The Warhammer series has seen many mobile releases, and almost all of them are horrible cash-grabs. Apparently, Games Workshop will license the property out to anyone, but for once, I have a Warhammer announcement that's actually good news. You see, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is a well-reviewed strategy game from PC and consoles that's coming to mobile soon. To be more specific, this is a turned-based strategy game that plays similarly to the X-Com series, and it's coming to Android and iOS tablets on April 22nd.

Kalypso Media has just announced that it will bring Kasedo Games’s PC and console strategy game Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus to Android and iOS as a tablet-oriented release. It will land on April 22nd for $11.99, and the Heretek DLC is included. This means the game will land as a premium release, which is always fantastic news. As you would expect, the game is being reworked for touchscreen controls, though I would hope Kalypso also retains the controller support found in the PC and console versions for those of us that prefer to play tablet games with controllers.

So there you have it. There's a Warhammer game coming to mobile, and for once it's going to be a quality release. So if you're already a fan of Warhammer, or simply enjoy quality tactical games like X-Com, then you should definitely keep your eyes peeled for the release of Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus on Android this April.

For the Machine is Immortal! Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus coming to iPad and Android Tablets this April

Campaign amongst Necron tombs in the strategic battle for Silva Tenebris

This press release is under embargo until February 18th at 14:00 GMT

Leicester, UK - February 18, 2021 - Kalypso Media today announces its turn-based strategy game, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, is coming to iPad and Android tablets. This adaption of Kasedo Games’s PC and console title will be released as a premium title on April 22nd and will include the full original title and the Heretek DLC.

Players will lead their Adeptus Mechanicus forces on an epic quest across the planet Silva Tenebris to salvage ancient technologies hidden deep inside Necron tombs. Taking the role of the Tech-priest Dominus Faustinius, players must customise their team from a variety of troop types, disciplines and augments. They must then control their squad’s every move and manage vital resources on their epic journey through carefully hand-crafted missions to discover long-forgotten tech.

Featuring strategic combat in which players will test their mettle under the extreme pressure of a Xenos ambush, every battle won and every tomb explored sees not just the threat increase but also the rewards for surviving. Collecting in-game achievements will unlock powerful abilities that can be used once a mission to alter the course of battle. The Heretek DLC also adds five additional missions to the base game and thrusts players deeper into the dark underbelly of the Adeptus Mechanicus faction as they face-off against the heretic Tech-Priests.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus has a compelling story written by Black Library author, Ben Counter, which stays faithful to the lore and is sure to attract hardcore Warhammer fans as well as strategy gamers. Players will feel the tension of their mission through unique visual effects and breathtaking audio, all held in the palm of their hands on Apple and Android tablets.

comes to the Apple App Store for iOS and Google Play Store for Android as a premium game priced at €12.99/ £11.99/ $11.99 on April 22nd. Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is playable in English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Turkish.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus lands on the Play Store for $12

As promised, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is now available on the Google Play Store. You can pick it up for $12, and there are no in-app purchases or advertisements within. This is a premium release. In fact, this is a port of the PC and console game, which means it's a full-fledged title that offers tons of hours of fun.

At its core, this is a deep and rewarding strategy game that's positively reviewed across all of its release platforms, and the Android port holds its own amongst this crowd. One caveat, you'll definitely want to play on a tablet since the UI is cluttered and small, but beyond this minor issue, the game is pretty fun.
