Those Empire soldiers look really dull to me, a Medieval 2 mod does them much better justice.

I'd rather a historical setting. Guess I'll stick to playing Shogun.

I will gladly wait for this game to come out...read some reviews and wait for some time. Total War games are usually a bug ridden mess when they come out, and i got burrned too much.

well from the in engine we can expect the types of terrain, and general unit models (just not all animations) also the level of polish and filter are better than what you will see in the final game, but I like that there seem to be underground battle map and what's more i loved the fortress that was shown there. it was like three layers of walls so siege battle can be interesting.

 

Obviously the difference between the game and the trailer will be similar to what you saw between black pass in-engine trailer and gameplay footage at the least.

I don't like. I don't like it at all. I'm active on their boards and the popular request was for a title like Total War: 1914

I don't know... it gets kinda of tricky when yo move to 20th century... it's an era of dominant artilery, air force and mechanized units... the trench wars of WW I do not really look too appealing.

 

The last Samurai in the Shogun 2 is the fine border IMO and even there I thought that some arty units and off map bombard calls start to be a bit too strong and take away from the tactical gameplay.

 

lets see how they can pull off the flying units, "magic bombardment" and various logn range arty, and mechanized units in small amounts in the TW:Warhammer title. If it will be running nicely I won't mind if they would try the WW I era, but it will completely shift the balance on the units level on the battlefield.

There are plenty of historical settings that would fit better than 1912 imo, but I really wish they would bring back mod support. So we can get a new Third Age in the new engine.

 

CA have lost the ability to make a balanced, good or even playable single player experience it seems with their complete lack of good AI. Or at least I haven't been able to enjoy it since Medieval 2. So I have little hope for this title either.. But mods usually fix it to the point of playability, so perhaps in a 3 years when its on sale.

I wonder how they can make combat visually bearable.

It was already awkward even when every unit fought with bayonets.

With the sheer variety of monsters and weapons melee could end-up looking like a ridiculous puppet dance.

I can only hope that they will make it good enough... They added a lot of new 3D skeletons and animations, etc. one of the reasons why on the release we will get only 4 races with some subfactions (?), and no sea combat, and the whole package will be released over 3 games, which each will be expanding on the playable map and races, which are rumored to reach the full 15 or even 16.

 

I HOPE that they are able to pull it off as I love both Warhammer and Warhammer 40k franchise and a big part of me suffers knowing that there is no good RPG in any of them (looks hopefully at Obsidian)

Not in the first part.

 

This one will feature:

 

Empire

Dwarfen kingdoms

Vampire Counts

Orcs

 

still unknown in what capacity chaos will be presented, but probably not playable hordes and in game events.
