Total War: Warhammer 2’s latest trailer is perhaps my favourite yet.
Creative Assembly has created fantastic cinematic in-engine trailers for its wonderful fantasy strategy game for some time, but the trailer for upcoming DLC The Warden & the Paunch somehow raises the game.
Evoking a battle from The Lord of the Rings movie, the trailer shows an army of Mad Max-style goblin chariots bearing down on an army of elves, who clash in dramatic fashion. And then the golems sprout from the ground, and then a burning phoenix smashes into the ground, and then mages fire magic bolts into the masses, and then the two faction leaders, Eltharion the Warden of Tor Yvresse, and Grom the Paunch prepare to face-off. Basically, I can’t wait to watch the series finale of HBO’s latest.
