Warhammer: Chaosbane isn’t a particularly new entry into the gaming scene, but come launch of Xbox Series X|S and PS5, we’ll be finding a number of additional content drops arriving in game – with a new character at the centre of the action.
Nacon and Eko Software have today confirmed that on launch of Xbox Series X|S (Nov 10th) and PS5 (Nov 12th/19th), Warhammer: Chaosbane will pull out all the hacks and slashes with the new Slayer Edition.
The Slayer Edition of Warhammer: Chaosbane will be the most complete version of the game to date, hitting next-gen with all the DLC in tow (that’ll be no less than 12 packs), and all the updates you could imagine, with those including Keela, the Tower of Chaos and a 4K 60FPS visual experience.
Further to this though and the jump to next-gen will see a new character arrive – Jurgen Haider the Witch Hunter. Wearing the distinctive hat and long coat of his order, the Witch Hunter’s skilled use of two weapons makes him particularly formidable: in close combat with his sword and from a distance with his pistol. He wanders the roads of the Old World to purge it of Chaos. This inquisitor draws his power directly from his faith in Sigmar, and he becomes judge and executioner when he cleanses the heresy and Chaos he exposes.
But that’s not all and as well as the introduction of this new character, there will also be a free patch that adds improvements for new players and fans of the first hour of the game. The two hubs of Act 1 and Act 2 have been expanded. The area around the camp of Act 2 has also been enhanced with new enemies to fight. There is also a new area – the cemetery – which adds a new environment and a larger bestiary. This includes new enemies, including Daemon Princes, Skullcrushers (mounted and on foot), a Chaos Warrior and new cultists.
Whilst the new Witch Hunter character is part of the Slayer Edition on Xbox Series X|S and PS5, it will also be available as DLC for current-generation consoles. The patch with improved environments, new area and bestiary is free for everyone on all platforms.
If you haven’t yet played Warhammer: Chaosbane and are looking for a new hack-and-slasher to get involved with, get over to your favourite digital store right now. Set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world, Warhammer: Chaosbane thrusts players into the heart of the Old World, a continent scarred by the Great War Against Chaos – a bloody conflict that has ravaged the Empire of Man – and no matter whether you play as a Human, High Elf, Wood Elf, Dwarf, Dwarf Engineer or Witch Hunter, will get the chance to explore the iconic areas of the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world.
