Kasedo Games has teased us with a new upcoming Warhammer 40k game, Mechanicus . We'll likely be taking control and viewing the game through the Tech-Priest's eyes in this turn based strategy game.
I'm not that big into turn based strategy (even though I own and play XCOM,Disgaea and the older FF titles), but I'll wait to see future trailers showing off some gameplay before making a final decision.
That said, the lore sounds a little bit off, but I'm sure they'll stick as close as they can to the lore of the Adeptus Mechanicus.
The Steam page for the game is already up as well:
From the Steam page:
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 planet of Silva Tenebris. Manage resources, discover long-forgotten tech, plan tactical operations using the Noosphere technology 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. However, choose your path carefully - the Imperium depends on it.
Flesh is weak! Upgrade your Tech-Priests limbs with mechanical augments made from the blessed metals of the Omnissiah. Customize your team with hundreds of possibilities, creating a squad to suit your playstyle.
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.
Experience the Noosphere
Use the Adeptus Mechanicus’ evolved human cognition to scan unexplored tombs for valuable data in order to gain a tactical advantage over your enemy.
A compelling story written by Black Library author, Ben Counter, specifically crafted to fit the unique personality of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction.
The game is set to release sometime this year.
