Total War: Warhammer just received its first official trailer and it’s totally epic! So much so actually, that I’m starting to get a bit concerned. You see, I’m a huge Warhammer fan and although I much rather prefer the 40K universe, I’m willing to also give the fantasy titles a chance every now and again. Problem is, this franchise has been plummeting in recent years and let’s face it, there hasn’t been a decent Warhammer game in ages. Could the latest installment in the Total War series change all that? The trailer is certainly very pretty, but do trailers even mean anything nowadays? I mean, have many bad games with great trailers do you know? More than a few I bet.
As you can probably tell by now, I’m both skeptical and excited when it comes to this game. I’m been waiting for a good Warhamer 40K game for so long that I’m now willing to play anything with the Warhammer label on it hoping that maybe, just maybe, I’ll finally come across a good title. No luck in recent years. In any case, there won’t be any Space Marines here, but this game still looks like it could be a lot of fun regardless. I’m not saying that because of the CGI trailer (which is likely not representative of the final product), but because the Total War series has always provided quality real-time strategy games. The Total War series was all about history in the past, but now it looks like the folks over at Creative Assembly want to try their hand at fantasy as well. This is certainly a bold move and I’m very curious to see what comes out of it.
According to Creative Assembly, Total War: Warhammer will offer “war on a scale as yet unimagined,” a feature that will surely please both veterans and newcomers alike. Not a whole lot else remains to be said at this time since the game doesn’t have a release date and we haven’t seen any in-game footage either. However, rest assured that we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one, so stay tuned for more news and updates as they arrive.
