ARPG Warhammer: Chaosbane, as its title suggests, is not a tale of soft blankets and warm mugs of spiced milk tea. We can all confirm our suspicions of as much with the new Warhammer: Chaosbane story trailer released by the devs that helps to set its grim scene.
Warhammer: Chaosbane takes place in a time just before the Old World’s Great War against the forces of Chaos, picking up just after the Empire of Man took down the Chaos leader The Everchosen. As one would expect, though, the forces of Chaos aren’t so completely destroyed.
In Warhammer: Chaosbane, up to four players can take up arms either in couch co-op or online play. According to the press release, party synergy will play a significant role in the game, while the Bloodlust mechanic will provide a boost of power to help turn the tide.
The game is due to arrive to PC and consoles at some point in 2019. For now, you can get the general gist of the ARPG’s tone in the video below. If you prefer a more nuts-and-bolts look at the game, be sure to check out their YouTube channel for a developer hands-on piece with the game as it stands now.
The setting of Warhammer certainly lends itself to the explosive horde-smashing gameplay of an ARPG, but we’d like to see if there’s more than a good backdrop to make this ARPG stand out. Then again, sometimes a good setting is all you need if the “classic” ARPG gameplay is nailed down extremely well. In either case, we’ll certainly keep this in our peripheral vision.
