A wise old blue faced man once said you can take our lives but you can never take our Warhammer figurines, and I think he might have been onto something. Having seen Warhammer Fantasy phased out entirely by Games Workshop last year, the classic tabletop game is back with a bang thanks to the folks at Creative Assembly. Total War: Warhammer is the most outlandish Total War yet, and you can see just how frenetic the frontline can get in a new 360° launch trailer.

It does a pretty fine job of showcasing the scale of some of the larger battles. Having had a brief session with it already it doesn't usually look quite as hot from up on high in the tactical perspective, but there's certainly some cinematic grandeur to washing the Greenskins go at it hammer and tongs with the undead armies of the Vampire Counts. 

Total War: Warhammer is out in just a few hours time, unlocking on May 24th worldwide. In the meantime be sure to check out our benchmarks for both the PNY GeForce GTX 960 OC and the Radeon R7 370 to get a good idea of performance, while we've also got our Low/Ultra comparison video up later today.
