With Total War: Warhammer II out in just 10 days, Creative Assembly have finally realized that we're all playing Total War wrong and have released a video telling us how to do it properly. Alternatively, long-term Total War fans may not know how much the campaign has changed with the inclusion of the Vortex in Warhammer II so this video will act as a good introduction on just How To Win A Campaign.
The video has actually been made by for Creative Assembly by community YouTuber Zerkovich, but is clearly supported by the team. It really is quite in-depth, getting in to such topics as taxes, diplomacy, recruiting, stances, sailing, and rogue armies. Around the 8:00 mark the video talks about Rituals and the Vortex itself, the big new addition that if you don't pay attention to you'll quickly find yourself losing despite being the most powerful nation around.
It's certainly a great instructional video for anyone unsure about how to manage a Total War campaign properly, which are quite intimidating to anyone not familiar with them. Heck, I'm familiar with them and even I struggle. See the hash I made of the Norsca DLC campaign for Total War: Warhammer. If you're not an absolute veteran of Total War: Warhammer, and are such an expert you can win without even looking at your monitor, then it might be worth a look. Any tips are appreciated to us "less skilled" players.
With Total War: Warhammer II out in just 10 days we've had a lot of content released for the game recently. The System Requirements and new graphical features are probably the most useful, along with a few developer Lets Plays. You can also check out our Hands-On Impressions of the new Skaven campaign as well as an interview with the team. And do you want to know where Total War: Warhammer 3 will be set and what races will be in it? Of course you do.
Total War: Warhammer 2 is out September 28.
