As the 40K fellowship are known to say, « you’ll have my hammer » and also my hammer and that hammer and anything vaguely hammer-shaped hidden in the kitchen cabinet. That’s right, Games Workshop hosted their yearly Warhammering announcement event and there was an entire hammer parade. They announced upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, the final DLC for Total War: Warhammer 2, a closed beta for Blood Bowl 3, and a whole hammerful of other things.
First up are those new Daemonhunters coming next year that’s being developed by Complex Games and published by Frontier Foundry. You can take a gander at the quick teaser trailer here showing off the Grey Knights in their shiny mech armor.
Here’s the background that Game Workshop give on the Knights:
« Armoured in faith and shielded by devotion, the Grey Knights’ very existence is rooted in mystery: the possession of any unsanctioned knowledge about their secretive brotherhood is punishable by death. In Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, players will experience the ruthless, merciless combat of the 41st millennium. »
Games Workshop say they’re planning a « full cinematic announcement » for Daemonhunters coming this August, with launch planned for sometime in 2022.
Total Warhammering got some news as well. Total War: Warhammer 2 announced its final DLC « The Silence & The Fury », a lords pack that will add a new legendary lord for both the Beastmen and Lizardmen. Totalwarhammering 3 also talked lord ledgends with a look at one such big baddie for Khorne’s faction called Skarbrand. Nate’s already dug in a bit with his thoughts on what we’ve seen of Total Warhammer 3’s faction roster so far.
