Warhammer: Chaosbane Release Date and Special Editions Appear on Xbox Store

By Sam Quirke, 10 days ago
Warhammer: Chaosbane is an upcoming action-RPG for the veteran dark fantasy franchise. While a trailer is expected later in the week according to the official Twitter account, we've picked up pre-order and special edition details from the Xbox Store. It also appears to have revealed the release date for the game: June 6th 2019.

The Magnus Edition appears to be the classiest of the special editions, with a Deluxe pack of additional content as well as the game's Season Pass and a period of early access to the game before its launch date.

The Deluxe Edition just gets the Deluxe pack, which contains a gold boost, a pack of four emotes and four pets for the player's characters.

You can see the full store descriptions below. At the moment most territories do not have a confirmed price for these editions.
