Big Redd was looking at the horizon: in front of him, corpses. Lots of corpses. Some were Orks, but many were clad in blue-grey armor, their shoulder pads yellow and black. Space Wolves. The big weirdboy reached for one of the helmets littering the ground and stared at it. He looked at the visor lenses soiled with blood and dirt, and grinned. He tossed the helmet as far as he could and bellowed a mighty Waaagh! The voices of a million boyz behind his back joined in, a deafening cry which meant only one thing: destruction was upon Alaric Prime, and there would be no end to it.


Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach is back with its first expansion! In Legacy of the Weirdboy you will play as Big Redd, a ferocious weirdboy. You will lead a mighty Ork horde, with the goal of unleashing a terrible strike on the Imperial defences, one which could seal the fate of the whole Sanctus Reach sector.

Following the release of Sanctus Reach fans and players gave us a lot of feedback on the game, and on what they would like to see. We listened, and we put tons of work into following that feedback.

In this first DLC you will have at your disposal several new units, many new abilities and plenty of new tactical options. Straylight have devoted the same extreme attention to detail as they had for models in the base game, and the new models are gorgeous. We’ll show them in detail soon. The Ork faction has been revamped, and now they have full unit progression in their own campaign. The sense of immersion in the campaign is enhanced thanks to the new comic book style illustrations which capture the theme of the game and its setting.

We are very satisfied by how this title is shaping up and we are sure that Sanctus Reach fans won’t be disappointed! This is only the first of a long series of releases and our work has just begun! We will show and tell more about Legacy of the Weirdboy as we get closer to release, so stay tuned.

Empires Apart Dev Diary - The goal of the game

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

In our previous dev diaries we focused on the different available game modes, as well as the design behind the UI. Today we are going to cover a number of different subjects, but all have something in common: why we decided to make Empires Apart.

It’s no secret that we drew heavy inspiration from games that marked our childhood: Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and others. We wanted to bring back that feeling, the familiar atmosphere of games we loved, but also add our own touch, as well as modernize the formula, bring it to 2018’s standards. Empires Apart is, basically, the game we wanted to play.


Desert War Mechanicics .Shock Explained

Tuesday, March 13, 2018


“Everyone was talking and chatting, when slowly came into sight the first tank I ever saw.  Not a monster but a very graceful machine with beautiful lines….  Here was the missing tool of penetration, the answer to the dominance on the battlefield of small-arms fire.”—J.F.C. Fuller

Matrix Games/Slitherine’s upcoming release of Brian Kelly’s Desert War 1940-42 uses a simple game mechanic often found in WWII board games.  It gives tank units a “special place” in the player’s toolbox—a positive shift to the combat force ratio if attacking, and the opposite when defending.  Coming up short of attack factors?  No problem!  Throw in some tanks.  A 1 to 1 attack can become a 2 to 1, 3 to 1, 4 to 1, etc.  In Desert War 1940
