Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters, the Gray Knights tactical RPG from Canadian studio Complex Games and publishing label Frontier Foundry, was released today. Daemonhunters has continued to be heavily promoted with feature showcases, developer diaries, previews and livestreams over the past few months. Despite or maybe because of this, the game has been the subject of much skepticism on our forums. The mainstream press sure seems to love it, though. But before we get into that, here's the launch trailer:

As stated, reviews of Daemonhunters have been very positive, praising the game for its breadth of its mechanics and presentation, with only a slight touch of repetition and jank. Here's the usual round-up:

CGMagazine 7.5/10

NME 4/5
PC Gamer 87/100
PCGamesN 8/10
Rock Paper Shotgun
TheGamer 4/5
TheSixthAxis 8/10
Wccftech 8/10
I dare say that between this game and King Arthur: Knight's Tale, we might be in the midst of an unexpected golden month for tactical RPGs. If you'd like to find out for yourself, Daemonhunters is available on Steam now for $45.
