Total War: Warhammer has received its first official cinematic trailer, and is narrated by British actor Steven Berkoff, who is most famous for working on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and A Clockwork Orange. Sega and The Creative Assembly on Wednesday released the cinematic announcement trailer for the turn-based strategy game, which teases “our rules have changed,” referencing that this is the first high fantasy game in the series. You can watch the full trailer below.
In a press release, Sega said Total War: Warhammer will deliver “hundreds of hours” of gameplay–and two additional expansions will follow. Total War: Warhammer is the first in a three-part trilogy, Sega said, noting that two standalone installments–as well as further DLC packs–will be released later. This all combines for the “single largest Total War experience ever,” Sega said.
Over the past several months, Total War: Warhammer has hit the headlines several times, due to the fact that in January it may have been accidentally leaked by someone posting a picture of The Art Of Total War artbook. The artbook was later officially released on January 23, although no official word came at that point in regards to Total War: Warhammer. The game was then officially announced and teased at the start of March. The teaser came as part of a 15 Years Of Total War trailer, which you can see below (the teaser comes at the end of the clip).
So far, the game has not been given a proper release date, although the trailer below says that the game is “coming soon”. On top of this, there has been no information given as to which platforms the game will be released on, although it could be considered a safe bet that the game will be released on PC due to the fact that the series has a long history with the platform.
