Learn more about the gameplay and antagonists of Warhammer 40000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters.
Frontier Foundry, in conjunction with Complex Games and Games Workshop, has released the second dev diary for Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, the next Warhammer universe game. The development team discusses more about the gameplay and the backstory around the adversaries in the game.
Meet the Forces of Nurgle
Complex Games’ creative director Noah Decter-Jackson and lead designer Peter Schnabl are back in this new developer diary. They are joined by senior programmer David Reimer, who has introduced us to the game’s opponents. The first developer diary was released last month.
In the second of a three-part video series, “Episode 2 – Seeding the Bloom,” the Bloom and how it mutates are discussed. Nurgle’s armies are thoroughly explained, pushing players to adapt their strategy during the game. When a planet is contaminated, the unpredictability of warp waves might occur during missions, bringing enemy reinforcements or enhancing their powers.
Bloom itself evolves during the campaign, with a number of “strains” that enhance the risk of combat missions the longer the epidemic is allowed to infect a planet.
To round up this extensive dev diary 2, the devs introduce us to a familiar character as the driving force behind the Bloom, Mortarion, Prince of Decay and Primarch of the Death Watch. Aside from the Pale King, the Complex Games team previews the distinct challenges given by each of the game’s boss confrontations.
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters will be available on PC through Steam and Epic Games Store in 2022.
