About

Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus, the 3D turn-based strategy PC game adaptation of Games Workshop’s classic Titan Legions tabletop game, puts you in control of the greatest weapons available to the Imperium of Man, the mighty Titans of the Adeptus Titanicus!

Coming soon to Steam Early Access, Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus features a Skirmish mode against an AI opponent for single-player and an online multi-player mode. Upon full release, the game will also offer an exciting single-player campaign.

Control a force of Titans
In Dominus, choose to control a force of Titans from the loyalist Legions of Astorum (Warp Runners), Gryphonicus (War Griffons), Crucius (Warmongers) or Osedax (The Cockatrices), or choose from the traitorous Chaos Legions of Mortis (Death Heads), Vulcanum (Dark Fire), Damnosus (Lords of Ruin) and Fureans (Tiger Eyes).


Futuristic warfare
Utilising the tabletop Titan Legions rules system as its foundation, Dominus features an easy-to-play yet deep strategic and tactical experience via its streamlined command system, which sees you and your opponent giving activation orders to your Titans, resulting in fast-paced battles. It successfully marries this strategic play with action sequences as the gargantuan Titans exchange volleys of cannon shots, blistering laser blasts and other epic, super-powered weapons of the far off future!

Easy to play, challenging to master
While luck will play a part as you trade blows with your foe on the futuristic battlefields of the 41st Millennium, your path to victory lies in your army list building and how you manoeuvre your units upon the battlefield. As a commander, you will have access to the most classic, iconic Titan units from the Warhammer 40,000 universe: Warhounds, Reavers and the gigantic Warlord, for both the Imperial and Chaos factions. Each of these Titans will have multiple variants available, featuring different weapon configurations, thereby enabling your Titans to fulfil the battlefield role your strategy demands.

A living battlefield
Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus will feature a "living battlefield" that employs unit and battlefield animations to show players the Warhammer 40,000 universe they know and love.

Updated! AI changes and a new Warhound variant!
19 August - Mark   

Another Warhound variant has been added to Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus, combining a Vulcan Mega-Bolter with the new Turbo Laser Destructor for a mid-tier Scout Titan that packs a decent punch without the pricey points cost of the more powerful variants. The new Warhound TL|VM variant is available for immediate deployment in your single- and multi-player games.

This update also brings a much-needed overhaul of the AI. It selects targets more intelligently, resulting in fewer wasted turns, and it will now use Overwatch. Combined with the new scenarios released in last week's update, we hope veteran Legates will get a fresh challenge.

Update makes Dominus' AI a tougher opponent
26 AUGUST   - MARK

This fortnight's update brings further AI tweaks aimed at improving the challenge it presents to veteran players. There's a lot more work needed on the AI front, but we're happy it's on the right track.

The AI now better prioritises potential targets based on line of sight and proximity. It also makes better, smarter use of Overwatch. From our testing, it uses Overwatch about as frequently as we do, so that's feeling about right.

Thanks to all of you for your feedback, questions and words of encouragement in our Steam Discussion forums as Glenn and I continue the journey of bringing Adeptus Titanicus to your PCs. It's all extremely helpful and very much appreciated.

That's all for now. See you around the Steam Discussion forums!
—Mark & Glenn

Updated! New Warlord Battle Titan variant!
2 SEPTEMBER   - MARK

We have added a new Warlord variant today. This new Warlord variant is packing a Sunfury Plasma Cannon and a Volcano Cannon, supported by twin caracace-mounter Laser Blasters, making it a VERY serious beast on the battlefield.
