40K Developers Criticised Over Dumb Twitch Drops

Complex Games, the developers of the new Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, have issued a statement to frustrated players after running a campaign where certain in-game items were only available to those who sat through some Twitch streams.

Via PC Gamer, while Complex probably thought they were running a fairly standard (by 2022 standards anyway) release window promotional thing, the nature of the items and the fanbase and platform in question weren’t having it. Here’s an example of a negative review left on the game’s Steam page as a result, one of many that presumably prompted the statement:

The Angry Joe stream was actually only 45 minutes, but their point remains. The items weren’t anything fancy or game-breaking. Most of them were just very slight variations on early-game weapons and armour that you’ll move past in a few hours anyway. But it’s the spirit of the move—and it’s mandates on player’s time if they want to try out everything the game has to offer—that has upset people as much as its practical consequences.

As a result, Complex have said that every item offered during the streams will now be given away to free to all players later this month.

If you haven’t even heard of Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters, let alone played it, I’m going to assume it’s because it’s the worst name ever and that the thought of yet another Warhammer game has caused your eyeballs to roll back into your skull.
