Following September’s gameplay reveal trailer, Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters has unveiled the plague-bearing Death Guard. These are heralds of Nurgle’s foulest poxes and corruption, and one of the main threats players will face throughout the main campaign.

What are the Death Guard to the greater Warhammer universe?

A traitor legion of Chaos Space Marines, the Death Guard embody Nurgle’s influence; Their bodies eternally rot beneath their corroded power armour. They carry all known forms of disease and infestation on a relentless march to spread their Chaos God’s ‘gifts’. Their presence in Nurgle’s plot emphasises the threat facing players. Which the Grey Knights will have to counter if their mission to halt the Bloom’s spread is to be a success.

The Death Guard are a fascinating element of Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunter. Their description is equal parts disturbing and fascinating. I have found as I learn more about this latest Warhammer game, the more I get excited about Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunter.

The showcase below definitely shows off the “unique” attributes of this enemy.

These Enemy Showcases will be deployed weekly via the game’s social media channels across the next four weeks, culminating in the game’s second developer diary as Nurgle’s influence corrupts all it touches.
