Today The Creative Assembly and Sega released a new in-engine trailer of their upcoming strategy game Total War: Warhammer II.
The trailer introduces the Dark Elves, or the Druchii as they call themselves. They’re the third new race coming to the game following the High Elves and the Lizardmen.
The title will also include the Skaven as a fourth race, even if they have not been officially revealed. The tease at the end of the announcement trailer was absolutely obvious, but apparently the folks at The Creative Assembly think they’re being subtle about the pesky ratmen.
At the moment, the Total War: Warhammer series is the only major representative (at least for strategy games) of the old dear Warhammer fantasy world, since Games Workshop itself decided to basically destroy everything and release a travesty called Warhammer: Age of Sigmar, which includes very little actual Fantasy and way too many space marines wannabes.
Personal ramblings aside, it’s great that we can at least enjoy the old lore in The Creative Assembly’s games, and Total War: Warhammer II looks really promising.
If you want to see more, you can enjoy a new gameplay video featuring the High Elves, the first gameplay trailer, the special editions, a video featuring the High Elf roster, a recent in-engine trailer, and the first look at the campaign map.
The game will come on September 28th, exclusively for PC.
