Developer Black Lab Games and publisher Slitherine have announced they'll be bringing their turn-based strategy game Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC on 2nd December.
"Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is going to be released on the Windows Store on the same day, on December 2. The same version will be part of the Game Pass, Microsoft’s subscription service for Xbox and Windows."
In an update on Slitherine's official website, the team says it's "immensely excited" About the console release and believes it's maintained the visual fidelity and gameplay pace of the PC version. However, there is one feature that hasn't been implemented on console platforms:
"The only feature that hasn’t been implemented on consoles is the asynchronous (PBEM) multiplayer system. That said, in addition to live multiplayer matches, we feel that the inclusion of hot-seat multiplayer - where two players compete by taking turns to plan and execute their moves on the same console - more than makes up for it. Sitting next to your opponent on the couch as a brutal battle unfolds on the battlefields of the 41st Millennium is a lot of fun!"
Slitherine has also announced some new content for the game, including the new DLCs: Blood Angels Elites and Tyranids Elites. These packs will be released alongside the console versions. There'll also be an exclusive first look at a new faction on 14th December, which will then be launched early on in 2022. You can read more about this game and the latest update over on the publisher's website and Steam.
Below are some screenshots of the Steam version:
