The Creative Assembly has released a preview trailer for its sequel title, Total War: Warhammer II.
The trailer, viewable below, teases two continents in The Creative Assembly’s sequel to its first Total War video game adaptation of Games Workshop’s Warhammer franchise, which is slated to be a trilogy. Ulthuan, the High Elves’ homeland, is the first shown, giving an inkling of the proud, highly developed people who live there. Next comes Lustria, stomping grounds of several races from the Old World. The trailer closes with a Lizardmen Legendary Lord leading a large force into battle against the High Elves at The Fallen Gates.
Total War: Warhammer 2 features continents far to the west of The Old World. The game introduces four iconic races from the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world–the High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen, and a yet-unannounced fourth (widely expected to the Skaven).
Struggles for control of the elven homeland’s Great Vortex in Ulthuan will be heavily featured in the narrative-focused campaign. Each race must compete against one another to be the first to perform several rituals in order to save or disrupt the Vortex. A huge combined campaign map to feature both the old and new world regions will be available for free shortly after release to players who own both Total War: Warhammer games.
Total War: Warhammer 2 is due to launch on September 28, 2017, for PC. For impressions of the E3 demo for the game shown at E3 earlier this month, check out a preview by OnlySP’s very own Dylan Warman.
