Historical hints from the Total War teams

Total War might have been away in the land of elves and orcs for a while now, but it hasn't forgotten its historical roots. In fact, Creative Assembly are working on three historical Total War games: one is an expansion to an older title, one is a spin-off of sorts called a Saga, and the biggest of the lot is set in an entirely new…

Total War’s free Mortal Empires DLC merges Warhammer 1 and 2

Total War: Warhammer is a big game, and the recently released Total War: Warhammer II [official site] is even bigger. But in the eyes of the Creative Assembly, that still isn't big enough. To remedy this, they've come up with the Mortal Empires DLC, a free download that will essentially merge the two games' campaigns together in one huge map, letting players assume command of…

Premature Evaluation: Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator

Every week we pit Brendan against the thousands of half-formed games of early access in a doomed battle for supremacy. This time, the huge and ridiculous fights of Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator. There’s not much in UEBS that isn’t possible in any of the Total War series. I mean, if you discount the ability to pit masterly Chickens against a force of Orcs. Apart from…

Time Commanders brings Total War back to TV tonight

Time Commanders, the BBC game show where contestants order around someone playing Total War, returns to British screens tonight.

There Is Only War: Playing Total Warhammer As The Chaos Warriors

Raze, sack, slaughter, burn, maraud. The life of a Total War: Warhammer [official site] Chaos Warrior is simple, with few diplomatic interruptions and little in the way of urban planning. There are buildings to construct, but they're part of the caravan of carnage that makes up your nomadic horde, and when you lay waste to a settlement, occupation isn't on the cards. The Old World…

Total War: Warhammer review

Watching the Greenskins approach from a dusty brown hilltop with the remnants of the High King's great Dwarven army, I knew I was probably going to lose this battle and, with it, the entire Blood River Valley that I'd spent most of my game trying to conquer. I'd already defeated three other Orc armies in the last two turns, but this made one unstoppable horde…

May 24th is launch day and today we've got latest in a series of campaign videos that show how the different factions will approach the game's strategic layer.

Feature: The Death of the Party

Hands On With Total War: Warhammer’s Vampire Counts

Bleached white bone is the new black, undead immortality is the new 30 and death is the life of the party. Playing as Total War: Warhammer's undead faction, the Vampire Counts, injects some fresh mechanics into the long-running strategy series' blood and provides plenty of evidence that this will be far more than a fantasy paintjob applied to well-worn rules and mechanics. There are two…

Total Warhammer’s Vampire Counts Debuted In Trailer

Warhammer understands how to do vampires: not with glittering skin, conditioned hair and smart high street dress sense, but with unwieldy jagged armour, sharp weapons and general all-round evilness. The latest Total War: Warhammer [official site] in-engine cinematic unveils the Vampire Counts, the final and as-yet unseen playable race in The Creative Assembly's adaptation of Games Workshop's war-a-thon, which is due for release in May.

Total War: Warhammer Delayed, Now Out May

Creative Assembly and Sega have announced a delay to Total War: Warhammer [official site]. It's not a very long delay - from April 28th to May 24th - and the reasoning behind the extra development time makes sense. Mike Simpson, Total War Creative Director, says the studio doesn't want to "rush" toward release: “This could be the best Total War game we’ve ever made. We…
