Default Total War: Warhammer - Revealed?

January 14th, 2015, 17:01
Remember the news from last year about Creative Assembly making Warhammer Games well it seems the first game is just about to be announced. Or is it?

Link - http://www.bluesnews.com/s/158178/to…tally-revealed
The Total War Center Forums have a post from a user named StormOfRazors who received an early copy of a book called The Art of Total War, which shows off the visuals created over the years for the strategy franchise (thanks IncGamers).

This seems to accidentally spill some beans about the future of the series, as it contains references to an unannounced game called Total War: WARHAMMER, a concept which dovetails nicely with the collaboration between Creative Assembly and Games Workshop announced a bit over a year ago.

The post includes pictures to help confirm the news, so if this is a hoax, it is particularly elaborate. The reference is brief, but clear. Here it is: "We're also experimenting with this in the mobile space, with Total War: KINGDOM, and taking the series to a fantasy setting with Total War: WARHAMMER."
This better not be a hoax or I will be angry.

Now for a friendly reminder a Warhammer game does already exists, but its a mod for Medieval II: Total War: Kingdoms called Rage of Dark Gods.

If true, it could be the version of Total War that would get me to play Total War for more than 15 minutes, finally

I think he means why can't you play the other games for more than 15 minutes. Have to say I'm also curious as why as I played every game over the last ten years.

Both questions at the same time really

So, yeah … Why can't you play the others for more than 10 mins ?

Because I'm bored with them - and I don't like the settings. I did like Medieval Total War 2 - but only for a little while. I think the emphasis on warfare over strategy is skewed in a way that's not to my tastes.

I also think the strategic layer is rather weak.

But I've always enjoyed Warhammer - and since that was always about war and not strategy, I can likely accept the weaker strategic layer.

You can always try the King Arthur games. They are similar to Total War games but with a fantasy and magic setting. I thought the first game in the series was done well and was fun, but don't expect a huge strategic layer in terms of the overland map gameplay. The in-battle strategies are definitely there, though.
