Total War: Warhammer was one of the biggest surprises in recent memory, bringing two legendary gaming franchises together for an original story that blended the gameplay of Total War with the lore and characters of the Warhammer 40k world. This award-winning game was loved by many, so it was no surprise that Total War: Warhammer 2 was revealed. Now, a new trailer shows off one of the four playable races in the game, the Lizardmen.
The Lizardmen come from the jungles of Lustria and are servants of the Old Ones. This ancient race believes themselves the true protectors of the world, for they are the enactors of the Great Plan. However, they have been decimated for thousands of years because of the hordes that came through the Great Cataclysm. Some have survived this onslaught, and through their survival comes the hope of rebirth. So now they march to battle in hopes of showing their power, saving the world, and proving that the Lizardmen will not fade into history without a fight.
This is the third playable race that has been announced for Total War: Warhammer 2. The first two were the High Elves and the Dark Elves. One more secretive race remains to be revealed.
For those who are able to attend E3 2017 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo) in Los Angeles will be able to not only play a demo of the game but also get to experience the Lizardmen first hand.
The main story of Total War: Warhammer 2 focuses around the vortex that has long saved the world from evil. However, the vortex’s power is fading and with it comes new conflict. The High Elves want to preserve the vortex, the Dark Elves want to destroy it, and the Lizardmen want to preserve the will of the Old Ones. It’s up to you who you play as and what path you choose for this world.
