Creative Assembly has just revealed their trailer for “Total War: Warhammer 2”, the second game of the Warhammer trilogy they have planned. This new game will introduce four brand-new races and will take place in the New World.
What we know so far
The game will be featuring Lizardmen, High Elves, Dark Elves and a fourth unannounced race that we’re pretty sure is Skaven clan Pestilens. The campaign will take place in the continents of Lustria, Naggaroth, Ulthuan and the Southlands. There will be two Legendary Lords for each faction each with their own starting position (In the trailer, we saw Malekith for the Dark Elves, Lord Mazdamundi for the Lizardmen and Teclis for the High Elves). All four races are competing for a common goal, so this is the first Total War game when the AI can beat you to the objective, and you can lose without even being wiped off the map.
The most exciting news is that owners of the first game and the second game will gain access to the “combined campaign” that will include the Old World, the New World and all the races of both games, including any DLC races you might have bought.
Some bad news
Today it was revealed that there will not be naval battles in “Total War: Warhammer 2”. Considering there is a lot of sea between Lustria and the Southlands this is a bit of a disappointment. Furthermore, no gameplay footage was shown today, and it seems CA will be slowly releasing information to generate excitement about the game…And a small part of the Total War community is sad that no new historical title was announced.
Other than the few small issues listed above this announcement is everything the fans of the “Warhammer” series hoped for with a lineup of extremely popular races and the promise of combining the first and second game for an epic experience.
And with that said, what did you think about the “Total War: Warhammer 2” trailer? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
