Everyone has a relative or two that may be considered the black sheep of the family. Unfortunately, the High Elves of Total War: Warhammer 2 have a whole race that fit that description. A new trailer reveals the Dark Elves, and they have a score to settle with their high-and-mighty kin.
Under the catchy tagline "It only takes a cinder for a phoenix to rise," Creative Assembly and Sega take the wraps off the race, showing Witch King Malekith and his Morathi laying waste to a High Elven city, with Malekith showing off some of his potent powers in dispatching a garrison of High Elf warriors and archers with both a weapon and magic.
The Dark Elves will be one of the four playable races coming in the next installment of the Total War: Warhammer series. As with any Dark Elves from your lore of choice, they are self-serving, conniving, and quick to jump on and devour any leader that shows a hint of weakness. The game will be coming out on PC sometime in September.
