Given the date, I see now I missed a solid opportunity to theme my NewPlay, but what can you do?
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters (CGD, OK?) is the first cab off the rank for this month's Humble Choice, and is the latest... (checks notes)... *turn-based* 40K *PC* game.
I honestly thought it was the latest 40K game, but I checked, and there have been FOUR 40K games released since this, with two new ones later this year.
Embarrassingly, I've tried multiple 40K games, & failed to connect in any genre. I went into last night's stream, not sure which which genre CGD was, and it's a turn-based tactics game.
CGD is both visually & aurally gorgeous, and was I not pretty much trashed, I could have gone on playing for another hour or two.
However, it feels very lore-dense, with some assumed knowledge, which might be off-putting if someone was buying it cold, without any 40K knowledge.
A few weeks ago it dropped to a historical low, and I was tempted, but decided against it, which meant that for once, Humble Choice paid for itself.
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate - Daemonhunters is a really long name, but it's:
So far (a handful of missions in), it's been a very nice #XCom/#XCom2-like game. Story, atmosphere, production and music are all great. Given that I'm not familiar with the #Warhammer universe I'm sure to miss a lot of subtleties, though. :D
For now, the skill trees of the soldiers (knights) are still a bit much to take in every level-up. (1/2)
Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters to jedna z lepszych gier, w które grałem w tym roku. Teraz miałem okazję pograć DLC Duty Eternal.
Jakie zmiany, poza wydłużeniem tytułu do wręcz absurdalnych długości, wprowadza i czy warto go kupić? Przeczytajcie sami!
