A trailer (below) shows a battle between the Kingdom of Kislev and a Khorne-adjusted chaos force, with peas for Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch Chaos forces, and a final look at a Cathay faction:This will be the video game debut for the Kislev and Cathay factions, and publisher Sega promises, “players will wage war with the most varied selection of legendary heroes, giant monsters, flying creatures and magical powers the series has ever seen.”
As for the new campaign, Sega says players will be tasked with “saving or harnessing the power of a dying god. Each race offers a unique journey through the nightmarish Chaos Realm, culminating in an endgame that will determine the fate of the world.”
“Our vision, from the beginning, was to create a series that felt like an incredible journey through this world we all loved,” said game director Ian Roxburgh in a press release. “The enormous support from our players to ensure the success of the first two parts has pushed our ambition to new heights, and we can not wait for everyone to experience it.”We gave Total War: Warhammer 2 a huge 9.1 / 10 review, saying: “The story and the targeted campaign is a league above anything we’ve seen in the entire Total War series before in both design and presentation.”
We were not the only ones who liked it: Superman himself, Henry Cavill is a big fan, and ended up being an Easter egg in his own favorite game.
