Back to News Listing Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Post-release update

Posted: Thursday, July 26, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

Type: News

The release of Warhammer 40,000: Gladius was a huge event for us, and we are really happy with how it went. We’re also very happy with how the game has been received so far: we’ve heard a lot of enthusiastic comments and opinions, from both the public and influencers. We’re really glad to see you guys like the game.

Naturally, we’ve also received some exceptional feedback: lots of good ideas, suggestions and criticism. We are really grateful for all kinds of feedback. We have been doing our best to gather all of this feedback and process it. It was particularly useful for all the updates we have worked on so far.

In fact, we’ve released several updates in just a few days, with the team working non-stop to keep improving the game and making it better and better, following this feedback. Balance changes, bug fixes as well as some much requested new features like UI scaling and MP chat were introduced in a short time – and we won’t stop here. In fact we have just released a new patch today bringing several new tools for multiplayer.

We’ve received a lot of questions about Gladius and its future, and today we’ll try to answer to the most common ones.

 

1) Do you plan to add more content?

Answer: Yes. We’re already working on it. Gladius will be a long journey, one that has just begun. You can expect news soon. To give a more detailed answer, we plan to keep polishing the game and our support will be constant and frequent. Alongside frequent updates, we have plans to expand the game and add lots of new content. We have so many ideas ourselves, and many more that you guys gave us.

 

2) Do you plan to add more races?

Answer: Yes :) we do. There are several races that we plan to add in Gladius. They will definitely come. Needless to say, each one of them will have a unique approach to the gameplay, just like the existing playable factions. We know you guys would love to have your favourite faction added to the game, and we’ll do our best not do disappoint you.

 

3) I have a great idea that I think would make the game better and should be implemented.

Answer: That’s great! We love to hear your thoughts. Please do post about it on our Steam forumSlitherine forum or our social media. We can’t promise that we’ll implement it: some we might not agree with, or it might not integrate well with the other systems. We might have other plans. Or maybe there won’t be enough time or resources. But we’ll certainly listen.

 

4) I have found a bug! Help me please!

Answer: we’re a small team and we don’t have a huge QA department, but we’re doing our best to give you as smooth an experience as possible. As we already mentioned above, we’ve already released plenty of updates so far, and we’ll continue to do so, so if you find a bug please report it on the Slitherine Support Forum or Steam Support forum.

 

5) I’m slightly confused about a specific feature of the game, what can I do?

Answer: Gladius is a deep game and some players sometimes have trouble understanding all the game’s mechanics and thus have trouble at formulating an optimal strategy. The best way to learn the game is to play the introductory scenario as the Space Marines and then read the help tips. The in game Compendium is also extremely useful as it contains all info about the game’s mechanics. Two other great places where you can find lots of useful info are the manual and the Wiki page.

 

6) Where can I find an opponent for multiplayer?

Answer: the best place would be the fans Discord group! It’s a great place to meet and chat with other Gladius fans, and you’ll have no trouble finding other players for multiplayer and you can also make new friends.

 

Let’s conclude this update by saying a big Thank you for your constant support. We’re really happy and we are looking forward to announce what the future holds for Gladius. Stay tuned!

War in the Pacific AE Twitch with Giveaway

Friday, December 7, 2018

On December 7th 19141, the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service launched "Operation AI", a pre-emptive strike against the US Pacific Fleet stationing at the Hawaiian base of Pearl Harbor. On that day - "the day of infamy" on Roosevelt words - the Japanese damaged seriously all the battleships and sunk some, almost a hundred of US aircraft got destroyed and more than two thousand men were killed. The Japanese thought to have put the United States off from the chance to interfere with the establishment of the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. What they did, on the contrary, was to wake a sleeping bear. 

December 7th didn't mark the supremacy of the Japanese Empire, it marked the beginning of its end.

1939. The sand is slipping fast through the hourglass and the clouds of war are gathering all around the globe. While in Europe Germany is ready to finally challenge the order established with the Versailles Treaty and Italy is eager to expand its colonial dominion, in the Far East the Empire of Japan – already embroiled in a bitter war against China – has already proved to be a formidable adversary and soon it will have to face the rising American hostility.

Can Germany, Italy and Japan triumph and construct their new world order, or will triumph turn to disaster as the rest of the world mobilizes to meet force with force?

Armored Brigade AAR: The Defense of Rotenburg

Major Max Maurer sat quietly in his command-post, contemplating what the next day or two might bring. His command, “D” Company of 311 Panzergrenadier Battalion, 31 Panzergrenadier Brigade was as ready as he could have it. He was pleased with the calm professionalism his team had displayed during their deployment to Rotenburg, and for the seamless way his reinforcements had amalgamated into their new command. It spoke highly of the pre-war training the brigade and division had underwent, to prepare them for this moment.
