The original Total War: Warhammer brought many things together, including two different universes with two very different styles of gameplay. And yet, the result was something very unique, and very special. It earned many awards, and fans wanted more. And soon, they will get it with Total War: Warhammer 2, which is set to arrive on September 28th. However, if you’ve been wanting to take a look at how certain races battle in the game, look new further than the latest gameplay demo.
There are four races to play as in Total War: Warhammer 2. The swarming hordes of the Skaven, the noble High Elves, the mysterious Lizardmen, and then the brutal Dark Elves. The latest video shows the Dark Elves in all of their power and terror as they try and take down a defensive force set up by the High Elves. Lead by Malekith the Witch King, the Dark Elves will not stop until the Vortex of power is theirs.
As you can see, the size and scale of these battles is massive. But also, they’re very tactical. You’ll need to use your resources wisely in order to overcome threats. And sometimes that means summoning a dragon or another beat to do the dirty work for you, whatever it takes.
Make no mistake though, there’s a story in Total War: Warhammer 2, and for the Dark Elves, it’s one of revenge and power. Malekith the Witch King loathes the High Elves and their superiority complex they have above other races, and he hates how they would try and seal away such power. He wants revenge for what was done to his race, how they were cast out, cast aside, and he will have his vengeance.
So, no matter what race you like, and which you play as, you can expect a full experience once the game releases.
