Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus expansion official artwork without logo

If you've completed everything Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus has to offer and you're itching for more, you might be interested to hear that its very first expansion Heretek has now arrived. However, while there is a good chunk of new content to toy around with, it is worth mentioning that the Heretek expansion is more similar to a DLC in scope.

As far as the new content is concerned, the Heretek expansion has brought with it a new Discipline that specializes in using alien technology, as well as two new alien weapons to really bring down the hurt upon your enemies. There's also two new troops to command, Sicarian Infiltrators and Ruststalkers, as well as five new missions set in the freshly introduced Ark Mechanicus environment.

In terms of story, the Heretek expansion is unfortunately quite light on content. You'll spend most of your time fighting a rebellion started by your fellow Tech-Priests over the use of Necron technology, and while that does have the potential for some interesting character development, the story never really goes anywhere. On the positive side, the missions themselves are as tough as nails, so do prepare yourself for a rather interesting challenge!

You can get a small sneak peek at what all of this looks like in-game through the recently posted teaser trailer. It's not exactly a detailed one, but it sure is green and flashy! Have a little peek:

For more details, or just to grab yourself a copy of the expansion, you should head on over to Steam. Have fun!
