INTRODUCING NEW WEAPONS

WEAPONS OF RAT DESTRUCTION


Two destructive new weapons have been added to the roster, and they can be obtained by playing one of the immersive new Drachenfels levels.

WITCH HUNTER

VOLLEY CROSSBOW


A semi-automatic Crossbow which can fire 15 bolts before requiring a reload. For Victor Saltzpyre, the Witch Hunter. This weapon can only drop on levels included in the Drachenfels DLC.


WAYWATCHER

GLAIVE


The Glaive is a vicious two-handed elven weapon, designed to slice through Skaven in one mighty swing.

In the hands of its owner, the Glaive is a force to be reckoned with. More powerful than any of the two handed combinations previously used by Kerillian. Skaven limbs will fly with each strike.



NEW LEVEL

CASTLE DRACHENFELS


An abandoned castle with a dark past, Castle Drachenfels has remained standing throughout the centuries despite all manner of unsavory characters having tread its halls. Now the Skaven have invaded its falls, in search of a deadly artifact.

Our heroes must now explore these ancient rooms, covered in the blood and bones of the past, and stop the Skaven at all costs.

THE DUNGEONS


Darkness envelopes The Dungeons of Drachenfels castle, and death lurks in the shadows. One wrong step might lead you into a Skaven ambush or right into a deadly spike trap.

A torch has become the stoutest ally, guiding our heroes through this deadly maze of rooms, tombs and bones. But always be vigilant towards your surroundings.

SUMMONER’S PEAK


With Castle Drachenfels looming in the distance, Summoner’s Peak is a sight to behold. Ancient portals have been repurposed by the Skaven to act as gateways to the Under Empire, bringing Skaven reinforcements to the surface.

Our heroes must overheat these portals if they are to stand a chance against the Skaven army.
