Excited for Total War: Warhammer? You should be, it looks incredible, here is a some gameplay demo footage for you. It is what was shown at E3 and blew me away when I saw it there, so prepare yourself.
Yes it’s a scripted sequence from pre-alpha code, but if this is what the game looks like in pre-alpha, just imagine how it will look by the time in launches, whenever that might be. The Battle of Black Fire Pass is a key event in the game, but how you take it on might not exactly match what you see in the trailer.
This spectacular scripted battle taken from pre-alpha game code, formed the basis for this year’s Total War: WARHAMMER E3 press demo and depicts a mighty clash between the forces of the Empire led by Emperor Karl Franz and a Greenskin horde led by Orc Warboss Grimgor Ironhide. This full and unedited capture of the demo, accompanied by developer commentary, offers an early glimpse at some of the fantastical battlefield units, spells, war machines, and monstrous creatures that will appear in the final game.
The Battle of Black Fire Pass will feature in Total War: WARHAMMER as a Quest Battle, available specifically to Karl Franz, and is just one of the many unique missions you can undertake as you progress through the Grand Campaign.
I just love the idea of finally including fantasy elements in a Total War game. It breathes so much new life into the franchise and makes me excited for Total War all over again. Show cares about being Roman or Japanese – I can be a Greenskin general! WAAAAAAAGH!
