Sega and The Creative Assembly have released the first in-engine gameplay demo of their upcoming Total War: Warhammer.
The gameplay demo shows off the Battle of Black Fire Pass, which serves as just one of the many Quest Battles we can expect from Total War: Warhammer. The demo offers a glimpse at the diversity of battlefield units, spells, war machines, monstrous creatures, and fantasy environments that will all appear in the final game.
All of the footage taken from this demo is from a pre-alpha version of Total War: Warhammer, so keep in mind that this is still a work in progress before you decide to complain about something on your favorite forums or on social media. As a pre-alpha demo, we think it looks rather good, especially the large, monstrous units.

Unless they have a new engine this is going to be an unplayable, single-threaded mess for months after release with bugs and AI/pathfinding issues that never get fixed.
The Warscape engine was outdated and unfit for purpose years ago.
