With the Digital Deluxe and Magnus editions dropping today, and the standard edition just around the corner, it’s almost time to venture into Warhammer: Chaosbane’s Old World to take on the Chaos hordes. First, however, it’s time to find out what the critics have to say about the game – and whether it’ll be worth all that gold you’re probably already counting out.

Warhammer: Chaosbane releases next week, which naturally means it’s time to talk about what’s coming after launch. There will be plenty of free updates doling out new features over time, along with paid DLC that will make more substantial additions, including a new act featuring a new set of villains that aren’t even part of the titular Chaos.
The Warhammer: Chaosbane devs have revealed the game’s fourth and final character: a Wood Elf Waywatcher named Elessa.
The Diablo-flavored Old World hack ‘n slasher Warhammer: Chaosbane has a firm release date set: the game will launch June 4 on PC, and pre-ordering will grant access to two pre-launch private beta periods to give you a head start on stomping tentacled abominations.
Once upon a time, Warhammer games were pretty uncommon. Since 2014, there’s been a flood of them, and while some of those games are good, they’re not all up to the standards of titles like Total War: Warhammer 2. It remains to be seen which side of the line Chaosbane falls on – we are, as always, hopeful for one in the ‘good’ column – but the developers at Eko Software tell us that Games Workshop is aware of the reputation Warhammer games have gotten, and the company is trying to change it.
The flood of Warhammer games on Steam in recent years has produced mixed results, but it also means we get to see every subgenre’s take on Games Workshop’s universe. Chaosbane is one of the most promising – an action-RPG that pulls from Diablo and Path of Exile and takes place in the Old World. The setting isn’t its only novelty either – the developer has come up with a rather direct way of fighting your battles.
