by Rainier on March 5, 2019 @ 4:25 p.m. PST

Warhammer: Chaosbane is a hack-and-slash action/RPG set in the Warhammer Fantasy world.

Last year Bigben interactive and Games Workshop signed a partnership for the development of a consoles and PC game based on the renowned Warhammer Fantasy Battles IP, tasking EKO Software (known for How to Survive 1 en 2) with the development job.

Warhammer: Chaosbane is a new action RPG hack'n slash game in the Warhammer Fantasy world, taking place in the Old World, a dark and bloody continent devastated by the wars against Chaos.

In Warhammer: Chaosbane, the player will be plunged into the middle of Old World history as they embody a human, a high elf, a wood elf, or a dwarf and discover several iconic locations such as the cursed city of Praag, or Nuln, the old capital of the Empire.

Warhammer: Chaosbane offers a unique game mechanic, which can be activated by all 4 playable characters: by massacring the Chaos hordes, heroes can charge their Bloodlust meter. Once it's full, the player can unleash their rage and activate new ultra-powerful skills. Thanks to his prayers to Hoeth, the Elven god of knowledge and learning, Elontir has access to powerful spells using a unique skill tree.

Bigben and Eko Software are pleased to announce the dates for the first phase of the closed beta for Warhammer: Chaosbane, which will be released June 4th.

The two beta phases will be accessible to all players who pre-ordered the game (Standard, Digital Deluxe or Magnus version).  Pre-orders remain open throughout the beta.

The first phase will be from March 7th to 13th on PlayStation 4TM, Xbox One, and Steam.

  • Pre-downloads start March 6th at 1 a.m. (PST)
  • Beta starts on March 7th at 1 a.m. (PST)
  • 1st phase ends on March 13th at 1 a.m. (PST)
During this beta, players will be able to develop their characters to level 20, explore the sewers of Nuln, and fight Nurgle demons. The beta can be played cooperatively with up to 4 players, either locally or online. Two characters will be available: Konrad, the Imperial soldier, and Elontir, the High-Elf Mage. 

Dive into the heart of the Warhammer story, become a hero and battle to survive the desolation.

Warhammer: Chaosbane will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC starting June 4th, 2019 and beginning May 31st for owners of the Magnus Edition.
