by Rainier on Nov. 22, 2022 @ 11:48 a.m. PST

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters is a new turn-based, tactical RPG set in the Warhammer 40K Universe.

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters will pitch humanity’s greatest weapon, the Grey Knights, against the corrupting forces of Chaos in this brutal and fast-paced, turn-based tactical RPG, and root out and purge a galaxy-spanning plague in a cinematic, story-driven campaign, using the tactics and talents of your own personalised squad of Daemonhunters.

Grey Knights are humanity’s greatest weapon. A secretive yet supremely powerful chapter of Space Marines sworn to eradicate corruption, these legendary Daemonhunters are dedicated to combating the minions of Chaos. Lead your own personalised squad against a galaxy-wide plot to infect worlds with a cosmic plague, The Bloom.

Master a turn-based tactical game full of satisfyingly strategic action. Choose powerful classes, wield incredible weapons, use environments to your advantage, and target specific enemy weak points to hinder the advance of an ever-evolving and mutating threat.

This Duty Eternal DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters launches on PC on December 6th, adding thrilling new missions, a brand new class and the fearsome Venerable Dreadnought combat walker to the campaign, among other substantial changes.

The expansion will have a suggested retail price of $14.99/£12.99/€14.99 on both Steam and the Epic Games Store.

The Technophage Outbreak is at the heart of Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters - Duty Eternal. With the arrival of this new strain of the Bloom, the Grey Knights are tasked with aiding the Adeptus Mechanicus in halting its spread across space. The new Technophage Outbreak mission variant is the most challenging in the game to date, remixing standard maps and objectives with higher reinforcement numbers, new Warp Surge conditions and tougher consequences for failure. The potential rewards, however, are also much greater.

Fortunately, commanders will have some extra firepower at their disposal to suppress the escalating Nurgle threat in Duty Eternal. The Venerable Dreadnought – an addition that’s frequently been requested by players since launch – will become available to commanders early in a new campaign. This combat walker becomes a playable fifth member of the Grey Knights squad during any Technophage Outbreak-themed mission that appears across the campaign. Like the other Grey Knights, Dreadnoughts can be customised with different unlockable weaponry to suit the player’s tactical needs.

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters - Duty Eternal also brings a vastly different base class to the game: the Techmarine. This new addition to the Baleful Edict’s barracks is able to deploy and control a cadre of Combat Servitors, which join the Grey Knights on the battlefield as more expendable allies, each equipped with a specific ability that serves a distinct purpose in battle. The Techmarine can repair or augment Combat Servitors and the Venerable Dreadnought during a mission, offering a support role to the rest of the squad.

The new features in Duty Eternal also extend to the game’s strategic layer. Early on in the campaign, players who own this expansion will have the option to liberate and commandeer the Gladius Frigate, a second strike vessel which considerably extends the Grey Knights’ reach across the Tyrtaeus Sector. From aboard the Baleful Edict, commanders will deploy squads onto the Gladius Frigate then send the ship across space, facing the Bloom in locations the Edict cannot reach in time. These encounters will then resolve automatically off-screen with similar risks and rewards to completing a standard mission in the campaign.

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters - Duty Eternal further builds on the ambitions of the team at Complex Games to build the ultimate turn-based tactical RPG set in this universe, significantly enhancing the replayability and scope of the campaign.

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters -Duty Eternal will require the base game to play.
