Total War: Warhammer has been officially announced.  SEGA of America Inc and SEGA Europe Ltd today announced a new title from UK video game studio Creative Assembly.  It will be the first in partnership with Games Workshop, creators of the well-known Warhammer Fantasy Battle tabletop wargame and accompanying range of miniatures.

For the last fifteen years the Total War series has made its name on a unique combination of huge-scale real-time battles and an addictive turn-based campaign game of statecraft, politics and empire building.

Total War: Warhammer will take the series deeper into the realms of fantasy.  The rules have changed, but war never changes.  It just gets bigger.

The insanely deep and rich lore of Warhammer brings so much potential for a new era for Total War.  Gigantic beasts, winged monstrosities, legendary heroes and storms of magical power take the battlefield by force, alongside thousands of warriors clashing in real-time tactical battles.

“We’ve always loved the Warhammer universe, and couldn’t wait to approach it with the same colossal scale and authenticity that has characterised our titles for the last 15 years,” said Total War: WARHAMMER Project Lead, Ian Roxburgh. “We’re bringing it to life in a way that nobody’s attempted before.”

 

In the turn-based campaign game, players will find the Old World an unforgiving and deadly place, filled with endless war, cunning and crumbling alliances alike. No matter which race you choose to play as and however you seek conquest, you will be faced with a conflict that threatens to tear the very fabric of reality to shreds

The Old Word will be torn apart in the battles of men, dwarves, vampires and other creatures.  The question remains is how can we make a difference in these colossal real time battles.

The first in an epic trilogy of titles, Total War: Warhammer will deliver hundreds of hours of absorbing gameplay. It will combine with two further standalone installments and additional content packs to create the single largest Total War experience ever.

Total War: Warhammer will be available on PC and Mac.
