Creative Assembly has revealed the release date for Total War Warhammer II. The game will be ready to roll on September 28th.
Total War Warhammer II
The latest game in the well-known series adds a host of new content including four new races and a big new story.
Playing as one of 8 Legendary Lords across 4 iconic races from the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, players must succeed in performing a series of powerful arcane rituals in order to stabilize or disrupt The Great Vortex, while foiling the progress of the other races. Each Legendary Lord has a unique geographical starting position, and each race offers a distinctive new play style with unique campaign mechanics, narrative, methods of war, armies, monsters, Lores of Magic, legendary characters, and staggering new battlefield bombardment abilities.
In addition to today’s release date notice, fans were told about a trio of editions they can choose from.
The Serpent God Edition is a physical collector’s edition that comes in a special box. In addition, owners receive:
- race pack DLC
- stone effect puzzle sphere
- carved bone-effect totems
- art book
- insider guide
- canvas map
- 4GB USB made like a Saurus Blade necklace
The Limited Edition is also a physical version of the game. It comes with the metal box and insider’s guide, however, minus the rest of the contents of the Serpent God edition.
Of course, there is also the Standard edition, a bare bones game-only version that can be downloaded on release day.
