End Game + Season Pass Information

Just wanted to give a little more clarity for what you can expect from the end-game and some of our plans for post-launch with Chaosbane. We're still working on a video which will go into a little more detail about these systems (looking to have that out next week), so I can't go into full detail, though I'll try and collate everything that we've been talking about and sharing over the last few weeks.

Season Pass - 4 Pieces of Post-Launch DLC Content
  • Cosmetic Pets
  • Cosmetic Emotes
  • An alternative God Skill Tree for each character (new passive and active abilities, new ways to build your character, by making offerings to a new god).
  • Entire new act to the game (new location, new enemies, new story - unrelated to the main campaign).

I can't say where you'll be going (I'd love to), but if Chaosbane is about fighting ALL of the forces of Chaos, you might be surprised to know that the last act will be about not fighting the forces of Chaos.

Please Note: The season pass content is not currently in development. We'll be working on it after the release of Warhammer: Chaosbane. Currently our focus is on final polish ahead of our release in a couple of weeks.

Non-Season Pass Updates
We'll also have some updates planned for all players, so additions like the inclusion of a hardcore (permadeath) mode. New additional levels of difficulty. The inclusion of a post-level cap leveling system (which will come after launch). We also have plans to add additional heroic sets to the game, which you'll need to tackle the additional difficulty levels that will also be added to the game (and some of the modes we're about to mention).

End-Game Modes
  • Boss Rush

Boss Rush Mode allows you to farm out certain types of gear by aiming to take on the bosses you've previously defeated.

  • Expedition Mode

Expedition Mode allows you to traverse a number of randomly generated maps, collecting the fragments you'll need to power up your gear. You'll also come across a number of random events that increase your chances at rewards, but may make things more difficult.

  • Relic Hunt Mode

Relic Hunt is our 3rd end game mode, with large loot and fragment rewards, but a number of conditions that really add a challenging edge to your explorations. So, for a few examples:

  • Random poison zones across the map
  • You lose health as soon as you stop moving
  • Every time a hero uses a potion, his maximum health decreases permanently in the dungeon
  • Every time a hero takes damage, his armor decreases permanently in the dungeon.
  • When enemies life bars are low, they gain a few seconds invincibility.

Relic maps are purchased with in game gold, and come at a pretty hefty price. So make sure to bring your A game: https://twitter.com/WHChaosbane/status/1127257065750032385

Gear Augmentation + God Skills + Gear

Throughout your adventure, you're collecting fragments from defeating the creatures of Chaos. These are used to both make offering to your patron gods, choosing powerful active and passive skills that suit your playstyle.

However, these are also used to boost the power of your gear. Combinations of different fragments provide different effects, as does combining these fragments. We posted a photo about it here: https://twitter.com/WHChaosbane/status/1124340067311525888

Certain items have special effects too, for example in our Boss Rush image you could see that the mage is using a staff that raises a wall of flame around the character: https://twitter.com/WHChaosbane/status/1126169895710883841

About This Game

“Keep your eyes on this one, because it’s one quality Action RPG” – Entertainment Buddha



In a world ravaged by war and dominated by magic, you are the last hope for the Empire of Man against the Chaos hordes. Playing solo or with up to 4 in local or online co-op, choose a hero from 4 character classes with unique and complementary skills, and prepare for epic battles wielding some of the most powerful artefacts of the Old World.

THE FIRST HACK AND SLASH set in the Warhammer Fantasy world, told through an all-new story written by Mike Lee (a Black Library author) and featuring a soundtrack composed by Chance Thomas.

FEROCIOUS BATTLES: from the sewers of Nuln to the ruined streets of Praag, fight your way through monster hordes using over 180 different powers. Activate your bloodlust, a devastating skill, to escape the most perilous situations.

4 CHARACTER CLASSES, each with unique skills and customisation: a soldier of the Empire who can take heavy damage, a Dwarf specialising in melee combat, a High Elf who deals ranged damage by manipulating magic or a Wood Elf who lays deadly traps and wields the bow like no other!

AN XXL BESTIARY with over 70 monsters aligned with the Chaos Gods and unique bosses. Battle Nurgle's minions, Khorne's spawn and waves of other vile creatures!

OPTIMIZED FOR CO-OP: solo or with up to 4 players, local or online, the class synergy and interface have been designed for co-op. Combine different skills and powers to create even more devastating effects.

HIGH REPLAY VALUE: Story mode, a boss rush mode, countless dungeons and regular updates offer a rich and varied gaming experience. And with 10 difficulty levels, you can find the right challenge to test your abilities.
