Warhammer: Chaosbane Has Its Own Endgame Planned, Launches June 4th

Warhammer: Chaosbane has released details for both its endgame and future content in its Season Pass.

The developers at Eko Software have laid out the plans for the post-launch of the game, beginning in the summer with the addition of Difficulty level 11 and new elements in the form of rings.

Emotes are planned for release, as well as companion pets that follow your character into combat. There will also be a new “God Skill Tree” to be released with both new skills and character builds.

The final part of the season pass is touted as offering a new story, enemies, and locations to engage in combat.

The four playable characters feel as though they are taken straight out of Gauntlet: Slayer Edition from 2015. This is not a criticism, as most dungeon-crawling ARPGs do need those stereotypical roles filled with a tank, a wizard, a brawler, and a ranged bow and arrow user.

That the game looks and feels like other ARPGs is not meant to be criticism either, rather it is a caveat to keep at the forefront of thought when examining this game in its long-term playability. As polished as it may look and as enjoyable as it may be from a lore perspective for fans, today’s market for ARPGs is saturated with excellent alternatives that shine in their endgame. What will Warhammer: Chaosbane do to stand out among these other games?

Warhammer: Chaosbane will launch June 4 on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam.
