There were numerous video game announcements during Games Workshop's Warhammer Skulls event today. Among them was the announcement of a new game called Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters, a rare Warhammer 40,000 video game to be unambiguously described as a turn-based tactical RPG. As you might guess by the name, the protagonists of the new Chaos Gate (which doesn't appear to have anything to do with the 1998 original) are the Grey Knights, the secretive Inquisition-affiliated daemon hunting Space Marine chapter. The game is being developed by a little-known Canadian studio called Complex Games with a history of making Warhammer 40,000 mobile titles and published by David Braben's Frontier Foundry label. There's not much else to say about it for now, since all that's been released is this brief cinematic teaser (which will be followed in August by a longer cinematic trailer).
Cambridge, UK – 3 June 2021. Frontier Foundry, the games label of Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV, ‘Frontier’), today announced Warhammer 40,000®: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters, a new game in partnership with world-renowned Warhammer 40,000 creator Games Workshop®.
Developed by Complex Games, Canada, 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.
Armoured in faith and shielded by devotion, the Grey Knights’ very existence is rooted in mystery: the possession of any unsanctioned knowledge about their secretive brotherhood is punishable by death. In Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters, players will experience the ruthless, merciless combat of the 41st millennium, following the journey of these elite warriors in a narrative penned by acclaimed New York Times bestselling author, Aaron Dembski-Bowden.
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters will release on PC in 2022 on Steam and the Epic Games Store, published by Frontier Foundry. This exciting new title will build on Frontier’s existing partnership with Games Workshop®: Frontier have previously announced their Warhammer® Age of Sigmar® RTS title, which is currently in development.
The full cinematic announcement of Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters is planned for August 2021. Follow the game on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. Visit the Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters official website at www.chaosgate.com.
