Total War: Warhammer will meld the tabletop fantasy game of Warhammer with the large-scale battles of the Total War gaming franchise. Since the announcement of the game and the trailer that accompanied it, the question that has been asked over and over again is “Can Warhammer make the transition from a tabletop game to videogame?” Some critics fail to realize that this transition has already been done with varied success with games such as Warhammer: Mark of Chaos and Warhammer: Battle March.
The real question that people should be asking about this new endeavor of the Total War series should be “Can the fantasy elements from Warhammer be put into the Total War game?” Total war games have always been strategic historical games from Shogun: Total War up until the latest historical addition to the franchise Total War: Attila. As of yet, there is no set release date for Total War: Warhammer except for an estimated time late this year. Inevitably, there will be more and more gameplay videos and hopefully answers to the fans’ questions about this newest Total War game.
