Also included are three new Altar of War Missions to try out, and three new Echoes of War missions that let you re-enact pivotal events and battles from Warhammer 40,000 history.When it comes to Cypher, nothing is definitive - but this Dataslate captures the most details thus far.
The individual known as Cypher is one of the greatest mysteries in the war-torn future. His motives and methods are inscrutable. The few who even know of his existence are unsure if he is Mankind's bitterest enemy, or a lost pilgrim seeking atonement. Cypher is a being wrapped in shadow, an entity whose every move is cloaked in mystery. The Dark Angels have sought out Cypher since the fall of Caliban - their old homeworld. Rumours and legends about Cypher follow wherever he appears - and that can be anywhere across the galaxy. He has been sighted in each of the Imperium's five segmentum, materialising as if from nowhere. Wherever he surfaces, he brings with him death and destruction, although whether he is the culprit or merely a herald of woe is often unclear. And wherever Cypher turns up, more of the mysterious Fallen Dark Angels are sure to follow.
