New High Elf units wreak havoc in latest Total War: WARHAMMER II gameplay video

The High Elves play a defensive game like no other race in the Warhammer world. Staggering their enemy with masterful archery on approach, tar-pitting them into a punishing melee, then counterattacking with elemental flying monsters, this ancient highborn race is a force to be reckoned with. See them in action right here:

This new gameplay video from Creative Assembly shows the High Elves in the player’s hands, defending against a bellowing host of Lizardmen warriors led by Mazdamundi himself, and reveals spectacular new units in action. Look out for:

  • The noble Pheonix and its Frostheart variant: fire and ice working in perfect tandem to decimate enemy forces
  • The Dragon Princes of Caledor: top-tier shock cavalry clad in dragon armour, making them immune to fire
  • The immensely-armoured Pheonix Guard: standing ready to strike down the largest beasts that the Lizardmen have to offer.
