"Part lion and part eagle, these noble monstrous cavalry are ridden by only the most renowned knights of the Empire," Sega said in a statement. "Clad in ornate plate armor, their densely muscled frames enable them to thunder into combat, tearing their foes limb from limb and spreading fear among the enemy ranks."

Total War Warhammer is in development at The Creative Assembly (Total War: Attila, Alien: Isolation) by way of a partnership with Warhammer license-holder Games Workshop.

In a press release, Sega said Total War: Warhammer will deliver "hundreds of hours" of gameplay--and two additional expansions will follow. Total War: Warhammer is the first in a three-part trilogy, Sega said, noting that two standalone installments--as well as further DLC packs--will be released later.

This all combines for the "single largest Total War experience ever," Sega said.

No release date for Total War: Warhammer has been announced.

Other new Total War games in development include Total War: Battles Kingdom and Total War: Arena.
