If you've been craving another dose of the retro-style FPS Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun, you're in luck.

In line with the first anniversary of the game, Focus Entertainment and Auroch Digital have revealed this title will be getting new DLC titled 'Forges of Corruption'. It will arrive on PlayStation, Xbox and PC on 18th June 2024, with a Switch release to follow at "a later date".

"Explore new environments and stop Chaos corruption before it engulfs the entire world of Graia! Exterminate new enemies, including the monstrous Helbrute, the heavy weapon-wielding Havoc, and the vicious lightning claws of the Terminator. Purge foes with new weapons – burn hordes of heretics with the scorching Multi-melta or blow them away with the Missile Launcher."

As part of this, a new edition of the game for first-time players will be made available - featuring the base game and new DLC.

The development team is also preparing some free updates in the form of a 'Horde Mode' (including four difficulty levels and its own achievements) and a new navigation guide to make levels easier to explore. There will be some bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements in this update, too.
