Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters DLC Duty Eternal Launches December 6

Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters arrived last spring and quickly became a new hit for Games Workshop's many games set in the 41st millennium. From Complex Games and Frontier Foundry, Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is the long-awaited sequel to 1998's Chaos Gate, which brought the Adeptus Astartes into a turn-based strategy game against the forces of Chaos.

Thankfully, fans of Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters won't have to wait long for even more daemons to hunt. Frontier Foundry has just announced new DLC will hit Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters on December 6.

Called Duty Eternal, the DLC adds new missions, a new class of Grey Knight, and the long-request Venerable Dreadnought combat walker. That walker will be available early on in the campaign and will be a playable fifth member of the squad, with customizable weapons loadouts just like the other space marines aboard the Baleful Edict.

The new missions will all center around a new strain of The Bloom called The Technophage, which threatens life in a very different way than the Nurgle-born plague. Technophage missions offer remixed standard maps and objectives with more reinforcements, new Warp Surge conditions, and tougher consequences for failure alongside greater rewards for success.

Assisting in the fight against the Technophage is the new Techmarine class, which can deploy and control Combat Servitors. These Servitors are expendable allies that each have a specific ability to assist the squad. Techmarines can boost Servitor performance or repair the Venerable Dreadnought, making them indispensable allies in the fight against Nurgle.

Along with the Dreadnought, players will also be able to obtain the Gladius Frigate early in the Duty Eternal DLC. This second strike vessel will allow you to send Grey Knights on autonomous missions to locations across the Tyrtaeus Sector to reach Bloom locations that the Baleful Edict can't get to in time. The encounters resolve much like real missions, but entirely without the player's input, offering risks and rewards.

Duty Eternal arrives December 6 on Steam and the Epic Games Store for $14.99.
