You can play up to the end of the campaign, which is long enough and entertaining enough to be worth the £20. Don't expect the best hack'n slash game ever, but it's fun enough for a couple of playthrough to try out different builds. I've never been much into the endless treadmilling of Diablo and its ilk, so I can't comment on how it holds up once you really get into the high level, nightmare-like difficulty part of the game.So it has no end game basically.
£55 on Steam for the complete edition. £34 for the entry level game.
Are you sure this is a good idea? It's been a while, so I might misremember the details... but I 'member that the Tech Adept actually "skips" the first campaign.
Wheras the original classes get the first campaign PLUS the second campaign.
Original classes -> first campaign + second campaign (miss the intro chapter of tech adept)
Tech Adept -> intro chapter + second campaign (miss the first campaign)
This setup is one of the more obscure things they did with this game. Anyways.
In my opinion (and if the above is correct), if you really plan to play only one character, then go for one of the original classes because they get the more complete content.
Not that i expected anything different, but i'm amazed how all Warhammer media i tried so far, be it books, games or what have you all get the atmosphere of the setting wrong.
that's the specific mechanic for the psyker ( Warp Heat mechanic). You can find more information in the tutorial section. In short each time you use a psychic power, you accumulate heat; once it goes over a threshold, there's a chance of bad shit happening, like the blue spiral;So i rolled a Psyker, pressed some skills at random and now i have a blue spiral shit following me around trying to kill me. The shit is that?
