First in-engine Total War: Warhammer trailer released

Good griffon!

The first in-engine trailer for Total War: Warhammer has been released.

It shows the Battle of Black Fire Pass, and centers on Karl Franz, who leads the playable Empire faction, as he does battle with the Greenskins.

The video gives us a look at some of the more fantastical units in the game including giants, wizards, trolls, demi-griffons, wyverns and griffons. They'll all have a varied assortment of animations to make everything look very dramatic while you war.

We wrote a Total War: Warhammer preview earlier in the year based around watching this full battle while Creative Assembly controlled the camera. There was no UI or anything, and the battle was heavily storied, but the camera was being controlled in real-time and it gave us an idea of what to expect.

There's no release date for the game beyond "coming soon", which it probably isn't, given it has no date yet. Also, Total War: Attila came out earlier this year.
