Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus was delisted on Steam on January 30th, 2022. On the same day developer The Magos confirmed on January 30th that the studio’s license of the Warhammer property had expired. On March 3rd, 2022 a GOG.com forum post stated that developer/publisher Membraine Studios had ceased operations and that Dominus would be removed from sale there on March 31st at 1pm UTC.
Many smaller Warhammer titles remain on the market for at least a few years before their licenses expire but Dominus was only available for barely one year. It is possible that the license was not renewed with Games Workshop as Membraine Studios was preparing to cease operation.
About the Game
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!
Adeptus Titanicus: Dominus features an exciting single-player campaign story that plays out over 18 missions, single-player Skirmish and Scenarios modes against an AI opponent, and an online Multi-Player mode.
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).
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.
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.
