Total War: Warhammer releases today, and to kick things off, The Creative Assembly has released behind-the-scenes look at the game's development.

Total War: Warhammer video takes a behind-the-scenes look at game design

The video goes into how the team brought the tabletop fantasy game to the Total War series, how it expanded upon the strategy franchise's gameplay and mechanics, and the team's determination to "bring Warhammer to life in a way no one has attempted before.”

Reviews for the game went live last week and critics seemed pleased going by early scores.

With many jumping into the game at launch, servers were having some issues dealing with the load. At launch, there were over 40,000 folks playing the game on Steam. We just checked a minute ago: there are over 73,000 as of press time.

The Creative Assembly provided a workaround, so if you are affected, give that a read.

Total War: Warhammer is available for PC alongside the free Chaos Warriors Race Pack.
