The reveals for the upcoming Warhammer: Chaosbane roll on with the introduction of the second playable character; the High-Elf mage Elontir.
Scourge of Chaos
The first aRPG title to feature the high-fantasy Warhammer license, Chaosbane is looking mighty good. The game features a story that pits the Olde World against the Chaos gods. Of course, that means it promises plenty of hacking and slashing.
To that end, we first got introduced to Konrad Vollen, a human soldier of the Imperial army. Today’s reveal though, is a warrior of a different sort. Meet Elontir, high elf and mage.
Elontir, a High Elf mage, is a veteran who has already fought the forces of Chaos at Praag, earning a certain renown amongst his peers during the siege of Kislev. This ranged damage specialist’s mastery of the Winds of Magic allows him to cast numerous spells, while his dexterity allows him to quickly put distance between himself and a foe attacking him in melee.Chaosbane press release
Like each of the game’s characters, Elontir has a unique ability: he can precisely control the area-of-effect’s position for his spells using the controller’s right joystick or holding the space bar. With this capacity Elontir can, for example, slow time down on the enemy’s path to help his allies decimate the Chaos hordes. This effect can also be used to accurately push a group of enemies towards his allies who specialize in close combat, in perfect complementary cooperation.
Warhammer: Chaosbane lands on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
