Bigben and Eko Software have sent out a new trailer featuring one of the four playable characters coming in Warhammer: Chaosbane, the upcoming ARPG. Bragi Axebiter is a dwarven Slayer "vowing to cleanse his honor by dying in combat against a formidable adversary". He is in a constant search for the most powerful foes to bring his oath to an end. He is a hand-to-hand combat specialist with high mobility that brings him into "the heart of melee".

This ease of movement is augmented by the dwarf’s unique ability: he can throw his axe and launch himself at whatever it’s stuck in, whether that’s a wall or a Nurgling, using the controller’s right joystick or holding down the space bar to target. Then he can rain down blows upon his target before jumping to the next enemy. In cooperative, he’s the perfect character for eliminating a dangerous enemy who’s far from the melee while his teammates take care of the front line.

Warhammer: Chaosbane is the "first hand and slash to take place in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world" where players are sent to the "heart of the Old World, a continent marked by the Great War against Chaos". Playable characters include dwarf, high elf, wood elf and human. The game will launch on June 4th for PlayStation 4, XBox One and PC.
