Steam, the popular gaming platform, is currently offering a notable game from its library free of charge for a limited period. PC gamers can now download and keep Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War free of charge.
The game, a turn-based strategy game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, has received a generally positive response from players, with some praising it and others criticizing it. Warhammer 40,000 is a franchise that originated as a tabletop wargame created by Games Workshop in 1987. The brand has become increasingly popular over the years thanks to the success of games such as Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.
The free offer for Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War is part of the Warhammer Skulls: Festival of Video Games sale on Steam and will be available until June 1. In the game, players choose one of four factions to compete for control of the planet’s resources.
Relics of War offers a different gaming experience to other titles in the Warhammer 40,000 series. Instead of a fast-paced first-person shooter, this game is a slower-paced exploration and empire-building game where players can build fortifications and develop their domains in randomly generated worlds. The base game includes four playable factions: Orks, Space Marines, Necrons and Astra Militarum.
Steam has a history of offering free games, and Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War has been well received overall, with fans enjoying the turn-based battles and complex game mechanics. However, some players have criticized the game’s lack of narrative and action sequences.
Games Workshop has significantly expanded the Warhammer brand, with recent developments including a Warhammer TV series starring Henry Cavill. While the franchise may not be for everyone, this free Steam offer provides an easy entry point for those interested in exploring the Warhammer universe.
