Warhammer: Chaosbane, the Warhammer franchise’s class-based Diablo-esque crawler, has been given a June 4 launch date for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. The game will also see two closed betas sometime in March and April.
Those betas are, of course, open only to those who preorder the $59.99 game. Warhammer: Chaosbane is a drop-in cooperative (up to four players) hack-and-slash set in the Warhammer world.
Players will take control of a human, high elf, wood elf or dwarf in the game, somewhat similar to last year’s Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor for PC. Each class has a combat role and a skillset serving it. Players will also use “bloodlust,” described as “a unique mechanic which lets loose a devastating power that can change the outcome of a battle.”
These two videos from December and January, and the gallery of screenshots above, give a better idea of what to expect from Warhammer: Chaosbane, which is developed by Warhammer creator Games Workshop and published by Bigben Interactive.
