Developers Complex Games and Frontier Developments announced earlier this week that the developer’s acclaimed turn-based tactics title ‘Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters’ will launch across PlayStation and Xbox consoles on the 20th of February. Players can pre-order the game from today to receive a 15% discount on the suggested retail price of £34.99 / $44.99 / €44.99 in addition to the ‘Relics of Titan’ – two unique in-game items which will lend aid against the initial outbreak of the Bloom.

Per the press release:

In Warhammer 40,000®: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, players will take command of humanity’s greatest weapon, the Grey Knights, as they clash with the corrupting forces of Chaos in a brutal and fast-paced turn-based tactical crusade. Experience an epic narrative penned by New York Times bestselling author Aaron Dembski-Bowden, filled with valor, glory and sacrifice, and brought to life by an outstanding cast including the vocal talents of Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, The Batman) and Robyn Addison (Final Fantasy XIV, Dragon Age: Inquisition). 

From their mobile base of operations, the Baleful Edict, Force Commanders will be required to make difficult choices on the survival of individual worlds in their efforts to contain The Bloom, Nurgle’s plague which is spreading across the Tyrtaeus system. Making vital repairs and upgrading their cruiser will prove crucial in responding to the growing threat. Meanwhile the unexpected arrival of an Inquisitor brings her own agenda and research, yielding new options to understand and counter the Bloom’s spread. 

On the battlefield, players will customize and command their unique squad of Grey Knights in brutal turn-based combat, executing orders with absolute certainty of the outcome. With an array of specialist and advanced classes, commanders can overwhelm their foes by using the environment to collapse cathedral pillars and detonate plasma batteries, or cleave the enemy’s limbs from their bodies to remove their abilities before opening up stunning cinematic executions. 

As the Grey Knights clash with Nurgle’s foul pox walkers and legions of Death Guard, the Bloom amplifies each foe’s abilities based on the strain of Bloom present on the planet. As powerful psykers, the Grey Knights can utilize psychic abilities to change the course of battle, however each use increases the chance of a Warp Surge event, bringing unexpected consequences and greater challenge to each encounter. 

Force Commanders can bolster their armory with the Purifier Edition, which grants players the opportunity to recruit the legendary Castellan Garran Crowe to their ranks partway through the campaign. This powerful Grey Knights champion is entrusted with the Black Blade of Antwyr, a weapon of untold power, and can be used in place of a squad member to lead their forces into battle.
