Speaking of Warhammer, as I did yesterday, a new trailer has been released for the upcoming Total War: Warhammer. I am rather looking forward to this game, giving what may be one last look at the old Warhammer World, pre-Age of Sigmar.
The video was described thusly by the developers:
This release is the first in a series of cinematic trailers rendered in-engine, that will introduce the Legendary Lords of Total War: WARHAMMER.
These renowned characters from the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world can be selected in-game to lead the charge of conquest. Each has a unique range of special abilities, weapons, armour, mounts and their own distinct narrative quest chain.
In this trailer we meet Emperor Karl Franz, the revered leader of the Empire, as he rallies his army of men and deadly imperial artillery in a famed battle against a ravening horde of ferocious Greenskins.
The Battle of Black Fire Pass is one of Karl Franz’ unique quest battles in Total War: WARHAMMER, and also formed the basis for this year’s E3 demo. You’ll be able to watch the battle in its entirety, along with a developer walkthrough in just two weeks’ time on Thursday 30th July.
I am not usually the biggest fan of the Total War series, but will probably pick this one up when it released. There doesn’t seem to be any announced date, and Steam has the game listed ambiguously as ‘coming soon’.
