Total War: Warhammer brings magic to Creative Assembly’s storied series

Dwarves use runes instead

It feels like forever ago that Total War: Warhammer was announced (nearly four years), but it’s nearly here, and set to release next week. For those of you who have been following along, here’s a great detailed overview of how magic works in the game, which is one of the newest mechanics for the series alongside of heroes.

Some spells are pretty standard (fire and brimstone type stuff), and others are really out there, drawing upon the strong lore of the Warhammer Fantasy line. Expect our review before launch.
