Back to News Listing Horrors of the Warp - Khorne preview

Posted: Thursday, May 17, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

Type: News

A new day, a new Chaos god to showcase! Today it's the turn of the Lord of Battle himself: Khorne.

 

 

Bloodletters

 

 

The Bloodletters form the core of the vast legions of the Lord of Battle. Believed to have been foremost amongst the Blood God's followers in mortal life, their will is as implacable and blood-hungry as Khorne himself. Festooned with rippling muscles, knotted sinews and driven by an unparallel killing instinct, Bloodletters are fearsome opponents. In Horrors of the Warp they are very tough melee units that can fill an anti-tank role. In fact their Daemonswords can cut through any armor.

 

 

Bloodcrushers

 

 

The Bloodcrushers of Khorne are heavy cavalry from within the Realm of Chaos, massive Juggernauts, ridden into battle by deadly Bloodletters. Beasts of brazen brass and corded muscle, Juggernauts are massively resilient and incredibly strong - their charge powerful enough to smash any battleline in a single earth-shattering stampede. While the mighty Juggernauts trample and gouge at their foes, the Bloodletters whirl about them with their bloody hellblades, claiming ever more skulls for their rage-filled patron Khorne. In gameplay terms they can play havoc behind enemy lines, with the toughness to operate as lone attackers and enough attack power to deal the finishing blow to all but the most elite units.

 

 

Herald of Khorne on Juggernaut

 

The Herald asserts his will over the Juggernaut as a mortal would over a more earthly steed. Such a pairing is far deadlier than the sum of its parts. Should a foe survive the frenzied biting and goring of a Juggernaut, they are likely to be crushed beneath its brass body or cut down by the Jugger's rider. With extremely high combat skill, attack power and maneuverability the Herald of Khorne specializes in assassinating high value targets, he is particularly good against enemy hero units. A powerful unit which specialty is, of course, killing.

 

Lord of Skulls

 

 

This massive Daemon Engine of Khorne is built in hell forges with the sole purpose of killing, maiming and burning its enemies until they are no more than a sticky paste under its mighty tracks. It is a pure infernal force, one which will sweep away any opposition. If you see a Lord of Skulls on the battlefield, you'll need to throw everything you have at it, and then more. And even then it might not be enough.

It carries among the most powerful weapons in the game. Its devastating arsenal begins with the Hades Gatling Cannon, a long range anti tank weapon that is equally good against heavy infantry. Next we have the the Ichor Cannon, an extremely large flame weapon, capable of wiping out an entire army on its own. Finally it has a massive Great Cleaver of Khorne, giving it the most powerful melee attack in the game.

Aggressors Dev Diary #9 - Infrastructure

Friday, August 17, 2018

We have already covered most of the main game mechanics and features yet there is still one big question we want to discuss today. How to build up your empire and what to do in time of peace in Aggressors?
 
It might seem that antiquity was all about wars and conflicts, but people of those times mostly wanted to live in peace and prosperity like anyone else. Emperors might have had great ambitions and pushed the boundaries of their empires still further but at the same time they had to maintain and improve the state infrastructure to keep ahead of other nations.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock - Dev Diary #9 'Evasive Action'

Monday, August 13, 2018

It’s quieter than you’d think. Even in the middle of the worst furball.

“Open racks and engage.”

No one else does what we do, out here in the quiet. One single pressure lock between life and a violent, cold, improbable death.

“Thrusters nominal. RCS is green. I'm good to go.”

Look at those big motherfrakkers. Debris means nothing to them. That armor could take a hundred salvos of heavy ordnance. Frak, on a bad day they’ll spill their tea after taking a nuke on the chin.

“Turkey right four lower three. I'm committing.”

In our world, one stray slug is all it takes.

“Tin can on my tail, take it down take it down!”

The difference between hearing your name whispered one more time, or never again.

“Krypter, krypter, krypter! I’m winged! Krypter, krypt--“

Aggressors Dev Diary #8 - Trade Routes

Friday, August 10, 2018

One of the things which was pretty difficult to implement in Aggressors was the way the game handles resources.

Initially, the number and types of resources were hardcoded in the game's core and the only thing which could be changed (or modded) was the amount required for certain actions.

"The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold, / And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold;

And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea, / When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee." – Lord Byron

Ashurbanipal, Nebuchadnezzar II, Cyrus II ... these great kings are now covered with the dust of time, but the empires they created and the wars they fought shaped the Middle East irreversibly.

Here, in the cradle of civilization, the Assyrians ruled with an iron fist, until the Medes and Babylonians rose against them and ended their reign of terror. The Babylonians then repeated the cruelties of the Assyrians, razing the Temple of Jerusalem and deporting the Hebrews to Babylon.
