Warhammer: Chaosbane is a Return to the Old World

Warhammer: Chaosbane

The Warhammer licence is continuing to expand its packed 2018 slate of announcement with another video game, entitled Warhammer: Chaosbane.

Development responsibilities for this newest project will fall to Eko Software, a French studio with considerable experience in the hack-and-slash genre, with its most notable titles being the How To Survive series.

This project squarely targets Warhammer fans, being set in the Old World on a bloody continent that has been raised and devastated by wars against Chaos. Players can choose to embody a human, high elf, wood elf, or a dwarf as they explore several well-known series locations such as Praag or Nuln.

Gameplay-wise, Chaosbane is being advertised as an action-RPG, but, given Eko Software’s experience with hack-and-slash action, players can expect a combat system that is fluid and fast.

No release date has been confirmed as of yet, but the project is deep into development.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
