While it wasn’t the best of kept secrets, SEGA has finally announced Creative Assembly’s latest project – Total War: WARHAMMER for PC, Mac and Steam. No release date has been set, but it will be released “soon.”
“Total War: WARHAMMER will take the series to a realm of grand high fantasy for the very first time in its history. Our rules have changed, and with change comes war on a scale as yet unimagined. The limitlessly deep and rich universe of Warhammer heralds a new era for Total War,” read SEGA’s press release.
“Gigantic monsters, flying creatures, legendary heroes and storms of magical power take their place on the battlefield, alongside thousands of warriors clashing in real-time tactical battles,” it continued. “In the turn-based campaign game, players will find the Old World an unforgiving and treacherous place, filled with endless war and cunning alliances alike. Whichever race you choose to play as and however you seek conquest, you will be faced with a conflict that threatens to tear the very fabric of reality asunder.”
Total War: WARHAMMER will be the first title in a new trilogy and will see additional content packs added to it over time to create the largest “Total War experience ever,” according to SEGA.
“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. “We’re bringing it to life in a way that nobody’s attempted before.”
