The newly announced titular mouthful- try saying it 3 times fast- will be a turn-based strategy game launching on Mac, SteamOS and Windows PC. A spokesman from Sega gave the super specific release date of “soon”, continuing- with what I can only assume came accompanied with a cheeky wink- that it would be part of an “epic trilogy of titles”.
“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 in an announcement. “We’re bringing it to life in a way that nobody’s attempted before.”
Featuring “gigantic monsters, flying creatures, legendary heroes and storms of magical power” this game looks like its going to have it all. Oh, you also command thousands of troops at once. Considering my meat-grinder infantry tactics, it looks like I’ll be having to write a lot of condolence letters.
Your familiar brood member is dead.
FOR THE EMPIRE!
