Did you watch Total War: Warhammer 2’s cinematic trailer just lately? Did you see the rat on the finish? Well, based on recreation director Ian Roxburgh, “it’s just a rat”. Totally not a touch that the Skaven are coming, no sir. Just an innocuous, pointless, evil rat that serves no objective in any respect, however they rendered it anyway. Okay? Okay.
Outside of cheeky Skaven teases, the brand new trailer commentary embedded above does present a good bit of perception, mentioning the elite items and giving us the lowdown on the Great Vortex mechanic.
The latter gives the sport with a story thread and a brand new victory situation, nevertheless it’s fully non-obligatory if you wish to win by extra conventional means: murdering everybody.
Some races wish to sustain the established order, stopping the Vortex from spinning uncontrolled, whereas some wish to destabilise it for no cause in any respect. It’s fantasy Brexit, principally. Honestly, even the official YouTube descriptions says it’s “a struggle culminating in a cataclysmic endgame”.
Total War: Warhammer 2 is out a while this 12 months.
