Another game is being added to the Warhammer franchise, this time in the name of Chaosbane. A fast paced action RPG game in the style of Diablo and Path of Exiles, it promises to be a game that sticks to the lore but gives you the opportunity to create your hero from a choice of four classes and bring terror to the Chaos hordes that threaten the world.
The game will have a solo mode and an online co-op mode for up to four players to hack and slash your way through hordes of enemies to complete your missions and progress your characters. The developers have said that there will be regular updates and plenty of content for you to go through even after you have completed the story and reached max level. Similar to Diablo we will be hoping for that extra content with dungeon runs and high replay-ability, that's what makes a good action RPG and I'm sure the developers of Chaosbane can deliver.
The game has a release date set for 4th June 2019 with two beta phases beginning in March, however this is only accessible to players that have pre-ordered the game. There are three tiers of the pre-order, one which is a standard edition pre-order that comes with exclusive access to the beta, XP boost and a pack of four legendary helmets. The Digital deluxe comes with a gold boost, unique motes, unique pets, the extras aforementioned but with 4 days early game access. The Magnus edition which is the top tier pre-order has everything mentioned already plus a fragment boost and a season pass to top it all off.
The developers released their first images and video of the Dwarf Slayer, they have already introduced the Soldier and Mage to fans but below you can see the Dwarf Slayer in action, one of four playable heroes in the game. The Dwarf Slayer is as you would expect, a stout and fierce warrior that will fight and die in battle as that's the only honourable way to go so make sure you check out the video below.
