This pre-alpha gameplay footage has made me happy. It’s made really happy. Like many dorky kids in the nineties, I grew up playing the original table-top version of Warhammer. My friends and I would spend weekends playing battles and arguing about rules until school started again on Monday. One topic would always come up: when were they going to make a decent Warhammer computer game. Earlier attempts at PC games based on Warhammer Fantasy Battle never really fulfilled our impossible wishlists, because hardware at the time was, well, rubbish really. Who would have thought we’d all eventually get the game we wanted, 18 years later? Because that’s pretty much what’s happening here with Total War: Warhammer.
Creative Assembly and publisher Sega have released a 10-minute look at 2016’s Total War: Warhammer. This is pre-alpha gameplay footage on show here, and it’s beautiful.
