A new trailer has been released for the upcoming hack-and-slash game Warhammer: Chasobane which shows off our first glimpses of the combat for the Dwarf Slayer character. The trailer starts by explaining some of the lore behind the Warhammer world’s warrior cult, the slayers, before showing off Bragi Axebiter the games Dwarven slayer character. The Dwarf is shown off taking down an overwhelming number of opponents and unleashing multiple rapid attacks spread across a vast range, dealing death in a wide arc and taking out numerous enemies at a time.

The combat in Warhammer: Chaosbane looks like it’s shaping up to be a bloody and intense scrum with superior numbers definitely on the side of the enemies, despite the game’s co-op focus. The Dwarf Slayer is the third such character of the four available that we have gotten an in-depth look at, with combat gameplay for the High Elf Mage and Captain of the Empire character being revealed over the past 3 months.

Warhammer: Chaosbane is due out on June 4th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and can be pre-ordered now for access to the eventual two closed beta periods expected at some time in March and April.

Check out the gameplay below:


Quick Take

The Dwarf Slayer looks like they’re shaping up to be one hell of a brutal and aggressive character to play as. From all that we can glean in this gameplay video, it seems like his focus is on pure damage dealing and crowd control, making him a potentially important part of co-op in the game. Only time will tell how the characters work together but I for one cannot wait to find out. 

What do you think of the Dwarf Slayer? Will you be playing as him when the game releases in June? Let us know what you think of the video and the game in the comments down below.
