Warhammer: Chaosbane Trailer And Story Information

By Dave Bricker, 24 days ago
Warhammer: Chaosbane was recently announced with this trailer featuring some of the work that is going into the game. This week we got another look at some more of the game, including story information.

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.

Warhammer: Chaosbane lets you play in the Old World. The Old World is still marked by the bloody Great War against Chaos. You can play as a human, high elf, wood elf, or a dwarf, and discover places such as the city of Praag, a cursed city, or the city of Nuln, which was the capital of the Empire at the time in which the game is set.

Each class has distinct abilities and gameplay. With either online or offline cooperation with up to four players, synergy and strategy will be essential to fight the hordes of Chaos. One of the powers is bloodlust, a unique devastating power that can alter the battle significantly.

Warhammer: Chaosbane has been announced for Xbox One for launch sometime in 2019, but we know little else other than that.
