Grand Master Vardan Kai – Armory Quartermaster

Veteran of hundreds of campaigns, Grand Master Vardan Kaivoiced by Andy Serkiswill advise players in the Gray Knights Citadel on Titan, responding to requests to requisition additional reinforcements, armor, and masterwork weapons to support their campaign.

Andy Serkis commented :

‘Vardan Kai is a Grand Master, he is a very authoritative leader, and he does not suffer fools. He has a strong aversion to those he cannot trust and does not show much emotion, but throughout the game he builds a “master and pupil” relationship with the player. His personality will definitely keep players on their toes.

Summary of gameplay

Players will command the Gray Knights in fast and brutal ground combat missions, using high-precision tactics and environmental destruction to eradicate the forces of Chaos. They must use whatever is at their disposal to purge the Bloom, changing strategy depending on the circumstances. During missions on infected planets, events known as Warp Surges can occur that summon enemy reinforcements, or make opponents even stronger.

The longer players allow a planet to wither under the Bloom’s influence, the more dangerous combat missions become as different “strains” of the plague take hold. Enemies and the environment will mutate over the course of the campaign due to the spread of Bloom, keeping commanders on high alert with unexpected challenges. Players will forge their champions to face the corruption of Nurgle, assembling their team from an array of different classes, each with their own skill trees and battle specializations. With customizable gear, upgrades, and armor, players can build their personalized Battle-Brothers dream team.

The Gray Knights will face off against a wide variety of Nurgle’s minions, from vile plaguebringers to hulking great demons and demon princes. They will eventually meet the ultimate challenge in the Prince of Decay and Primarch of the Death Guard himself: Mortarion. Along the way, players will discover a rich history of Warhammer 40,000 brought to life by the New York Times bestseller Black bookcase author Aaron Dembski-Bowden.
