The planet Vigilus is positioned in the Imperium Nihilus, near the Eye of Terror in a dark region of space. Always a critical location, the opening of the Great Rift escalated the importance of Vigilus exponentially — as it serves as a key connection point between two halves of the Imperium. Thus it has come to pass that the forces of the Ultramarines, Orks, Chaos Space Marines, Aeldari Craftworlds, and Genestealer Cults have converged upon Vigilus and all-out war has erupted on the planet. Side with one of these five formidable factions, and deploy all of your might and strategy to obliterate your opponents in a battle for total domination. Complete objectives, collect rewards and conquer enemy territories for ultimate glory. The fate of this distant world is worth a thousand others. If it falls, if the Nachmund Gauntlet collapses, the Imperium Nihilus is all but lost to us. The empire of Terra will soon follow.
