Total War: Warhammer 2 trailer features Dark Elves
Developer Creative Assembly has released a new cinematic trailer for Total War: Warhammer 2, showcasing the villainous Dark Elves, one of the most evil races in the Warhammer universe. Their closest kin, the High Elves, are described as “paragons of virtue“, whereas the Dark Elves “represent all that is foul and depraved in the Elven soul.” So they’re really, really evil.
The trailer is, admittedly, light on gameplay (in fact, it contains no gameplay at all), but it does serve as a good introduction to the Dark Elves, who are known for their brutally-swift tactics. Treachery and backstabbing are commonplace in Dark Elf society, and a Dark Elf leader “must preserve his alpha status in the eyes of his lesser generals.”
Alongside the High Elves and the Lizardmen, the Dark Elves will be available on Total War: Warhammer 2‘s release on September 28th.
