Skulls for the Skull Throne 3 + 1.2.4 - Augment Update


Skulls for the Skull Throne is back and Mechanicus is proud to be taking part with a massive 35% discount on both the special Omnissiah Edition as well as the standard base game.

The festival of Warhammer Gaming continues over the weekend and along with the savings, players can also take advantage of the brand new, and totally free, update to the game.



Augment Update = LIVE
After three weeks of public beta testing the Augment Update is now live!
Over those weeks we’ve been able to tweak the numbers to get the experience just right. With the help of the community (thanks guys you’re the best!) we’ve also been able to iron out the experience.

How much is the Augment Update?
Free! The whole thing is free of charge!

What’s in the Augment Update
Lets just rehash what we said three weeks ago.
There's a lot! Here's a really brief summary;
  • IronMan Mode
  • Permadeath
  • Difficulty settings
  • A huge array of Customisation option for those difficulty settings
  • Exploration has been polished
  • Tons of polish to UI elements, enough to make a servo-skull weep sacred oils
  • Fonts are cleaner
  • Balance changes for a couple of things
  • Turkish localisation added!

But I want to play Mechanicus Classic
We understand that some people don’t like change. That’s understandable, certainly from my personal point of view, us brits can be traditional! Rambling aside, you can still access Mechanicus Classic through the steam beta branch titled mechanicus-classic – 1.1.4 – pre-Augment Update. You can find out how to do this here
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1571440010
The mechanicus-classic branch will stay as 1.1.4 forever. This is to avoid any issues should saved games not be backwards compatible for whatever reason, or you’re a huge fan of vanilla.

Heretek Expansion is available for wishlisting!
https://store.steampowered.com/app/1049290/Warhammer_40000_Mechanicus__Heretek/

Heretek is the expansion to the critically acclaimed tactical turn-based Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus. Opening a whole new plot line, Heretek exposes the dark underbelly of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction like never before. Brand new narrative events have been handcrafted once again by Ben Counter, allowing players to uncover what has brought civil unrest to The Caestus Metalican during its campaign at Silva Tenebris. Take on frighteningly familiar foes, a cohort of heretek Tech-Priests that have changed their beliefs and forsaken the name of the Omnissiah. Can you, Magos Dominus Faustinius manage both an assault on the Necrons while being corrupted from within?

Features
  • New Discipline to utilise: Unlock the Xenarite. A discipline that is specialised in using xenotech, a largely forbidden practice for those that follow the Omnissiah! Plus all new augments for you to customise the appearance of your Tech-Priest.
  • 5 new missions: Experience five new missions based in the Ark Mechanicus, each with a new delivery system for narrative. The choices you make will impact the battle for that mission.
  • New weapons to discover: Xeno-altered weapons open up devastating possibilities, coupled with support tech that opens up new play styles.
  • Two new Troops to command: Sicarian Infiltrators and Ruststalkers are now available to unlock. Pass through Necron and Heretek limbs alike with the Transonic Blades of the Ruststalker or take the stealthy route with the Infiltrators and spring an unexpected ambush.
  • New but familiar enemies to face: Face your fellow brother Tech-Priests in an internal conflict over Necron xenotech while also holding back the wakening of the Necrons.
  • New mission environment: Experience combat inside an Ark Mechanicus for the first time in Warhammer 40,000 history.

Open Beta - future update - all welcome!

Let's keep this short,
but informative,
and awesome.

We have an Open Beta!
and here's the run down.


Oh, how busy we have been!
We know we've been silent recently, but all for good reason! We've put our heads down focusing on some things we're not able to announce right now, some things that a few people have discovered over on our Discord channel, and finally, what we're all here for, the purpose of this post, the Augment Update!!!

Now, this isn't the official release, but it's no less important!
This is access to the update before the official release. You can access the update on our PTR beta branch, which you can find out how to join here https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1571440010

What are the key points of the update
There's a lot! So here's a really brief summary;
  • IronMan Mode
  • Permadeath
  • Difficulty settings
  • A huge array of Customisation option for those difficulty settings
  • Exploration has been polished
  • Tons of polish to UI elements, enough to make a servo-skull weep sacred oils
  • Fonts are cleaner
  • Balance changes for a couple of things
  • Turkish localisation added!

Now, this is a really brief list! Check out all the Patch notes, future, current or past in this ultimate ChangeLog

We'd really appreciate any feedback on this build, the more the merrier! If you do please make sure you put 1.2.0 beta into your posts either here or on Discord.

I have an idea for a tickbox or modifier, how do I share this
Well, now we've worked hard at the structure of the Customisable Difficulty while also finding meaningful options for you guys to play with, we want to hear what you have to say!

Please post your ideas in the Customise Difficulty suggestions sub-forum so that we can easily identify them for consideration. Please note not all idea are possible. We will do what we can.

I'm going to wait for final release
Just so you know your saves for the beta will be able to carry over to release ;)
But if you're not a beta person that's fine, we will push this build live sometime in the future.
Now if you're currently in a game, we've made a branch called Mechanicus-Classic for all those that want no disruption from this update.

The Mechanicus-Classic branch will stay as 1.1.4 (the current version) forever. This is to avoid any issues should saved games not be backwards compatible for whatever reason.

About This Game


Take control of one of the most technologically advanced armies in the Imperium - The Adeptus Mechanicus. As Magos Dominus Faustinius, you’ll lead the expedition on the newly rediscovered Necron planet of Silva Tenebris. Customize your team, manage resources, discover long-forgotten tech, and control your Tech-Priests’ every move.

Your every decision will shape the missions ahead and ultimately decide the fate of the troops under your command in over 50 hand-crafted missions. Choose your path carefully - the Imperium depends on it.

Augment

Flesh is weak! Upgrade your Tech-Priests with weapons, support items, Servo-Skulls and other mechanical augments as you assemble your cohort. Customize your team’s disciplines, choosing from multiple character classes to create a squad for every playstyle.

Unique Tactical Combat

Engage in immersively strategic combat that will test your mettle under the extreme pressure of the xenos ambush. Access your most powerful weapons and abilities by using Cognition Points and advance on your enemy without pause. Fear not, the Omnissiah favours the brave.

The Library of Immersion

A compelling story written by Black Library author, Ben Counter, specifically crafted to fit the unique personality of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction, with each character having their own personalities and agendas. Feel the tension and admire the devotion with unique visual effects and breathtaking audio.

Difficult Decisions

Make tough decisions that will forge the future from your Ark Mechanicus, The Caestus Metalican, and send you towards alternate endings for a truly unique playthrough. Be warned, however, the more you explore each tomb, the greater the rewards but also greater the threat.

Canticles of the Omnissiah

Collect in-game achievements and be rewarded with strong abilities that can be used once per mission to aid you in the heat of battle.

and so much more
