Total War: Warhammer III launches on PC Game Pass with an epic metal music video

February 18, 2022

Total War: Warhammer III launches today on PC Game Pass, and Xbox ANZ have celebrated the launch with something I don’t think anybody could possibly have predicted.

Aussie heavy metal band Battlesnake have covered ‘Death is Like the Winter Chill’, a song from Warhammer, in a music video that I’m pretty sure most would describe as ‘going hard’. There’s keytars, great moustaches and an impressive commitment to the bit, directed by music vid veteran Anthony Rose and filmed at Oxford Art Factory

Elliott Hitchcock from Battlesnake, no doubt resplendent in face-paint and battle shorts, very normally said “Battlesnake was forged deep in the fiery pits of the underworld, so we share a mutual respect with those who wage battle in the Realm of Chaos.”

“When we’re not shredding onstage, we’re normally wielding swords, so any game with swords is a game worth celebrating. We’re hyped to pay tribute to the legendary Warhammer  community and hope that our celebration brings some new Warhammer metal-heads to our shows in future to watch us get sweaty”
