It's difficult to believe that no-one made a Warhammer hack 'n' slash RPG before now, but here we are - Chaosbane is the first action RPG to grace one of the deepest fantasy universes out there, and fans are going to be delighted.

The elevator pitch for the game is basically, 'Diablo in the Warhammer universe'. That means you play from an isometric point of view while you furiously bash the heck out of your enemies. It's the kind of old school brawler that goes so far as to show you the stats you're knocking out of your foes as you bludgeon them with magic.

For the serious fans out there - the game takes place in the middle of the Old World history and you can try your hand as a human, a dwarf, a high elf or a wood elf and you can do it in locations such as Praag or Nuln. It's on you to save the soul of Magnus, last defender of the Empire of Man from the encroaching forces of chaos. The script is by Games Workshop writer Mike Lee, so you know you're in good hands.

You can get into the action solo or with three mates, locally or online, and when you're done creaming the story mode you can come back for more with boss rush mode, infinite dungeons and weekly challenges for an even more intense hit of battling.
