Total War : Warhammer

Total War: Warhammer is an upcoming turn-based strategy real-time tactics video game in development by The Creative Assembly and published by Sega for Microsoft Windows. The game features the gameplay of the Total War series with factions of Games Workshop’s Warhammer series. It will be the 10th title in the Total War series and will be the first title to be released in the Total War: Warhammer trilogy. The title is set to be released on April 28, 2016. Total War: Warhammer is a real-time tactics video game with turn-based strategy element. Unlike its predecessors, which feature historical settings, Warhammer introduces a fantasy setting as well as characters from the Warhammer universe. These characters, which include monsters, warriors, and heroes, can be controlled by the player. The game will also feature four playable factions at launch, which are the Empire, the Greenskins, the Dwarfs and the Vampire Counts.[1] Each faction will have their own unique units. For instance, the Greenskins faction features units such as Trolls, Giants and Arachnarok spiders. The Empire is a human faction, which features units like Steam Tanks. Each faction will have their own unique campaign element. For example, a “Waaagh” system, which allows the faction to move faster, is unique to the Greenskins faction. A new mode called “The Battle of Blackfire Pass”, which is a quest mode that tasks players to complete missions and battles to receive unlockable items and abilities, will be one of the new game modes offered in Warhammer. Flying creatures, such as dragons, will also make appearances in the game, with the maps of the campaign being more “up-in-the-air”. Magic will also be one of the elements introduced in Warhammer. Unlike other Total War games; agents, such as Karl Franz, will be featured in battles as well as the campaign map. Named agents can get injured in battles, while the unnamed ones could be killed and cannot be revived and used again. Total War: Warhammer features a wider variety of animations. For example, 30 types of different skeletons and body types will be introduced in the game, instead of only five to six types as in its predecessors, as well as flying units. Other gameplay features from the Total War series, such as city-building, diplomacy and unit-building, will remain unchanged in Warhammer.
