Total War: Warhammer II Gets New Video Introducing High Elf Roster

The Creative Assembly introduce the roster of the proud High Elves in Total War: Warhammer II.

Today The Creative Assembly and Sega released a new video of their upcoming real time strategy game Total War: Warhammer II.

The video, starring Lead Battle Designer Alisdair Jarrold, introduces the steel-clad roster of one of the most disciplined armies of the Warhammer universe, the high elves.

Of course, I’m talking about the real Warhammer universe, which is the only one deserving to be played, and that pretty much survives just in Total War games. Luckily we aren’t looking at that travesty named Age of Sigmar, that Games Workshop thought was a good idea to release, probably after too many beers.

Games Workshop gripes side, we get to take a look at legendary lords, lords, heroes and rank and file troops, including classic like Tyrion, Teclis, Swordmasters of Hoeth, White Lions of Chrace, Ellyrian ReaversDragon Princes of Caledor, and all the units that veteran Warhammer players will recognize. Having had a short High Elf stint myself, before moving to Bretonnia, I’m definitely looking forward to play them.

Below you can check out the video, and the full roster. If you want to see more, you can also watch the first cinematic trailer,  a featurette video, and the first in-engine trailer.

Total War: Warhammer II will come exclusively to PC this year, and will bring a fully new area and four new races. It will come with High Elves, Lizardmen, Dark Elves and Skaven, even if The Creative Assembly didn’t officially announce the ratmen, and for some reason they think they’re being subtle about them.

Shortly after release, those who purchased both Total War: Warhammer and Total War: Warhammer II will get an overall grand campaign encompassing both games and all of their races, which will probably be a blast.
