Now, this looks pretty entertaining and yes, it’s really good to see this legendary series tip its weathered cap to the speedier gameplay found in the Diablo series. Don’t get me wrong, though. I so love the tactical approach to both the Warhammer board games and PC/console games as well as most of the pure action games that have popped up in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Warhammer: Chaosbane feeds that need for my isometric games loving side and if the gameplay videos are any indication, it’ll also be a game that spends some quality time in my play list and perhaps even rise to the top if all it promises works as planned.
My brain says “SOLD!”, so this one’s added to the bucket list. Thank you, brain. Also, thank you EKO Studios and Bigben for making this a reality as the first ARPG in the franchise.
Of course, if you’re looking at that gallery above and videos above and below and are also pre-sold on all this incoming isometric chaos, you can indeed do the pre-order thing and get a nice set of bonuses for plunking down that payment:
Eh, here’s a little more gameplay to hook you in, why not, right?
Oh, you like dwarves? Well, that’s good, too. here’s some gameplay for that class (and he’s also the cover model – good gig, that modeling work!):
Warhammer: Chaosbane will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 4th, 2019 for the Standard Edition and on May 31st, 2019 for the Digital Deluxe and Magnus Editions.
This might actually get me interested in Warhammer.
Yeah, they seem to be targeting those folks resistant to the turn-based gameplay in the other games, but that’s a good thing. The dev team worked on the How to Survive games (a pretty amusing zombie-themed game with an isometric view), so they at least know what they’re doing on the gameplay front.
