About the Campaign:

The anticipated Campaign, written by Ross Watson, will also be available in the full release on August 26. Comprising three acts, see the extract below for information about the setting:

The frontier worlds of the Sargos Sector are no strangers to conflict. Once wracked by warp-anomalies and inhabited by adversarial forces, it was only placed under the heel of Imperial authority two thousand years ago. The capital world of Hethgar Prime was established and settled. Rich in resources, it occupied a strategic location and was well fortified. Regiments were raised on Hethgar to safeguard nearby worlds from aggression.

In two millennia, however, no dire threat approached them. Mankind flourished in relative peace. Much of the system’s military resources were eventually exported to aid in greater conflicts elsewhere. The garrison was spread thin. The great guns that aimed to the skies were largely unmanned.

When alien eyes once again fell upon the Imperial jewel of Hethgar and thought to take it for themselves there was little to stop them. As the skies fell in upon them, it was all the people of Hethgar could do to pray for deliverance. Any resistance was swiftly crushed by the invading forces.

But the final prayers of Hethgar were heard. From far across the blackness of space, Angels took heed of their plight.

They would arrive too late for salvation, but vengeance in the Emperor’s name is never overdue…

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is available now for PC on Steam Early Access.
