Frontier Foundry has announced Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, a new video game set in Games Workshop’s dark fantasy future. Daemonhunters will release for PC in 2022 via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
Developed by Complex Games, Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is a turn-based tactical RPG in which you lead the Grey Knights in their never-ending fight against the forces of Chaos.
The Grey Knights are an elite Chapter of Space Marines from the Imperium, specially tasked with fighting daemonic entities and those corrupted by the Chaos Gods and acting as the armed military branch of the Inquisition.. Where they differ from other Space Marines is that they are almost all powerful psykers in their own right, the Chapter having been created from the gene-seed of, not a Primarch, but the Emperor himself.
This is the second video game announced in partnership between Frontier and Games Workshop, with the previously announced (and as yet unnamed) Warhammer Age of Sigmar RTS, which is currently expected for release in 2023. Today’s announcement of Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters will be followed with a full cinematic reveal in August. It sounds like it could be a little while before we see a gameplay reveal or much more than that, though.
