Sanctus Reach 1.1.8 Update

Posted: 5 MAR 2018

We are releasing a pretty big update for Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach.


It includes what is a very important change to how melee combat works: all melee units will now inflict morale damage in a radius around them as long as their morale is greater than 50 in Veteran and Grim Darkness difficulty. Furthermore, low morale now reduces a units combat skill.
