Back to News Listing The Sons of Cadia are coming!

The Red Waaagh seems unstoppable: Grukk Face-Rippa and his orks rampage through the Sanctus Reach system and planet after planet fall to the greenskins. Billions die, and there doesn’t seem to be an end to the xenos offensive. 

It is on the planet of Alaric Prime that Castellan Jakren Stein mounts his last stand. This proud son of Cadia knows that there will be no retreat, no surrender. It’ll be victory or death.

The men and women he leads are exceptional individuals, forged in the flames of war and ready for the ultimate sacrifice. They are brave soldiers, utterly loyal and fierce, and will obey any order without hesitation. They know that it’s only their bravery and valour that protect the light from the darkness. They are the first, last and often only line of defense of the Imperium. They are the Astra Militarum!



Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach is back with a new DLC! In Sons of Cadia you’ll play as the mighty Astra Militarum, also known as the Imperial Guard.

Lead many new units in an epic story-based campaign and relive the heroic defense of Alaric Prime!

With a brand-new faction, almost 30 new units, a new terrain type, a new campaign, and a new abilities progression system, Sons of Cadia is an essential expansion to Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach. 



We will reveal more of Sons of Cadia in the coming weeks. The DLC is now in beta, so feel free to sign up and give us a hand with bug squashing. Remember that to be part of the beta you need to own the base game Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach!

We are extremely excited. We have big plans for the series, and the Astra Militarum is but the first faction being added to the series. The universe of Warhammer 40,000 is huge, you can expect us to keep expanding our game system. But for now please keep checking this page! We’ll show you more as we draw closer to release!

Last but not least, don’t miss today’s stream! Agrippa Maxentius is going to lead the Space Wolves (or maybe the Orks?) on the grim battlefields of the 41st millenium. You can be sure it’ll be a carnage (with him in charge it always is). Live on Twitch at 4.30 pm CEST!

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
