Frontier Foundry and Canadian studio Complex Games have released the final development diary for Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters. The video is dedicated “unique gaming experience” in squad management and combat system.
The final episode of the journal additionally reveals the details of the limb targeting system. The authors describe it as an aggressive melee mechanic that allows players to weaken status effects on opponents and remove limbs to prevent certain attacks.
In addition, with the help of a new trailer, players can learn more about unique upgrades for the squad and stratagems – special physical abilities of fighters that can only be used once per battle. Proper use of stratagems can radically change the course of battle.
Each Gray Knight has access to over 30 abilities that define a fighter’s specialization within a class. The Gray Knights squad is fully customizable, from armor and unique voices to weapons and gear available during missions.
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters for PC is available for pre-order on Steam and the Epic Games Store. The premiere will take place on May 5, 2022.
