Warhammer: Chaosbane is a new hack'n slash action/RPG set in the Warhammer Fantasy world.
Despite what the article subtitle says, the game isn't set in the Warhammer 40k universe. It is set in the Warhammer Fantasy universe. A huge difference.
Did not know there was a difference, the article itself stated the correct setting, I'll adjust the subtitle though.
Not your fault. Warhammer is a fantasy universe with knights, dwarves, orcs, witches, demons, etc. Guns are very crude affairs. Think of it like a twisted dark ages on earth. This is the setting for the recent Vermintide games as well as Warhammer Total War titles (love those all). W40k is set in the 41st Millenium and earth is ruled by the god emperor. More of a sci fi setting that still has orcs, demons and the like. This is where you find the space marines. There are similar factors in both settings such as the threat of chaos.
ahh it all makes so much more sense now .. always kind of wondered how there were space marines and rats/knights in the same warhammer universe. Thanks for that :)
