Sega officially announces Total War: Warhammer


Missed opportunity for an easy portmanteau

Sure, we might have unofficially known about its existence since January, but Sega still wants to wow people with the reveal trailer for Total War: Warhammer. Pretend to be surprised!

It’s got the Warhammer staples: humans, orcs, undead, dwarves, and lots of yelling. It sounds like the campaign can be tackled from the perspective of any of the main races, with narrative tweaks depending on that choice.

Total War: Warhammer is only the first in a planned trilogy, which will eventually combine to create “the single largest Total War experience ever.” Given the massive scale of the miniature tabletop battles Warhammer fans go through, the “go big or go home” mentality is pretty central to the franchise. It makes sense that it would end up as something huge with this franchise mashup.
