Space Marine boomer shooter Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun is getting a DLC on June 18, 2024: Forces of Corruption will add a variety of new environments, enemies, and weapons to the title. Foes like the Helbrute, the Havoc, and the Terminator befoul the world of Graia with their Chaos aura, but luckily you’re getting some fresh toys to purge them, such as the missile launcher and the Multi-Melta – if the Sisters of Battle trust this one, so can you.

Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun – Forces of Corruption will be available on June 18, 2024, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch as a separate DLC or as part of the new Forces of Corruption Edition, which contains the base game and the expansion.

That’s not everything coming to Boltgun, though – a free horde mode will be added for all players on the same day as the expansion arrives. It will have four difficulty levels and come with its own set of achievements to earn. This update will also include a whole bunch of improvements and fixes as well as a navigation guide feature to help every Ultramarine through the game’s levels.
