Total War: Warhammer II is announced for release in September, and will be getting two special editions.
Creative Assembly’s much-anticipated strategy sequel, Total War: Warhammer II, has been confirmed for release on September 28th, 2017. The news came at the PC Gaming Show held in the run up to this week’s E3.
Set in a brand new region of the Warhammer world, the game adds four new playable races to a new narrative-led campaign.
Players who pre-order the game, or buy it during release week – through a Sega approved retailer – will receive a free Race Pack expansion for the original Total War: Warhammer. The expansion, which has yet to be detailed, will be released and playable before the arrival of Warhammer II in August.
Also available to pre-order is the collector’s Serpent God Edition, which contains the aforementioned Race Pack DLC, an art book, stickers, and a map, among other goodies.
Serpent God Edition contents
- Race Pack DLC, featuring currently unannounced content for Total War: Warhammer
- Replica stone-effect Puzzle Sphere
- Replica carved bone-effect Totems
- Art book illustrated with exclusive concept art
- Embossed metal case
- Insider Guide: A printed strategy guide
- Sticker Sheet featuring artwork of the four races vying for control of the Great Vortex
- Canvas map with Lizardmen artwork
- Saurus Blade necklace with hidden 4GB USB drive
The Serpent Edition is available exclusively in limited numbers via the Total War website for the princely sum of $150. A Limited Edition will also be available at selected retailers that will include the metal case and Insider Guide.
If you’re at E3 this week, you can play Total War: Warhammer II – along with a range of other games from Sega and Atlus – on the show floor.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
