Having just wrapped up the second Closed Beta set of tests, Bigben and Eko Software are preparing for the launch of Warhammer: Chaosbane on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Over the course of the last Closed Beta weekend, Bigben and Eko Sofware were able to gain even more feedback regarding their upcoming title, an isometric dungeon-crawled that will play rather similar to titles of the genre, namely titles such as Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance, Diablo II, and even Champions of Norrath.
Set deep within the Warhammer Fantasy universe, Warhammer: Chaosbane will see players take on a harrowing story where they will face down unimaginable foes as one of four classes including a Mage, Tank, Archer, and well, Assassin. The High-Elf Mage is just as you would imagine, a powerful caster, wielding the elements in her favor, the Dwar Slayer works to atone for the transgressions of his kind as an assassin of sorts, an Imerial Soldier (the tank) who just wants to crush things with their shield, and a Wood-elf archer.
The second beta included the first three missions of Act 2, which took place in Praag, as well as Act 1, which took place in Nuln. Each one was improved upon, reworked, and enhanced thanks to critical feedback from the first beta phase, which will likely occur with Praag now that it’s second Closed Beta phase has come to a close. The level capped out at 25, giving us hope it goes even higher when the game officially launches in the upcoming weeks.
Along with a deep and well-designed story, Warhammer: Chaosbane fans will be able to partake in their adventures with three other players both locally and online, allowing them to play however the want, and with whoever they want at any given time.
The first action RPG to take place in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world, Warhammer: Chaosbane plunges the player into the heart of the Old World, a continent marked by the Great War against Chaos, a bloody conflict which ravaged the Empire of men. They will embody a human, a high elf, a wood elf, or a dwarf, and discover the iconic locations of the Warhammer Fantasy Battles universe that’s captured the imaginations of millions of fans across the world.
As it is the first of its kind for the Warhammer Fantasy universe, we have high hopes for this one, and it seems that fans do as well thanks to how well designed the game actually is up to this very point.
