The Chaos Space Marines are coming! A new DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Gladius!

Sometimes, our battle seems eternal. We fought with Horus at Terra and with Abaddon at Cadia. A handful of ancients even remember the pacification of Luna, fighting alongside the False Emperor as we crushed the gene-cultists.

Yes, we have fought a long, long war. Yet, these ten thousand years, our Warband has been undivided in its faith, even though the Imperium still stands.

When Cadia fell, we were there. We made our prayers to the Dark Gods for guidance and entered the Warp behind Abaddon’s fleet, and there we stayed, stuck like insects in some dead gods’ amber.

We wandered dark corners, lost to the warp’s delights, until our craft found an entryway to… this dead planet. This pathetic world that stinks of the Corpse God’s Empire and more.

Why have we been brought here? Something is here, something the Dark Gods need us to claim. We will find it and make it our own.


Warhammer 40,000: Gladius is back with a new playable faction, the Chaos Space Marines.

Fueled by their hatred for the Imperium, they will stop at nothing before they exact their revenge. Fielding hellish machines, wielding Warp powers and possessing the experience of a thousand wars, these ancient warriors are ready to conquer Gladius Prime, killing and enslaving all who oppose them. In the name of the Warmaster, and their Dark Gods.

The new DLC Chaos Space Marines introduces a brand new faction, with new unique mechanics and 18 new units. The new gameplay mechanics are tailored around the unique nature of the Chaos Space Marines faction. They can sacrifice their own population to please the Dark Gods and obtain their benevolence in the form of boons bestowed upon them. They can also benefit from the Dark Gods generosity to upgrade their units with powerful Marks of Chaos. And of course, they units can either become Daemon Princes if they perform well on the battlefield or, if they are unlucky, they can be demoted to Chaos Spawns.

Naturally, the new faction comes with a whole new set of units, technologies, buildings and quests!

Chaos Space Marines is now available for pre-order on Steam, at 10% off discount! You can pre-order it here.
