Total War: Warhammer 2 screenshot of a High Elf vs Dark Elf battle

Ever since Total War: Warhammer first arrived people were complaining about the siege battles, and rightly so since most of them played out exactly the same, regardless of faction. So when I heard that Creative Assembly released a video showing off the High Elf fortress of Eagle Gate I had high hopes that this could usher a new era of siege warfare, but I'm afraid that's not the case. From what I can see, the siege battles will remain mostly as they are.

On the positive side, there are some improvements that have the potential to spice up siege gameplay, mostly notably the uneven terrain and seemingly destructible walls! Rather than blabber on, allow me to share with you the recently posted preview video. Have a look, its quite interesting:

How exactly all of this will play out in the hands of skilled players, I have no idea, but thankfully we won't have to wait for long to find out as Total War: Warhammer 2 will be coming on September 28th. If you would like to learn more, or just check out some of the other gameplay videos, you should head over to the official website. If you're a fan of the High Elves, or if you're curious about what sort of campaign mechanics you'll have to juggle in Total War: Warhammer 2, I would also recommend you check out the recent campaign video over here. Enjoy!
