We say “finally” because really, this has taken its sweet time to become official. Over two years ago Sega and everything-Warhammer-related-company Games Workshop signed a deal that would see the publisher developing real-time strategy games based on the Warhammer fantasy table-top miniatures game. Then, in January this year, a Creative Assembly art book accidentally let slip that Total War: Warhammer was something that was being worked on. Almost three months later, we finally have this official reveal.
Sadly it’s not called Total Warhammer because I guess that would have been too obvious. Total War: Warhammer will see the fantasy miniatures series getting the Total War RTS experience, compelte with large scale turn-based conquest elements, and real-time strategy battles.
This will be the first time that the Total War series releases a game that isn’t based on real-world historical eras and events. You can see a cinematic reveal trailer after the jump.
