Creative Assembly’s Total War franchise takes a dive into the land of fantasy with Total War: WARHAMMER.
There are a number of factions on display in the trailer. The Empire, the Greenskins, the Undead, the Dwarfs, and what appears to be Chaos. The trailer follows the path of a priest of Sigmar as he details the endless war taking place between the various factions as they launch attacks and defend against each other. Eventually the priest succumbs to what can only be Chaos as he becomes unstoppable summoning a beast, or dragon, that will devour the world.
According to PC Gamer, Sega has only announced four factions: the Empire, the Greenskins, the Dwarfs, and the Vampire Counts.
Total War is known for combining turn-based campaign strategy with real-time tactical battles but throwing in magic and flying creatures gives the series a whole new dynamic. Total War: WARHAMMER will be the first in a trilogy of standalone games to what Creative Assembly claims will be the largest Total War experience ever.
Personally, I haven’t played a Total War game since Medieval II, but this one piques my interest.
Do you hear the voices too?!! Will you be checking out Total War: WARHAMMER?
