VIDEO - Warhammer Chaosbane - Dwarf Slayer Gameplay
There are a lot of Warhammer fans out there, and we have some new for you. After having introduced the soldier Konrad Vollen and the mage Elontir, Bigben and Eko Software have released a video of the dwarf Slayer, one of the 4 playable characters in Warhammer: Chaosbane.
So, you want to know more about this slayer? Well, Bragi Axebiter, the dwarf Slayer has taken the oath of the Slayer, vowing to cleanse his honour by dying in combat against a formidable adversary. This exceptional warrior is always searching for the most powerful enemies so that he can “finally” honour his oath. An expert in hand-to-hand combat, Bragi benefits from a high degree of mobility which allows him to launch into the heart of a melee in order to eliminate a particular target.
This ease of movement is augmented by the dwarf’s unique ability: he can throw his axe and launch himself at whatever it’s stuck in, whether that’s a wall or a Nurgling, using the controller’s right joystick or holding down the space bar to target. Then he can rain down blows upon his target before jumping to the next enemy. In cooperative, he’s the perfect character for eliminating a dangerous enemy who’s far from the melee while his teammates take care of the front line.
In terms of the game as a whole, Warhammer: Chaosbane offers a unique game mechanic, which can be activated by all 4 playable characters: by massacring the Chaos hordes, heroes can charge their Bloodlust meter by collecting red orbs. Once it’s full, the player can unleash their rage and activate new ultra-powerful skills. His worship of Grimnir, the Slayers’ ancestral god, lets Bragi Axebiter access a unique skilltree of overpowered spells.
