Total War: WARHAMMER Announcement Trailer

Creative Assembly has announced Total War: WARHAMMER and released the debut trailer. The trailer gives a lot of information to cover. It is filled to the brim with hero, army and unit reveals. 

Total War: WARHAMMER will take the award-winning PC strategy series to a realm of epic high fantasy for the first time. 

Gigantic monsters, flying creatures, legendary heroes and storms of magical power take their place on the battlefield, alongside thousands of warriors clashing in real-time tactical battles. All at your command. 

In the turn-based campaign game of statecraft & empire building, you will find the Old World an unforgiving and treacherous place, filled with endless war and cunning alliances alike. Whichever race you choose to play as (Orcs, obviously) and however you seek conquest, you will be faced with a conflict that threatens to tear the very fabric of reality asunder.

Judging by the trailer there will be a lot of enemies to battle against in the game. Notably, Orcs. Lots and lots and lots of Orcs.

So far we know that the playable factions consist of Orks and Goblins, Dwarfs and Vampire Counts. As of now it looks like Chaos will be more of a background menace, perhaps a villainous NPC faction. Goblins will be part of the Orc hoards.

a greater threat still whispers in the winds from the north. The fabric of reality itself begins to rend and buckle.

Check out the trailer below. The game itself seems like a very promising concept. Dragons, Magic, War. What more could you want? 

We’ve always loved the Warhammer universe, and couldn’t wait to approach it with the same colossal scale and authenticity that has characterised our titles for the last 15 years. We’re bringing it to life in a way that nobody’s attempted before.
