What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Membraine Studios is a small team—Glenn and Mark. We need feedback from a larger base of players who will help us understand what's working and what we need to improve. If you understand what Early Access is about, you're happy to be part of a journey of discovery with us, and you love the idea of helping shape Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus by giving us your constructive criticism in our Steam Discussions forums or Facebook, it would be great to have you on board.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The Full Release date is currently a moving target. Between our own ideas and ambitions for the game and the feedback we anticipate our community may contribute as we make the game together, we are unsure how long we'll be working on the game, but we think a reasonable estimate is somewhere between six months and a year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We plan to expand the number of battlefields and the roster of Titans variants over time in regular updates. We also want to add more significant features, like Steam Achievements and a loot-drop system, in the Major Updates we have planned. Beyond these things, we also hope to be able to implement new ideas and features that our community may request—all reasonable requests will be considered...but we're not making any promises.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access build of Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus features the following:
  • A true-to-source adaptation of the Titan Legions tabletop rules, streamlined for PC
  • Nine Titan variants, three each for the Warlord, Reaver and Warhound
  • Four Loyalist Legios and four Chaos Legios to choose from
  • Three battlefields, each with distinct environments
  • Destructible terrain features - watch buildings collapse as stray weapons fire obliterates their structural integrity
  • Several game modes with multiple victory conditions - there is more than one way to win
  • Eight fixed-forces scenarios to challenge your skills as Legate of a Maniple of Titans
  • Discover the strategic depth underlying the game, with points-based army list building in Skirmish and Multi-Player via the Detachment Builder

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price at Early Access launch will be commensurate with the amount of content available in the game at that time. We intend to then raise the price with each Major Update, as by the time each of these updates is released, significant new content should have been added to the game. We feel this approach will appropriately reward those gamers who join us on our Early Access journey, and will particularly reward those who join us right from the start.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to recreate the world of Adeptus Titanicus and the glorious Warhammer 40,000 universe on PC, doing justice to that universe and forging a true-to-source game to which players want to return again and again. To achieve this, we will need constructive feedback from the community on each Early Access release. Feedback like this will enable us to amend and prioritise our development cycle as appropriate. We will of course avidly monitor our Steam Discussions forum, but we will be particularly active on our Facebook page, where you will be able to engage with us in public and/or private discussions, depending on your preference.”

Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus shooting model and other behind-the-scenes changes

Hi everyone! It's Mark here with news about a significant change Glenn and I have made to how shooting works in Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus.

Changes to how shooting works
We have reviewed our approach to weapon shooting and implemented a better, more visceral approach where shooting always occurs regardless of range or target, yet retains the same chances of causing damage.

All weapons will now fire regardless of range or intervening terrain, except where friendly targets are in the way; however, objects in the way will of course block your shots, and if your target is beyond the weapon's range, the shots are almost guaranteed to miss. In effect, a weapon's range is no longer its maximum range, but rather an effective range.

This should make shooting feel more epic, with a greater chance for terrain to be destroyed by errant fire—buildings should collapse more often, and in fact deliberately targeting units just to clear intervening buildings is a valid and often useful tactic.

This should also stop the situation where players felt weapons should have fired but they did not, as this was seemingly the result of unperceived intervening terrain.

There are many changes in this update that might (and probably will) need further change, but for now we are happy this is a good first step. We will be eagerly reading your feedback to see what you think of the direction we have taken.

Power Fist fixes and improvements
Our initial implementation of the Reaver Power Fists had some issues that took us a while to spot, but the net effect of these was that Power Fists were not as potent as they should have been in single-player (they worked properly in multi-player, but have been tweaked there also). This has now been rectified, so you should find Power Fists are now more deadly than ever.

Upgrade to Unity version
We have updated to a later version of Unity in order to improve our overall efficiency. While this unplanned-for exercise derailed development by a couple of weeks, development will be smoother and faster going forward as a result, so the time spent is not lost time and is very worthwhile.

Updating Unity required extensive reworking on pretty much everything in the game to ensure nothing was broken. At this point, it seems nothing is broken, but we'll be keeping a keen eye on it in case we've missing anything. From a player's perspective, everything should look and feel much the same, but frame-rate may have improved for players with lower-spec PCs.

No longer supporting DirectX9
As part of our Unity upgrade, we have been forced to abandon support for DirectX9. Impact to players should be non-existent, however, given less than 1% of Windows users are still running Windows XP and DirectX9, and almost all of these are business users forced to remain on XP for various, non gaming-related reasons.

One immediate benefit of this change is that players with more recent video cards may perceive visual improvement, as Dominus is now able to make greater use of the latest versions of DirectX.

Thank you!
Glenn and I remain extremely grateful to all players in the Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus community for your continuing feedback and support for Dominus as we undertake our Early Access journey. Your Steam reviews and enthusiasm for 40K and Dominus is very much appreciated.

We hope you will continue to add your voices on our Steam Discussions forum, in Discord, on Facebook and on Twitter, sharing your thoughts and opinions with us, and your suggestions as to how we can improve the game and as a team.
— Mark & Glenn

About This Game

Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus, the 3D turn-based strategy PC game adaptation of Games Workshop’s classic Titan Legions tabletop game, puts you in control of the greatest weapons available to the Imperium of Man, the mighty Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus!

Now available on Steam Early Access, Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus features a Skirmish mode and a Scenarios mode against an AI opponent for single-player, as well as an online Multi-Player mode. Upon full release, the game will also offer an exciting single-player campaign.

Control a force of Titans
In Dominus, choose to control a force of Titans from the loyalist Legions of Astorum (Warp Runners), Gryphonicus (War Griffons), Crucius (Warmongers) or Osedax (The Cockatrices), or choose from the traitorous Chaos Legions of Mortis (Death Heads), Vulcanum (Dark Fire), Damnosus (Lords of Ruin) and Fureans (Tiger Eyes).


⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Futuristic warfare
Utilising the tabletop Titan Legions rules system as its foundation, Dominus features an easy-to-play yet deep strategic and tactical experience via its streamlined command system, which sees you and your opponent giving activation orders to your Titans, resulting in fast-paced battles. It successfully marries this strategic play with action sequences as the gargantuan Titans exchange volleys of cannon shots, blistering laser blasts and other epic, super-powered weapons of the far off future!

Easy to play, challenging to master
While luck will play a part as you trade blows with your foe on the futuristic battlefields of the 41st Millennium, your path to victory lies in your army list building and how you manoeuvre your units upon the battlefield. As a commander, you will have access to the most classic, iconic Titan units from the Warhammer 40,000 universe: Warhounds, Reavers and the gigantic Warlord, for both the Imperial and Chaos factions. Each of these Titans will have multiple variants available, featuring different weapon configurations, thereby enabling your Titans to fulfil the battlefield role your strategy demands.

A living battlefield
Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus will feature a "living battlefield" that employs unit and battlefield animations to show players the Warhammer 40,000 universe they know and love.

THE ROAD AHEAD

We have now released the first Major Update and commenced work on the second Major Update for Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus, which focuses primarily on the addition of a single-player campaign mode.


In parallel, we intend to release a series of minor updates to the game, which will typically bring in new Titan weapon systems, new battlefields and/or environment art assets—and of course bug-fixes!
