Creative Assembly have released a new trailer for Total War: Warhammer II which introduces the huge and terrifying War Hydra. Tamed, or at least made less bad tempered than the feral hydras, by the Dark Elves of Naggaroth these beasts are a fearsome opponent. Watch a War Hydra in action in the trailer below as it deals out punishment on High Elf forces…
War Hydras are the result of magical alteration of an already fearsome beast by the evil and cunning Dark Elves. Hidden away in the Obsidian Peaks of Naggaroth the Dark Elves manipulate the genes of these creatures using dark enchantments and the corrupting Winds of Chaos to create the ultimate fighting beast.
In combat, War Hydras are protected to an extent by their thick scaly hide, they can devastate whole regiments just from their monstrous size and many soldiers have been ripped apart or swallowed whole by one of the beasts five heads.
The five-headed War Hydra is a flame spewing blur of snapping jaws attached to a colossal scaly frame. To witness such a monstrosity on the field of battle is to face your nightmares made manifest.
Total War: Warhammer II will be released on the 28th September on PC.
