Here is an overview of the game, via Bigben Interactive:

In Warhammer: Chaosbane, each class offers the player distinct abilities and gameplay. As you cooperate, online or locally, with up to four players, cooperation and strategy will be essential to doing away with the hordes of Chaos. Unleash Bloodlust, a unique mechanic in Warhammer: Chaosbane, which lets loose a devastating power that can change the outcome of a battle.

The first hack and slash to take place in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world, Warhammer: Chaosbane plunges the player into the heart of the Old World, a continent marked by the Great War Against Chaos, a bloody conflict which ravaged the Empire of men. They will embody a human, a high elf, a wood elf, or a dwarf, and discover the iconic locations of the Warhammer Fantasy Battles universe that’s captured the imaginations of millions of fans across the world.
