It seems like a different developer is behind each new Warhammer game that is released, which have all been met with relatively positive feedback over the years. Behaviour Interactive was the team responsible for Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade in 2016 while Relic Entertainment and Feral Interactive were the teams behind Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. Well, this coming May, Eko Software will be bringing players a new branch in the franchise with Warhammer: Chaosbane.
Chaosbane’s second online beta finished up on April 24, which had addresses necessary bug fixes and other quality of life issues. It also introduced the beta players to a new environment in one of its first “Acts,” added additional languages to the game’s text, more sound effects, and more personal options. For those who have not participated in either of the betas, Warhammer: Chaosbane takes place in the middle of an intense war between Man and the Chaos hordes.
This Warhammer title could surprise some potential players as it’s not an army-strategy game feature, but instead a hack-and-slash! The first of its kind in the Warhammer universe, Chaosbane will tell an all new story with a load of new characters. The action-filled battles will take place in sewers, ravaged streets, and a host of different environments where the monster hordes will be waiting. Players will have over 180 unique magical powers at their disposal across four character classes. These classes will be: the tanky soldier of the Empire of Man who can take heavy damage, the melee focused Dwarf, the Wood Elf that lures enemies into traps while using a bow, and the High Elf who specializes in ranged attacks.
Eko Software boast about the high replay value because of the abundance of upcoming content in story mode, a boss mode, dungeons, and regular updates that span across 10 levels of difficulty. Players will be able to play alone or with up to 4 local or online players, which can make for devastating combinations of attacks. And teaming up may be the best option as they’ll have to face over 70 different types of monsters that serve the Chaos Gods.
Warhammer: Chaosbane’s standard game releases for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 4. But diehard fans can get ahold of the game on May 31 with the Digital Deluxe or Magnus Editions.
