It’s that time again, time for Bigben Interactive to reveal more details, and some gory new footage, for Warhammer: Chaosbane. Say hello to the fired up Dwarf Slayer, Bragi Axebiter. This bundle of fury and hot-blooded destruction will join other characters in Warhammer: Chaosbane, up to four in total, in their quest to destroy the forces of Chaos. There’s the Captain of the Empire as well.
This Dwarf Slayer is all about one thing, burying its axe into the nearest enemy. The in-your-face gameplay style of this new class is all about bloodshed, and causing plenty of it. Along with up to four other players in online co-op, the Slayer hacks their way through legions of Chaos spawn, and he’ll be able to do that better than anyone thanks to his unique ability. Wherever this particular badass throws his axe, he can then leap to that point with ease. This allows for some really creative positioning and escapes within the confines of gameplay in the final game.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s a quick refresher on Warhammer: Chaosbane. In Warhammer: Chaosbane, players will be able to play as a human, a high elf, a wood elf, or a dwarf as they travel through and experience various iconic locations known to the Warhammer world, including the cursed city of Praag, Nuln, and the old capital of the Empire. As the game is set in the Old World of the Warhammer Fantasy Battles setting, fans can expect to see a lot of similarities in terms of areas and environments with that geographical location.
Since the game was officially announced as an action-RPG from Eko Software, it’s been steadily pumping out plenty of gameplay footage, much to the joy of Warhammer fans. There’s some more gameplay with the delightfully bloody “Rise of Chaos” trailer. There’s also a “first look” segment with developer commentary that’s worth taking a look at.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on June 4th, 2019. Check out the new gameplay footage of the Dwarf Slayer class down below.
