We finally have seen some actual gameplay from the next installment in the Warhammer: Total War franchise and it certainly seems to be making some distinct changes to help make it feel like the definitive entry in the franchise.
Firstly we got to see two of the new factions, Kislev and the Chaos Demons of Khorne, battle it out and all of the unique units that they have and I must say Kislev look incredibly interesting with their hybrid units and giant elemental bears. Secondly we saw one of the new Chaos Realm environments meaning that not only will we be fighting in the mortal realm but will also be jumping directly into the realms of each of the Chaos Gods which makes me very interested to see what Nurgle’s realm will look like. Finally we were shown a brand new battle mode, Survival, which will essentially be a mix between standard combat, tower defense and horde mode gameplay having your armies slowly upgrade, build defences and capture certain areas of the map.
It all seems very interesting and I cannot wait to see what the other Chaos Realms look like. They also mentioned the pre-order bonus race would be revealed soon so I am waiting with bated breath for the reveal of Nagash! Wishful thinking…
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
