Now Playing: Total War: Warhammer II Lizardmen In-Engine Trailer

Following the game's announcement in March, Sega today released the first in-engine trailer for Total War: Warhammer II.

The spotlights the Lizardmen, who are described as "ancient, cold-blooded warriors" who fight on the behalf of the Old Ones. The Lizardmen are one of the four playable races in the game, joining the previously announced High Elves and Dark Elves. The fourth will be announced later.

Sega also confirmed today that Warhammer II will be playable on the E3 show floor in June. For the first time ever, this year's E3 is open to the public.

While still promising to offer the classic Total War style of gameplay, Sega and Creative Assembly claim Warhammer II features a "new style of narrative campaign." Each of the four races is competing to either save or destroy the Great Vortex over Ulthuan, and you'll have to rush to do so before anyone else can. This "struggle culminat[es] in a cataclysmic endgame."

Warhammer II does not yet have a specific release date, but it's due out sometime before the end of 2017. A third game is also expected in the future, as this series has been announced as a trilogy.
