The Total War Series Is Getting An Infusion Of Orcs And Magic

The Total War series is getting an infusion of orcs and magic with the long-rumoured Total War: Warhammer. Creative Assembly’s latest strategy game has been confirmed, although we don’t have a release date (or even year) quite yet.

Here’s how Sega and Creative Assembly are currently describing the game:

“Our rules have changed, and with change comes war on a scale as yet unimagined. Gigantic monsters, flying creatures, legendary heroes and storms of magical power take their place on the battlefield, alongside thousands of warriors clashing in real-time tactical battles. All at YOUR command. In the turn-based campaign game of statecraft & empire building, you will find the Old World an unforgiving and treacherous place, filled with endless war and cunning alliances alike. Whichever race you choose to play as and however you seek conquest, you will be faced with a conflict that threatens to tear the very fabric of reality asunder.”


  • Let’s hope they fixed the AI bugs so we don’t end up with five dragons vibrating on the edge of crenellations, while ground troopers are trying to climb up and drop onto the wall — of cannon fire.

    It’s a whole different game.


  • This could be a time sink and a half BUT I haven’t played a Total War game ‘hardcore’ since Medieval 2. Ever since Empire, none of the games have grabbed me by the balls and made me play them for 50-100 hour campaigns

  • Fingers crossed it doesn’t follow the rumoured 9th edition changes and actually gives us the real warhammer world that the fans actually want. I’m over games workshop and all their bullshit (seriously they are the worst run company in existence and treat their fans like total crap as they know their major $$ comes from sucking in rich children with out any incentive to retain active and loyal players) but I’d still eat this up.

    • Ah.
      You seem to have gotten lost on the information super donkey trail.
      This is not Bell of Lost Souls my dear friend.
      Though that comment certainly does fit there.

  • For anyone with Medieval 2 check out the Call of Warhammer or Rage of Dark Gods mod on ModDB. A really good total conversion with a working* Old World Campaign and lots of factions.

    *The Campaign has lots of scripted events which is cool but may get crashes occasionally. Also all the voices are in Russian.

  • Meh, when i saw the article i hoped it was 40k, but i guess we will have to settle for generic fantasy. But seriously why bother teaming up with the warhammer guys for this.
