So, we’ve already seen videos showcasing the soldier Konrad Vollen, the mage Elontir, and the Dwarf Slayer Bragi Axebiter, but the newest Warhammer: Chaosbane trailer focuses on the fourth and final playable character, Elessa the Wood Elf.
Elessa the Wood Elf is a scout who proved herself in Magnus’ army thanks mainly to her mastery of long-distance combat and exceptional mobility. Not only can she perform an arsenal of spells based on persistent damage, which are able to injure and poison a large group of enemies, but it’s also possible to summon Forest spirits known as Dryads to help her in battle. Even when surrounded, her wide range of skills enable her to change the situation and make it more to her advantage; using spells to slow down the hordes, dodge, or entangle them, for example.
In regards Elessa’s Bloodlust ability – each character has a different one – well once the meter is filled by decimating the enemies and then collecting the red orbs, she can unleash the built up rage in a way that’s unique to her. What that means is that when the Bloody skill is activated, a load of arrows will descend from the skies upon her enemies.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is set to take us to the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world for the first time and into the heart of the Old World for some hack and slash action. We’ll meet the dreaded Chaos for a bloody encounter on 4th June for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Those of you who are super eager though could simply order the special Magnus Edition to get stuck in a little earlier on 31st May.
Now that all four playable characters have been unveiled, which one are you most looking forward to taking on the Chaos with? Don’t forget to check out the new Warhammer: Chaosbane trailer for the Wood Elf in the meantime, and should you wish to know more about the game, give our hands-on thoughts a read.
