Introducing the winged horrors of the Vampire Counts in Total War: Warhammer

Vargheists and Terrorgheists emerge from the darkness for the Vampire Counts army in Total War: Warhammer

As the release of Total War: Warhammer -- developed by the epic Creative Assembly -- draws closer, more information about the armies and gameplay are being released. Recently, some trailers for some of the horrors in the Vampire Counts army have been released, and we're pretty terrified!

Vargheists are the manifestation of the darkness in a Vampire's soul. They soar above the battle, swooping down to rip through the lines. They come from the catacombs of the Von Carsteins castle and have been twisted and overexposed to the power of Dark Magic. 

Circling above the battlefield are the mighty monstrous Terrorgheists. Reaching the size of dragons, these giant bats are bound to the Ghoul Kings. Their primary attack is a devastating Death Shriek which is enough to paralyze any foe with fear.

Total War: Warhammer will feature armies of the Empire, Dwarves, Green Skins (Orcs and Goblins) and the Vampire Counts in turn-based real-time strategy battles. The Chaos Warriors are being released as a character pack.

The game will be released on May 24th and will be available on Windows, Linux and Mac OS. It is currently available for pre-purchase on Steam for £39.99 / $59.99 and will include the Chaos Warrior character pack.

It all started with an Atari ST and here I am, all these years later, still loving video games! Indie games are where my heart is and where it'll stay. The world of indie video games is ever evolving and such an interesting arena to be a part of!
