Complex games, developers of the new Warhammer 40,000: Gates of Chaos – Demon Huntersthey issued a statement apologizing to players after launching a campaign in which certain items in the game were only available to those who listened to some Twitch streams.

Over it PC playerwhile Complex probably thought they had launched fairly standard (by 2022 standards) promotional content for edition windows, the nature of the items and the respective fan base / platform did not have them. here example a negative review left on the game’s Steam page as a result, one of many that probably prompted the statement:

The game would have gotten a thumbs up had it not been for one thing. For some ridiculous reason, the developers decided to put 11 items in the game (not leather or cosmetics, but real weapons and armor) behind the jerky drops on the day of the release. To get these items, not only do you have to create and link a Frontier account and a Twitch account, but you have to watch hours and hours of pointless chattering streamers instead of actually playing the game you paid for. They are also timed so if you miss them, you miss them forever.

If there was another way to earn these games, it wouldn’t be a big deal, but I won’t watch ry Angry Joe 2 hours just to get a weapon.

The Angry Joe stream actually only lasted 45 minutes, but their point remains. The items were nothing fancy or smashing the game, most of them were just small variations of weapons and armor from the early game that you’ll be through in a few hours anyway, but that’s the spirit of the move — and it’s time for players to try everything the game has to offer. – it upset people as much as its practical consequences.

As a result, The complex said that every item offered during streams will now be distributed free of charge to all players later this month.

Commanders of the Ave Imperator Forces,

We are glad to see so many of you enjoying Warhammer 40000 Chaos Gate: Daemonhunters. While we’re glad to see you enjoying the game, we’re also listening to your feedback.

One of the areas we noted was the frustration around the various Twitch drop campaigns we ran around launching the game. Although the sole goal of these campaigns was to raise awareness, we understand that many feel that locked items in the game are far from them.

That was certainly not our intention and we appreciate you sharing your opinion on it. Therefore, we will make all items from each Twitch drop campaign available to players through one of our planned updates in May. We’ll confirm which update and the exact date this will end.

We hope this will resolve your frustrations and that you can continue to destroy the forces of chaos with these items in your armory.

If you haven’t heard of Warhammer 40,000: Gates of Chaos – Demon Hunterslet alone played it, I’ll assume it’s because it’s the worst name ever and to think of another Warhammer the game caused your eyeballs to roll back into your skull.

The thing is, this is a game really good, and strong XCOMso for anyone who has covered it up, but is now preparing to repeat this discovery, I will share some impressions about it later in the week.
