Conquer the Old World in Total War: WARHAMMER

The pre-launch teaser assault is in full swing for upcoming large-scale, strategy war game Total War: WARHAMMER. Developer Creative Assembly has taken the legends, races, and worlds of the Warhammer lore and brought them into a different kind of strategy blood-fest. With Total War: WARHAMMER, players can take command of one of four warring races: the human Empire, the Orcs, the Dwarfs and the Vampire Counts. Humans have a mix of things; they have armor, weapons, training, and magic. The Orcs specialize in power and brute strength. Meanwhile, the undead Vampire Counts have some unholy abominations and flying menaces to throw at their victims. Finally, the Dwarfs bring their patented engineering and explosives to the field of engagement. It sounds simple but the scale, depth, and multi-faceted campaign make it all very interesting and a bit overwhelming. Think Warcraft 3… but much bigger.

When it comes down to it, each of the four sides is fully capable of murdering the other. But who players pick to conquer the Old World with is up to them, as detailed in the video below.

Total War: WARHAMMER is due out May 24, on PC. For more on Total War: WARHAMMER, see our latest preview.
