Warhammer: Chaosbane is on the way! It’s coming this April to Playstation 4, XBox One and PC. It’s time to meet the first of its four playable characters: the drawf Bragi Axebiter.
Bragi Axebiter, the dwarf Slayer has taken the oath of the Slayer, vowing to cleanse his honour by dying in combat against a formidable adversary. This exceptional warrior is always searching for the most powerful enemies so that he can “finally” honour his oath. An expert in hand-to-hand combat, Bragi benefits from a high degree of mobility which allows him to launch into the heart of a melee in order to eliminate a particular target.
Bragi can move quickly across the battlefield by throwing his axe at targets — his ability catapults him straight toward whatever the axe is stuck in. Just hold down the space bar or tilt the right joystick, and he’ll go flying. This ability to jet across the field lets skilled players get in blows before the enemy even realizes what’s happening.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is currently targeted for a June 4 release, but you can start playing earlier than that if you really want to. An early access beta has been announced for those who preorder the game on their machine of choice. What content awaits them is still under wraps, but in addition to exclusive early access, these early birds will receive four legendary crates and an experience bonus active for the entirety of the character’s progression.
Preorders for Warhammer: Chaosbane are officially open on the XBox Store and PS Store, along with the PC version (selected retailers will be participating….we’re assuming at least Steam). The first beta opens in March; the second will occur in April. Everyone else will have to wait until June, so if you’d rather not, you know what to do.
And now I hand the mike over to Bragi.
