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.

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 Flamespyre Phoenix 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 Phoenix Guard: standing ready to strike down the largest beasts that the Lizardmen have to offer.

Keep abreast

    Yet another in an already long line of excellent pieces of DLC for what has shaped up to be a living classic in the realm of PC games. If you like the game, you'll almost definitely like this, because who doesn't want to wear a bunch of skulls like you shop at some kind of Tiffany in hell and, maybe more importantly, who doesn't want to hang out with a bunch of dragons and war mammoths, slaughtering enemy after enemy with nary a thought of going home? Just me? Didn't think so.

  • Albion Online Review

    Albion Online, the brand new MMO PvP game, from the Berlin-based studio Sandbox Interactive, is portrayed as a sandbox MMO with a player-driven economy and robust PvP. However, it falls short on both its promise and entertainment value.

  • Marooners Review

    Some gamers have come to expect, with undue regularity, the world from a gaming experience. What about fun? Simple, intuitive escapism? Why must a title always be adorned – or beset, perhaps – with pseudo-sophisticated ornament? Some might find the frenetic gameplay off-putting (it is optional, anyway), but the fun factor prevails, and especially with good company, Marooners hits the mark.
