So we’ve seen a fair bit of the ongoing development of Warhammer: Chaosbane over the last few months. Eko Software and Bigben Interactive have been steadily prepping the Warhammer Fantasy ARPG for it’s big release, and fans of both the source material and the genre are excited. We got to see some of the class choices, there was talk of a deeper story and the struggle against Chaos, and even some cool pre-order bonuses, and now we get to see the real meat and potatoes of this new dish of a title.
Part of these offerings is of course the end-game mode and post-launch DLC. And as is the big draw with any action RPG, the level of replayability and variety is a huge part of the sell for Warhammer: Chaosbane. With the newest trailer that just dropped for the game, we get to see these aspects up close and personal.

The biggets new additions planned are a new tier of difficulty and end-game gear, as well as a permadeath mode and more character levels. To go along with the increased power of characters, Eko is putting in more challenging maps too. Eko software also plans to implement a sort of Magic Finding gear element with other releases. All of this and more will be bundled into the Season Pass, or released as a free update.
The game is due to launch on June 4th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Those who grab a copy of the Magnus or Digital Deluxe editions of Warhammer: Chaosbane can get it a few days early on May 31st.
