Do you remember Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate? Games Workshop does, and now they’re putting out a sequel next year, Chaos Gate: Daemonhunters.
Back in the halcyon days of 1998, Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate pit the Ultramarines against the traitor marines of the Word Bearers in an epic, turn based conflict that built tension and was packed with tactical scenarios. It’s a much beloved game that blended the tactical play of X-COM UFO Defense, released four years prior, with the grim darkness of the distant future and an experience system that grew out of the Soldiers at War engine.
Fans of tactical gameplay are getting a treat next year after a brand new teaser trailer reveals a sequel, Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters in the works. This updates the turn-based classic for the modern age with a story written by ADB himself.
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, a turn-based tactics game and long awaited sequel to 1998’s Chaos Gate – puts players in command of a squad of elite Grey Knights on a quest to rid the galaxy of Chaos.
