Publisher Nacon and developer Eko Software have announced that Warhammer: Chaosbane Slayer Edition will launch on Xbox Series platforms and PC on November 10. The PlayStation 5 version will then follow on November 12 and November 19 in the countries where the system is launching on those dates.
This upgraded version of the game features 4K resolution and 60fps support. It also includes all 12 of the DLC packs that previously released alongside a brand-new character who will be paid DLC for the other versions of the game. You can read more about it and watch the new trailer below.
Wearing the distinctive hat and long coat of his order, the Witch Hunter’s skilled use of two weapons makes him particularly formidable: in close combat with his sword and from a distance with his pistol. He wanders the roads of the Old World to purge it of Chaos. This inquisitor draws his power directly from his faith in Sigmar, and he becomes judge and executioner when he cleanses the heresy and Chaos he exposes.
As well as the introduction of this new character, there is also a free patch that adds improvements for new players and fans of the first hour of the game. The two hubs of Act 1 and Act 2 have been expanded. The area around the camp of Act 2 has also been enhanced with new enemies to fight. There is also a new area – the cemetery – which adds a new environment and a larger bestiary. This includes new enemies, including Daemon Princes, Skullcrushers (mounted and on foot), a Chaos Warrior and new cultists.
The new Witch Hunter character is part of the Slayer Edition on the new consoles and available as DLC for current-generation consoles. The patch with improved environments, new area and bestiary is free for everyone on all platforms.
The first hack-and-slash set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world, Warhammer: Chaosbane thrusts players into the heart of the Old World, a continent scarred by the Great War Against Chaos – a bloody conflict that has ravaged the Empire of Man. You can play as a Human, High Elf, Wood Elf, Dwarf, Dwarf Engineer or Witch Hunter as you explore the iconic areas of the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world, which has captivated millions of fans worldwide.
