Back to News Listing Horrors of the Warp - Khorne preview

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 Testers Diary - Modding

Friday, June 15, 2018

As a young player I was always browsing game files trying to find a way to change them. It was partially curiosity and partially a wish to modify the rules to my own liking, because no matter how great a game is, there is always something you want to tweak or adjust.

The option of modding was part of the game design from the very beginning as I wanted to give the players the opportunity to create the Aggressors realm with me in an easy and user-friendly way. Over time, the idea was brought even further – I decided to create a framework for strategy games of different worlds and historical eras.

Monday, June 11, 2018

June, 1944. Europe has been under the Nazi heel for 4 long years. Even if the Eastern Front is crumbling and the Red Army counterattacks are in full swing, the German Armed Forces are still a formidable opponent and are making very costly every inch of ground conquered.

Only a breach into the Festung Europa and the creation of a second front could ensure the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.

Aggressors Dev Diary 3 - Diplomacy

Friday, June 8, 2018

Diplomacy makes strategy games feel alive. No matter how many barbarian hordes invade your borders nor how cunning their attacks are, without a leader who you can talk with to negotiate a potential ceasefire the enemy simply does not feel real.

We wanted to make Aggressors feel realistic, so we tried to bring some "life" into diplomacy. Interactions with an AI cannot replace the nuances of a communication between two human players, but if you give the AI a number of tools that it can use whilst following its own goals then the interaction suddenly feels much more real.
