Ever since Games Workshop relaxed their hold on the Warhammer 40,000 license we've been getting a steady stream of games set in the grim darkness of the far future, with Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus being the most recently announced one. As you might expect from a game featuring the Adeptus Mechanicus, you're going to be able to upgrade the weak flesh of your Tech-Priests with a variety of mechanical augments, and then use said augments to decimate the enemies of the Omnissiah in strategic turn-based combat.

The details are still few and far between, but what I can tell you is that the story in Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus will be penned by Ben Counter - an author with quite a few books and short stories set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. While the recently posted trailer won't give you much information to ponder over, it will give you a pretty darn good idea of what tone Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus is aiming for, so I'd suggest you give it a look regardless:

That's pretty much the long and short of it as far as concrete information is concerned, but if you would like to learn a few more tidbits you should head on over to Steam. On the other hand, if you would like to follow its development moving forward you should visit the official website instead, but don't expect to find much in terms of details just yet. As for the release date, you can expect Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus to arrive on PC, Mac and Linux at some point in 2018.

And finally, I'll leave you with a couple of the most recent images. They won't tell you much, but they're certainly interesting an interesting bunch. Oh, and if you want the bigger version, just click on the image!
