What is Warhammer Chaosbane
Anyone who lives action RPGs will find something to love in Warhammer Chaosbane. The story is just familiar enough to be welcoming to new and old players alike, and the gameplay mechanics are satisfying for any hack n slash fans.
Players who are already fans of the Diablo franchise’s gameplay mechanics will also find something endearing in Warhammer Chaosbane. The game takes inspiration from the Diablo series but offers a new world and new foundation to experience ARPGs.
The world of Warhammer Chaosbane
Set in a fantasy world, the game literal calls its setting the ‘Old World’. War hammer Chaosbane makes no effort to hide its obvious love for medieval high fantasy. Players can choose between four classes – humans, high elves, good elves, and dwarves.
Each class offers its own benefits and styles of playing. It’s always worth the effort to try out all the different classes to see which gameplay style suits different players the best.
The story of Warhammer Chaosbane is rather simple. The player signs up and is introduced to the Old World. Here, they must fight together with allies in the ‘Giant War Against Chaos’.
Following story elements from other similar games in the genre, Warhammer Chaosbane really shines when it comes to boss battles. Very early in the game, the player is introduced to ‘The Great Unclean One’. Fighting this boss immediately allows the player to understand the level of difficulty they can expect from this game.
The campaign mode is long and lengthy, but many of the settings can get dreary after a while. The reason behind this is that while the setting appears to have changed between two areas, it mostly feels like a cosmetic background change. This must have saved a lot of time in development though, and any dungeon crawler fans are bound to enjoy the experience.
After players finish the campaign mode, they can also experience the Expedition and Boss Rush mode. The Expedition Mode is a quick run through the Campaign mode and the Boss Rush mode lets players exclusively replay Boss Battles for the experience.
Players can try out different character classes to discover what suits them the best. There are various obtainable items from quests and dungeon crawls that can make characters even stronger. The choices players make in the game do not specifically alter the events of the story, but are designed to help the immersive experience.
Later on, players will find items that can decide how strong or weak their characters are. The strategy is key in Warhammer Chaosbane. A tank, for example, should make use of defensive items, while a ranged marksman should focus on attack boosting equipment. Its top-down gameplay uses the same battle mechanics as other button-based RPGs.
