Warhammer Chaos Gate Demon Hunters

Did you love the 1998 turn-based classic Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate? Have you been yearning for a followup? You're in luck. Frontier and Complex Games are working on just such a game. Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters is coming next year.

What do we know about Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters?

According to a press release, Daemonhunters will follow in the footsteps of its predecessor as a strategic turn-based tactical game. It'll feature a full story-driven campaign in which you must lead a squad of Grey Knights, the secretive chapter of the Space Marines sworn to battle the Chaos Gods. Your Grey Knight squad will battle a galaxy-wide conspiracy to infect numerous worlds with the cosmic plague known as the Bloom. The story will be written by Horus Heresy novelist Aaron Dembski-Bowden, with the devs promising a compelling narrative set in the "grimdark universe" of Warhammer 40k.

Gameplay-wise, Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters will allow you to choose from a series of powerful character classes and weapon types, including the iconic Nemesis Force halberd and the Storm Bolter. You'll be able to use the environment around you to your advantage when battling your enemies, but you'll have to play smart, because the enemy will exploit mistakes ruthlessly. We'll doubtless learn more about the gameplay for Daemonhunters in the coming weeks and months.

When is the Daemonhunters release date?

Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters will be releasing in 2022. Beyond that, Frontier and developer Complex Games say they'll reveal more about Warhammer 40k: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters in August this year, so you don't have too long to wait for more info. In the meantime, you can wishlist the game on Steam. If you've got a hankering for some classic old-school Warhammer 40k tactics action, then you can grab the original Chaos Gate from GOG if you like. If you love Warhammer and turn-based tactics, it'll be a match made in heaven for you.
