Today Complex Games and Frontier Foundry officially announced the next DLC for their grimdark turn-based strategy game Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters.

The new DLC, which is titled "Execution Force," has been teased for the past few days, and as we expected, it features the four canonic types of assassins from the Officio Assassinorum (Vindicare, Callidus, Eversor, and Culexus) as playable units. 

The DLC also features boarding actions that finally lets you hunt down and board Death Guard cruisers, and new equipment for your Grey Knights, on top of new threats to fight.

Below you can watch the trailer before the DLC releases (alongside a free patch) on July 25. 

You can check out an official description of the content of the DLC below.

New Playable Units - Imperial Assassins

Command four brand-new playable units from the Officio Assassinorum.

Harness unique skills and unleash devastation using agents of the Vindicare, Eversor, Culexus, and Callidus Temples. These fearsome operatives bring unparalleled skills and abilities to the battlefield once requisitioned through progressing a timeline event in the main campaign. 

A New Threat Emerges

Encounter new challenges, formidable foes, and experience new threats as you take up arms for the Imperium and destroy dangerous new Tentarus Hives which have festered across the galaxy. 

Brace yourself for intense battles and harrowing encounters as you confront this insidious threat head-on. Prepare to uncover the dark secrets behind the Tentarus Bloom and protect the galaxy from its vile clutches as you explore five new maps that bring the eerie atmosphere of this hive to life. 

Boarding Action Missions

Brace yourself for intense battles within the bowels of chaos-infested cruisers. Engage Death Guard in thrilling Boarding Actions and wage war in the close-quarters chaos of their twisted vessels.

All Death Guard Cruiser encounters now have the option to engage in onboard combat directly. Fight back against Nurgle’s grasp across the Tyrtaeus sector by hunting down their ships, dispatching your squad to disable power generators and reaping the rewards.  

New Equipment

Gear up for battle with brand-new weapons and armour for your Grey Knights. Prepare to dominate the battlefield with cutting-edge gear that will turn the tide of war in your favour.

Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is currently available exclusively for PC. Recently, Frontier Developments acquired its developer, Complex Games
