Today we have some brand-new footage for the upcoming Warhammer title, Warhammer: Chaosbane. The first hack ‘n’ slash in the Warhammer Fantasy Universe reveals Bragi Axebiter today. This dwarf Slayer has taken the oath of the Slayer, vowing to cleanse his honor by dying in combat against a formidable adversary. This exceptional warrior is always searching for the most powerful enemies so that he can “finally” honor his oath. An expert in hand-to-hand combat, Bragi benefits from a high degree of mobility which allows him to launch into the heart of a melee in order to eliminate a particular target.
The Dwarf’s unique ability revolves around his Axe. Bragi can throw his axe and launch himself at what it gets stuck in, whether it’s a wall or a Nurgling. This is done with the controller’s right joystick, or by holding down the space bar on your keyboard. Then he can rain down blows upon his target before jumping to the next enemy. In cooperative, he’s the perfect character for eliminating a dangerous enemy who’s far from the melee while his teammates take care of the front line.
