Welcome to The Old World Trailer | MOUSE n JOYPAD

Creative Assembly has provided a lot of video content for their upcoming title Total War: Warhammer, from Let’s Play sessions with the developers to cinematic trailers, there has been an impressive and encouraging level of content from the developer. Their newest video: Welcome to The Old World, incorporates a variety of spectacular battlefield environments and brand new footage from the stunning campaign map. Welcome to The Old World takes a journey across the entire Total War: Warhammer’s Old World and offers us an ominous first look at Archaeon Everchosen, the most favoured Son of Chaos.

Covering a very impressive distance and map size, the Old World of Warhammer Fantasy Battles is as diverse as it is perilous; from the lakes and groves of Bretonnia to the infested forests that surround the Empire’s cities; mountain passes that are guarded by the Dwarfs, to the haunted marshes and bleak moors of Sylvania. To the north are the ice covered lands of Norsca and beyond that… darkness and insanity reign in the realm of Chaos.

Following on from this video, an all-new series of ‘Battlefield Briefing’ videos will be released on the Total War YouTube channel in the coming weeks to show us elaborated and detailed visual accounts of the various battlefields and environments we will witness in Total War: Warhammer

Total War: Warhammer is a fantasy strategy game of legendary and epic proportions, combining an addictive turn-based campaign of empire building and conquest with colossal, explosive, real-time battles that are all set in the vivid and incredible world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles. Total War: Warhammer will release on 24th May 2016 on PC and is available for pre-order now.

I got my hands on Total: War Warhammer at EGX Rezzed last week and thought that the game was visually impressive (even though the build on offer was a couple of months out of date). For fans of Total War who may be concerned at the new fantasy setting, during my hands on I noted that the mechanics and base gameplay seem to be the standard Total War gameplay we have come to expect.
