“No Naval Battles In Total War Warhammer 2”, Says Creative Assembly

The Creative Assembly and Sega released three days ago a new Total War Warhammer 2 trailer; it was focused on some of the new races that will be present in the game: the High Elves, the Dark Elves, the Lizardmen, and – maybe – even the Skaven.

There’s a lot of hype for the game, and if you are interested, you can look at the game’s description provided on Steam:

The second in a trilogy and sequel to the award-winning Total War: WARHAMMER, Total War: WARHAMMER II brings players a breathtaking new narrative campaign, set across the vast continents of Lustria, Ulthuan, Naggaroth and the Southlands. The Great Vortex Campaign builds pace to culminate in a definitive and climactic endgame, an experience unlike any other Total War title to date.

Playing as one of 8 Legendary Lords across 4 iconic races from the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, players must succeed in performing a series of powerful arcane rituals in order to stabilize or disrupt The Great Vortex, while foiling the progress of the other races. Each Legendary Lord has a unique geographical starting position, and each race offers a distinctive new playstyle with unique campaign mechanics, narrative, methods of war, armies, monsters, Lores of Magic, legendary characters, and staggering new battlefield bombardment abilities.

As far as features are concerned, the development team has announced that there won’t be any naval battles In Total War Warhammer 2.

Since continents are connected by the sea route, you will still be able to travel via sea, but if you encounter other players, the winner of the battle will be picked up by the computer.

What do you think of this move by The Creative Assembly? Would you have liked doing naval battles in Total War Warhammer 2?

Total War Warhammer 2 is an RTS video game in development at the Creative Assembly, and will release sometime in 2017.
