The upcoming Action RPG Warhammer Chaos Bane, in development by Maximum Games is now available for Preorder on the Xbox One store and on 2/8/19 will be up and available on the PSN Store. Its release date is set for June 4th 2019 as well. Additionally its Steam Page has been around for a while with some trailers and screenshots if you are curious. Price seems to be $59.99 at the moment.
From what I know, Warhammer Chaos Bane is an upcoming Action RPG set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe, featuring a full campaign mode and Coop support. This is going to be the first hack and slash game really set in the WHFB universe, which alone has me interested. I have always wanted to play a more story driven game in the Warhammer fantasy universe, but sadly most of the Warhammer games in that genre are all set in the 40k universe (and while I like Sci Fi as much as the next guy, 40k does not have Skaven, and we all know the ratties are the best enemies to murderize). My only real option has been Warhammer Vermintide, but that game with its FPS controls gives me motion sickness no matter what I do.
At release it appears there will be 4 character classes you can use, made up of an Empire Soldier (Tank), Dwarf (Slayer maybe? Melee DPS), High Elf (Mage), and Wood Elf (Bow / ranged) so we got the standard 4 styles of play represented here. As far as I can tell from the information available to me as well, the game will have both Solo and up to 4 player coop through the campaign, plus 10 difficulty levels and a boss rush mode so it appears there will be plenty to do in this game. They also appear to be using “combo” moves, where class abilities can interact in unique and interesting ways.
The visuals I have seen in trialers and screenshots are also pretty stellar, so I am excited to see where this goes.
There are plans for 2 Beta’s in the upcoming months prior to the launch as well, so if you were to preorder (available at select retailers, more info at their site here: www.warhammer-chaosbane.com)
