thought /tg/ might be interested in this:


>SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON – 11AM GMT, December 6, 2012 – SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced that Creative Assembly™, award-winning creator of the Total War™ series, and SEGA® Group have entered into a multi-title licensing deal with Games Workshop® to create videogames based in the Warhammer® universe of fantasy battles.

>“With this year being our 25th anniversary”, said Tim Heaton, Studio Director at Creative Assembly, “it seems fitting for us to embark on such a dream project with such a well-established partner. The incredibly rich and detailed Warhammer world is something we grew up with, and has left an indelible imprint on us as both designers and gamers.”

>“We’ll be doing the Warhammer universe justice in a way that has never been attempted before. We’re bringing those 25 years of experience and expertise in extremely high-scoring games to bear, delivering a Warhammer experience that videogamers will absolutely love.”

>“We have enormous respect for SEGA and Creative Assembly and have felt for a long time that the combination of the enormously rich setting of the Warhammer world, and their stunning development talent is a match with huge potential,” said Jon Gillard, Games Workshop’s Head of Licensing. “Now that we’ve managed to bring these two giants of gaming together it is safe to say that some truly amazing products are going to be unleashed as a result. We are excited at the possibilities, and are enthusiastically working with the team at Creative Assembly already.”

You should have acted. They are already here. The elders told of their return.

I'm assuming having pre-set auto cast for the smaller spells, maybe the bigger stuff you'll have to pause and target them on specific areas/units.

It is definitely a Warhammer Fantasy affair they're going after, seeing as THQ confirmed they still hold the rights for 40k. This makes me happy to be honest, a Warhammer Total War would be pretty baller. It seems like balance would be an issue ont he campaign map - playing as Kislev is just asking to be overrun the moment Chaos starts getting uppity.

Also, I kind of hope they add some depth in minor factions rather than just doing the major factions present in the tabletop game - for instance possibly making the various Empire states seperate factions all loyal to the same crown, as it is lore-wise based off the HRE. Similarly, some minor human factions across the old world (Tilea/Border Princes anyone?) and having different warring factions of Orcs sounds great.

I kind of wonder what they'll do in the western continent though - that entire area really only has the Dark Elves and the Lizardmen across the entire vast landmass.

Half the game is turn based where you manage your cities and stuff and move your armies, when fighting happens it zooms down into real time.

Sounds sweet. And the fighting's actual formations and maneuvers and devastating charges into flanks?

>> No.21917726


Also, the campaign game is completely free-form and open ended, there's nothing linear about it. You want to take your army of Scottish higlanders and conquer the Holy Land? You get some fukken boats and go to TOWN on the place. That said though the campaign AI has always been kind of shaky, and as much depth as there is in the campaign game it always becomes a slow process of painting the map your colour once you get pretty well-established. It can still throw you a few curveballs if, for example, you're embroiled in a huge land war with a large power and your ally stabs you in the back though. It's fun, and you'll lose hours and hours at a time playing a TW game if you do get into it.

And yes, in terms of both strategy and tactics it is all entirely intuitive, applyin real-world doctrine to your strategy is perfectly feasible comared to games like Starcraft and whatnot.

I'm actually looking forward to some armies getting their roster expanded to fit into a TW-style strategy game - not all of them really do at the moment. As it is a lot of GW's more outlandish expansions have been pretty cool, Demigryph knights etc.

But it would be nice to see some armies getting different tiers of troops beyond the usual 'standard infantry' and the jump to 'badass elite two-hander-wielders' that many have. Seeing the Empire (or the various Imperial states like Middenheim and such, if that happens) get some early-game basic infantry preceeding the regulars, and some heavy infantry/veterans preceeding the jump to elite Greatswords would make for a much more fleshed out army roster.

Also, different Knightly orders even if there is little mechanical difference would be sweet. Knights of the White Wolf anyone?

I think a good addition would a semi-RPG system for characters and heroes, similar to how WC3 integrated it into the gameplay. Heroes and legendary characters are a big part of the Warhammer lore, and having a system whereby characters could progress would fit quite well. A combination of Shogun 2's talent tree system (expanded of course, and including physical combat talents in addition to strategic/leadership stuff because KILLMAIMBURN) and the older sum-of-experiences character traits system from Rome and Medieval 2 (Confidence in different aspects of command and administration, physical and mental scarring etc) would be a great system.

Also for Chaos characters it could make for some interesting progression, gaining the favour of your chosen god (or gods) and eventually ascending to daemonhood.

Overall yeah, the Warhammer setting is, I think, a perfect opportunity to include a more in-depth character-based system to the usual TW formula. What think?

GW doesen't affect the prices of the DLC, the publisher (in this case SEGA) does.

>> No.21920716

They won't be.

It'll probably be very geographicly centred around the empire to begin with. But I'm sure that if it's popular (it will be, the combination of Warhammer and Total War is a given seller) there will be additional material and expansions including versions of factions in other geographical locations so more of the WHFB armies gets included.
