SEGA has released a new trailer for Total War: Warhammer II, unveiling a new race, the Lizardmen, in what is said to be the game’s first in-engine trailer.
In case you’re wondering what that means well, according to their official wiki, it means the trailer has been created using the in-game engine to specifically create the trailer (so it’s not technically gameplay footage, but it is using in-game assets and visuals). It’s impressive to see what can be done with the in-game engine, because this looks awesome.
Anyway, want to know more about the Lizardmen? Here’s a little blurb SEGA released along with the video:
Lizardmen unleashed in Total War: WARHAMMER II’s first in-engine trailer!
Roaring out of the dense jungles of Lustria, these ancient, cold-blooded warriors are the servants of the Old Ones, enactors of the Great Plan and the true protectors of the world.
Along with the High Elves, Dark Elves, and one race yet to be announced, the Lizardmen are one of the four playable races in Total War: WARHAMMER II, and will be playable on the show floor at this year’s E3 in the first hands-on build of the game.
Brought low in millennia past by the daemonic incursions of The Great Cataclysm, their grand civilisation now lies in ruin. But a handful of Slann Mage priests still live, and with them hope – that their people may rise anew. Tireless in their quest to restore order to the world, the Lizardmen field a glittering diversity of scaled warriors, from the humble, nimble Skink, to the titanic Carnasaur: apex-predator of the Lustrian jungles.
