BigBen and Eko Software partnered with French animation studio Ankama to create a special story trailer for Warhammer: Chaosbane which covers all of the necessary background for a player to enjoy Chaosbane without a massive working knowledge of the Warhammer world.
After all, Warhammer: Chaosbane is the first RPG to take place in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world. Therefore, it plunges players into the heart of the Old World, a continent marked by the Great War against Chaos. Players can chose to create a human, high elven, wood elven, or dwarven character and discover several iconic locations from the Warhammer Fantasy Battles universe.
Warhammer: Chaosbane will be available on PlayStation 4T, Xbox One, and PC starting June 4, 2019. However, owners of the Magnus and Digital Deluxe Editions will get a headstart in the game, beginning on May 31, 2019. If you haven’t already picked up the game, you can still pre-order a copy of all three editions here.
You can check out the new story trailer below.
In an age of lawlessness and despair The Empire of Man lay in ruins, torn asunder by civil war and wracked by famine and plague. And so it was, in the year 2301, that a Kurgan warlord named Asavar Kul united the savage tribes of the Chaos Wastes and made war upon the realms of men. The invaders entered the distant northern kingdom of Kislev and sacked its largest city, Praag. But in the Empire’s darkest hour, a nobleman from the south named Magnus rallied the people of the Empire to resist the invaders. The Imperial army marched to the rescue of the Kislevite capital fighting Kul’s army in a massive battle outside the city walls. Joined by mighty heroes from all across the land, Magnus defeated Kul in single combat, and the Chaos horde was scattered to the winds. Blessed by the gods and heralded as the true Emperor, Magnus returned to Nuln in triumph. But even as the Old World celebrated Magnus’s victory the Dark Gods were planning their revenge.
