Warhammer: Chaosbane is an upcoming hack ‘n’ slash Warhammer title, where players dive deep into the Old World, at the heart of the Great War against Chaos. Each class in the game will have unique skills and playstyles, and whether players cooperate online or locally, synergy and teamwork will be key to wiping out the Chaos threat and saving the Empire of Man. Chaosbane is also the first ARPG to take place in Warhammer Fantasy, players will embody either a human, high elf, wood elf, or a dwarf, and discover several iconic locations such as the cursed city of Praag, or the city of Nuln, which was the capital of the Empire at the time in which the Chaosbane story is set. No release date was given but is scheduled out in 2019 for consoles and PC.
“Long before the reign of our glorious Karl Franz, the bloodthirsty tribes of the North united and invaded the Empire of Man. The Great War Against Chaos raged on, up until Magnus the Pious rallied the citizens of Nuln, resisted the enemy and defeated the Chaos leader, known as ‘The Everchosen’, scattering the invaders in the process. But the forces of Chaos have crawled back from the shadows to strike at the Empire. Unless something is done, the Empire of Man will again descend into darkness and turmoil.”
