Warhammer: Chaosbane Adds Spooky Scary Skeletons With Tomb Kings DLC
I fucking love Tomb Kings. The world needs more Tomb Kings. The redheaded stepchild of the Warhammer Fantasy Universe, the Tomb Kings are the best take on zombies in all of nerdlore. They’re not some legion of mindless thralls (like some shitty von Carstein). The Tomb Kings serve their chosen lord out of eternal respect and reverence.

And they have fucking war sphinxes.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is a dungeon crawler that came out last year to some mixed reviews. Many criticized the antiquated combat system and lackluster builds for most of the classes. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Diablo-style ARPGs. But then again, they never had Tomb Kings in them. In the DLC you’ll travel to the land of Nehekhara to assist the Amethyst Order in uncovering the dark secrets held within the ancient crypts of the Tomb Kings. You’ll explore the deserts of the Land of the Dead and explore 10 different tombs, filled with both spooky skeletons and deadly environmental puzzles. It’s like Indiana Jones meets Warhammer. I’d say that the inclusion of Settra serves the game, but we all know that Settra DOES NOT SERVE.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The Tomb Kings DLC is presently only available on PC through Steam, but will be released next year on consoles. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, Chaosbane is available now for 50% off. The deal ends December 19th.
