Back to News Listing Horrors of the Warp - Slaanesh preview

Posted: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 by Alberto Casulini

Type: News

First off, just to remind you of what is coming, let's say it loud: Chaos Daemons are pouring in the Sanctus Reach system and it will happen in two days, on May 24th!

Yes, that's right: only two days to the release of Horrors of the Warp!

In Horrors of the Warp you will play throughout a new single player campaign facing a terrible new threat: the creatures of the warp themselves, Chaos Daemons.

 

We have been showing off the new units in a series of diaries, every time focussing on a different Chaos god. Today it's the turn of the Dark Prince, the Lord of Excess: Slaanesh.

 

 

Daemonettes

 

 

The footsoldiers of the Prince of Pleasure, possessed of the hypnotic glamour for which all Daemons of Slaanesh are abhorred, they are vicious, merciless fighters who attack with astounding speed and grace. In Horrors of the Warp they are fragile units and will go down fast, but that doesn't mean you should underestimate them. as they have three attacks and a high combat skill. They can be very nasty glass cannons. Word of advice: use AoE attacks to eliminate entire groups of them or you're in for a world of pain.

 

 

Seekers of Slaanesh

 

 

The Seekers of Slaanesh are the outriders of the daemonic hosts, Daemonettes who ride upon swift and deadly Steeds. Seekers can cover vast distances at unbelievable speeds. The Steeds are lithe, unsettling creatures with muscular limbs and long, terribly poisonous tongues - it is said a single caress from a Steed's tongue is enough to drive a man into a deathly rapture. The Daemonettes are no less deadly, with lethal claws to slash and slice at their foes. They are perfect flanking units to cover large distances and close in on enemy heavy weapons. Use them to hit where it hurts!

 

 

Fiend of Slaanesh

 

 

The Fiend of Slaanesh is a bizarre daemon, a hybrid creature that combines reptilian, insectoid and anthropomorphic characteristics. Fiends are incredibly swift creatures, able to skitter and skuttle across all manner of terrain at frightening speed. Though a Fiend is somewhat frailer than other Daemons, only a fool would underestimate its combat prowess. In gameplay terms this horrific daemon disrupts its enemies, it can stun an adjacent enemy for a turn, slows all units around it, remove actions or even lower their morale. A highly dangerous higher daemon with many possible uses. Don't underestimate it...

 

We will be back tomorrow for the last Chaos God, Nurgle, as well as the undivided Chaos units.

Command: Desert Storm - Trailer and Release Date

On August 2, 1990, Iraq’s ground forces invaded and occupied Kuwait. 40% of the world’s oil production, and the developed world’s economy, was placed in imminent threat by Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. In response, the United States promptly assembled an international coalition to attack and expel Iraqi forces out of Kuwait, and to eliminate Hussein’s capability to repeat such an act in the future. What followed would forever transform the face of war.

Field of Glory: Empires Dev Diary #6 - Culture and Decadence

Monday, March 18, 2019

One key feature in Empires is how it deals with the progress and decline of nations. This impacts how your empire will evolve in a major way and is a focal point for gameplay.

Practically, these mechanics first act as a limit on simply conquering as fast as possible as it is hard to assimilate your new gains without increasing your decadence. Thus your quickly acquired Empire might be impressive but will probably prove to be ephemeral. The new territories will be unruly, and in turn this can cause large issues for your government and ruler. However, decadence is not just a problem for the over-ambitious conqueror, it will affect almost every nation over time, no matter how grand, making long term stability a real challenge. Once you pass into relative decline, citizen loyalty will drop, civil wars and revolts will become more common making the risk of major collapse very real.
