A Total War: Warhammer battle - up close and personal

We're not trolling.

Creative Assembly has released a trailer that offers a close look at a battle in its strategy game Total War: Warhammer.

The video, below, features a scripted battle demo taken from work-in-progress code, and shows a fight between the Empire, led by Emperor Karl Franz, and a Greenskin army led by Orc Warboss Grimgor Ironhide. We see units clash, guns fire and spells smash down onto the battlefield. It looks great!

The Battle of Black Fire Pass is a quest battle available specifically to Karl Franz, Creative Assembly said, and is one of many optional encounters you unlock as you progress through a campaign.

Total War: Warhammer is due out in 2016. Hopefully that gives Creative Assembly enough time to reconsider and rename the game Total Warhammer.
