Total War: Warhammer 2 screenshot of Malekith

Total War: Warhammer 2 is the second game in a trilogy that is supposed to span the entirety of the Warhammer Fantasy universe and include all of the playable races from the tabletop. As you might expect from the fact that the action takes place in the "New World" Total War: Warhammer 2's launch version will bring with it High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen, and naturally, the Skaven which are so sneaky they have yet be revealed.

So far almost all of the videos and articles were focused firmly on the Lizardmen and High Elves, which is why I'm very glad to say that we have finally received some in-engine footage of the Dark Elves doing what Dark Elves do best - murder and pillage. There's sadly no gameplay to be found, but its well worth checking out for Malekith alone! Have a look:

If you're wondering what exactly this in-engine trailer has in common with the actual graphics, you will find a surprisingly detailed answer over at the official wiki. Long story short, the visuals are pretty much exactly what you're going to get in the finished game, though the animations have been spruced up in order to create a more interesting video.

On a slightly unrelated note, if you're interested in seeing what Total War: Warhammer 2 will look like when it comes to gameplay, you'll find the recently posted High Elves vs Lizardmen gameplay video right here. There are a couple of flaws given that Total War: Warhammer 2 is still in early development, but otherwise it looks pretty damn impressive!
