Creative Assembly proudly unveiled the first gameplay video for their upcoming title, Total War: WARHAMMER. This video shows off the Battle of Black Fire Pass, which is one of the many Quest Battles that players will be able to experience.
The above demo, accompanied with developer commentary, has been taken from the work-in-progress code and depicts a desperate clash between the forces of the Empire, led by Emperor Karl Franz, and a Greenskin horde, led by Orc Warboss Grimgor Ironhide.
The Battle of Black Fire Pass formed the basis for this year’s Total War: WARHAMMER E3 press demos, showing off a glimpse of the tremendous diversity of battlefield units, spells, war machines, monstrous creatures, and fantasy environments that players will be able to look forward to when the game arrives.
This particular Quest Battle will be available specifically to Karl Franz, and represents one of the many bespoke, optional encounters that you will be able to unlock as you progress through the campaign with your chosen Legendary Lord.
Here is the latest in-engine cinematic trailer based on the Battle of Black Fire Pass:
