I absolutely love WH40k, but it really wouldn't work as a TW game. WH Fantasy should be epic, tho.

Apparently they're never going to make a 3rd title in a series darmaster, so no Medieval 3 for you.

NOOOOOOO

I'm pretty sure it will be crap.

First, it will all be about DLC bullshit warhammer is perfect for this.

Second, the fun part of warhammer (especially the new gen) is the randomness. Especially the randomness of magic. I don't think they will dare to put as much of randomness in their game and I'm not even sure it would fit in a PC game.

Third, the best you could exploit out of warhammer mechanism apart from randomness, is the clear difference between civilization. But for this there is starcraft and I'm pretty sure TW can't get to their level.

Apart from that, warhammer universe is cool and diverse, it could produce great PC game but TW has become too fucked up to succed in that task.

I watched some videos regarding use of magic in the game, and, apparently, there is going to be randomization to it. As in, the great strength of magic will be balanced out by making it highly unreliable (dependent on the strength of winds of magic, iirc).

Warhammer Fantasy worked pretty well in Shadow of the Horned Rat and, though I've played it less; Blood Omen. I think CA have a good chance of pulling it off aswell.

Oh god, anything Warhammer related is bound to be top dollar with a million DLCs or expansions before you have even half the civs you want/expect from a Warhammer game.

Coupled with Total War's unholy lust for DLC, it's gonna be ludicrous.

It's disappointing that the Empire seems to be one faction, they should've learned something from the Call of Warhammer mod.

Are we sure it's going to be one faction? The impression i got is that, even though there are only like 4 factions, each one is split into counties/chiefdoms/etc and you got internal politics/da-big-boss-aint-dat-big stuff.

We can only hope.

And yes, the DLC milking is going to be apocalyptic.

Which is why a smart player pirates. Nothing is more fun than paying sixty dollars for a game and knowing pirates get half more content than you.

you forgot DLC "offered" if the game is pre-ordered which I still struggle to grab the justification :shock:

Obviously Sega may change their minds but that's what they said a while ago.

To be fair I'd like a more focused game anyway, like Crusader: Total War or something, the big world map ones can be frustrating at times.
