If you like strategy games, you will not forget this week very soon! From this evening, 6:00 pm UK time, it's Midweek Madness on Steam for almost all Slitherine full catalogue: tons of strategy, tactical, historical, sci-fi games will be on sale. But make hay while the sun shines: the sale will last only few days, so check out the games you want soon before the prices rise again!

Some of the games on sale will be:

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius (34% off, the greatest discount ever on Gladius!) is the first 4X grand strategy game set in the grim dark universe of the 41st millenium. Strive for planetary domination and fight against the locals as well as against the other factions: Imperial Guard, Space Marines, Orks, and Necrons. Expand your economy, build a mighty war machine and destroy your enemies, also with the newly released DLC with the Tyranids faction. Praise the Emperor - or fight his puppets!

Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach (67% off) it’s the tactical game that truly captures the experience of the beloved tabletop game: lead a chapter of Space Wolves space marines in their campaign against the vile Orks as they try to recapture the planet of Alaric Prime through a series of 3D turn-based tactical battles. Additonal factions are also available as DLCs, including the Imperial Guard and Chaos Daemons, each unique and different.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock (60% off) is set in the Battlestar Galactica universe. As a prequel of the TV show, you'll lead the Colonial Fleet during the First Cylon War through deeply tactical and exciting 3D space battles. It is one of the most unique space strategy games out there, due to its original simultaneous turn-based system. Deadlock has been constantly improved and expanded since its release, with many free updates adding content and new features as well as its expansions: the Broken Alliance, Anabasis and the Reinforcement Pack.

Order of Battle: World War II lets you play almost *every* theater of World War 2, and you can play for free! Yes, the base game is free, and if you like it you can buy and play all its DLC set in various scenarios of WW2, turning Order of Battle in a huge strategy game. Perhaps you would like to take part in the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, or maybe you’d rather lead the U.S. Marines in their island-hopping campaign in the Pacific; you could even choose more unconventional conflicts, such as Finland’s Winter War or the final battle for Berlin, where you can change history. The choice is yours!

Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations (67% off) places you on the Admiral seat: surface fleets, submarine squadrons, air wings, land-based batteries and even satellites are under your command – from the lowliest pirate skiff to the mightiest aircraft carrier. You are given the hardware, but you must use it well. Although released in 2014, Command MANO price is still normally high: if you want to relive the intense fleet clashes of glorious past games like Harpoon, the Midweek madness is the perfect way to save some money, but get it before that ship has sailed! Additional DLCs let you play in hot real world situations, like South America crisis, European collapse for Brexit going very badly, or Japan and Russia at war for the Kuril islands.

Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe – World at War (50% off) is a deeply immersive turn-based strategy game covering the greatest conflict in modern history. Take control over either the Axis or the Allies, while directing the efforts of each nation in your alliance. War in Europe focuses entirely on the Western Front, while World at War expands the setting encompassing the whole globe. Through careful management of your resources, judicious research choices, wise strategic choices and brilliant deployment of your military plan, competing against one of the most advanced AIs ever made.

Field of Glory II (60%) is a turn-based tactical game set during the Rise of Rome from 280 BC to 25 BC. Play like a tabletop wargame, thanks to the 3D miniature-style units. With 75 Army Lists and 48 factions available, you can play custom or historical battles or taking the lead of any nations using the sand-box campaign system. Four DLCs are currently expanding backward or forward in time, adding dozens of new units, factions and scenarios.
