Dark Light

Eko Software has shed some light as to what players can expect on the endgame and season pass of its upcoming ARPG Warhammer: Chaosbane.

The devs are still working on a video which will go into a little more detail about these systems. But that will have to wait till next week. In the meantime, here’s the condensed version below:

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).

Non-Season Pass Updates

They 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). They 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 the following game modes.

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

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. The devs posted a photo about it here: https://twitter.com/WHChaosbane/status/1124340067311525888

Certain items have special effects too, for example in the 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
