLC!

About This Game

Gladius Prime was known to Imperial scholars as a planet of archeological interest. During its colonization ancient relics were found, revealing hints of a shrouded past. But it was more than relics. Something awakened, an unspeakable horror from an ancient past, and the citizens of Gladius found themselves trapped in a terrible war for survival.

Gladius Prime was once a planet of peace. Now there is only war.

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War brings you to a world of terror and violence with the first turn-based 4X strategy game set in the Warhammer universe. Face challenging AI or cooperate or compete with friends and strangers across the globe.



Play as one of four iconic Warhammer factions (Astra Militarum, Space Marines, Orks or Necrons), each with their own unique playstyle and technology tree. Explore a randomly generated world filled with special features and threatening wildlife that can crush your troop's morale. Secure control of powerful ancient artefacts to grant you an edge against rival factions.



Construct cities, buildings and fortifications to expand your empire and produce an army to vanquish your foes. Harvest resources and research new technologies to fuel and upgrade your machinery of war.



Progress through a different storyline with each faction as their destiny on Gladius Prime, a world tainted by the warp, unfolds. In the end, when all the dust has settled, only one faction can emerge victorious.



Command a wide array of devastating weaponry, issue city edicts and deploy tactical operations. Recruit hero units that possess distinct special abilities and can be equipped with items, ranging from advanced grenades to mighty relics of the past. As they become more and more powerful with each rank, they turn into true champions of your cause.
