Warhammer 40k: Mechanicus – Heretek pits cyber-brother against brother

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus was such a pleasant surprise last year, so I'm glad to report that there's an expansion on the way. Heretek, due this summer, is the first DLC announced for Bulwark Studios's offbeat squad tactics game.

In the grim darkness of the... [HIDDEN MOVEMENT]...far future, there is only... [HIDDEN MOVEMENT]...war.Given the number of Warhammer 40K videogames clogging up Steam's arteries these days, it's surprising how few of 'em take an XCOMmy, turn-based squad tactics approach. There's 1998's Chaos Gate, and 2015's slightly too straightforward and more RPGy Deathwatch, and that's about it. Perhaps the newly-announced Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus will fill that…
