Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is one of this year’s best under-the-radar strategy games and now Canadian developer Complex Games is preparing to launch its first major chunk of DLC, entitled “Duty Eternal.” This update looks pretty meaty, as it adds the ability to customize and command your own Dreadnought mech, an escort fighter ship to make the strategic aspect of the game more manageable, the new Techmarine class, and more. You can check out a trailer for the Duty Eternal update, below.

Dispatch the Gladius Frigate

  • Pursue Nurgle’s forces across the Tyrtaeus Sector with the Gladius Frigate.

In addition to the paid Duty Eternal DLC (price yet to be revealed), Daemonhunters will also be getting a free update. Here’s what’s included in that

New Enemy Types

  • Anti-Armour - Plague Marine: Posing an unwavering threat to even the most heavily armoured Grey Knights, this Plague Marine variant is equipped with armour-sundering arsenal, wielding a Meltagun and Krak Grenades.
  • Fleshmower - Foetid Bloat-drone: New Foetid Bloat-drone variants come armed with a Fleshmower, capable of projecting punishing attacks through the land, and unforgivingly any Grey Knights who dare stand before them.
  • The Noxious Blightbringer: Living conduits for the Garden of Nurgle, The Noxious Blightbringers render their rivals feeble as they strip away armor bonuses, effectively nullifying Aegis Shield, Fortress and other defensive Grey Knights abilities.
  • Other improvements: Alongside these Death Guard reinforcements, will also be a number of performance improvements and optimizations.

Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters can be played on PC. The Duty Eternal DLC and free update launch on December 6.
