Bigben and Eko Software have revealed a commentated gameplay video; for Warhammer: Chaosbane taken from the Gamescom demo.
This mission takes place in the sewers of Nuln, the Imperial capital; which have been invaded by servants of the Chaos god Nurgle. Here we meet Warhammer: Chaosbane’s first two playable characters: Konrad Vollen, captain of the Empire and specialist in close combat capable of taking a lot of damage, and a High Elf mage named Elontir with devastating long-distance attacks.
These few minutes of gameplay illustrate the importance of cooperation; between different classes that each offer their own gameplay and unique skills. The spells used in this video are just a preview of the 45 skills each character will have available. Finally, a mechanic that is unique to Warhammer: Chaosbane was revealed: bloodlust. A devastating power that lets you access powerful skills that can change the outcome of a battle.
The first action-RPG to take place in the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles; Warhammer: Chaosbane invites the player to plunge into the heart of the Old World, still marked by the Great War against Chaos; a bloody conflict which took place some time before. They will embody either a human, high elf, wood elf, or a dwarf; and discover several iconic locations; such as the cursed city of Praag, or the city of Nuln; which was the capital of the Empire at the time in which the Chaosbane story is set.
