Total War Warhammer Magic Trailer Shows How to Best Utilize It

Creative Assembly’s real time strategy turn based is going to launch in ten days from now, and if you are one of the near million fans who are definitely going to buy it on PC, you should prepare yourself to what the game brings to the table.

In order to get you up to speed, the developers have been sharing videos outlining specific features of the game. This time they have shared one relating to the magic that is used in the game.

The footage in question is going to introduce you to how the Total War Warhammer magic elements work. The best part is that it is a very detailed account of the features and not just a mere promotion.

The Winds of Magic blow across all of the Old World and beyond. Dangerous and unpredictable, yet supremely powerful in the right hands, they add an explosive new layer of tactical depth to the colossal battles available in Total War: WARHAMMER.

The trailer takes you through a variety of “its devastating effects,” and also touches upon topic like “how best to utilize the spells at your disposal to thwart your enemies and turn the tide of battle in your favor.”

The developers have said that “the true potential of some spells for instance is only unlocked when combined with smart tactical manoeuvres,” so basically what they are trying to teach you is that the Total War Warhammer magic system is not just a bunch of spells you can pick from, you need to match them with your war tactics.

Total War Warhammer releases to PC on May 24, 2016.
