Through a partnership from UK videogame studio Creative Assembly and Games Workshop, SEGA announced a new Total War.

Titled Total War: Warhammer, the game will release soon for PC, Mac and SteamOS.

Now in its 15th year of existence, the award-winning Total War franchise continues to offer a unique combination of huge-scale real-time battles and an addictive turn-based campaign game of statecraft, politics and empire building. The game will take the series to a realm of grand high fantasy for the very first time. Rules have changed, and with change comes war on a scale as yet unimagined.

The limitlessly deep and rich universe of Warhammer ushers in a new era for the long running franchise. 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.

In the turn-based campaign game, players 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, you will be faced with an intense conflict that will have a massive impact on reality.

“We’ve always loved the Warhammer universe, and couldn’t wait to approach it with the same colossal scale and authenticity that has characterised our titles for the last 15 years,” said Total War: Warhammer Project Lead, Ian Roxburgh. “We’re bringing it to life in a way that nobody’s attempted before.”

The first in a trilogy of titles, Total War: Warhammer will deliver hundreds of hours of absorbing gameplay. It will combine with two further standalone installments along with additional content packs to create the largest Total War experience ever.
