Orcs vs Humans are so cliche, why not add a sprinkle of necrotic evil? The Vampire Count faction arises with his undead army in the above cinematic trailer featuring the many units under his command. The Vampire Count faction is led by Mannfred von Carstein, a chief acolyte trained in necromancy. His army consists of skeletons, giant bat winged creatures, aberrations, bone dragons and a whole lot more. The Vampire faction will be released alongside the Empire, Dwarves and Greenskins.
Not much is shown in terms of gameplay in this cinematic trailer as the name would imply. That said, the video shows off Mannfred’s motivations and a great deal of his army and their purpose. This ranges from the zombies and skeletons as typical melee warriors, bat creatures as the faction’s flying units, giant aberrations as the meaty tank unit and giant bone dragon riders as a specialized flying unit. The last little detail is the reanimation of corpses. This could be just thematics for the cinematic, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a faction trait for the Vampire Count.
Total War: Warhammer will be available as of May 24th, 2016 on Steam.
