The Warhammer hordes will be marching in the New World on 28 September, when Total War: Warhammer 2 is launched. Creative Assembly have issued the release date, along with details of pre-order stuff and a special Serpent God edition.
People may recall that the first Warhammer game had Chaos as a pre-order faction. That didn’t go down too well, and they were eventually made free for anybody who bought the game within the first week. Well, this time there’s another faction pack DLC as pre-order incentive, but for the previous game.
Anybody pre-ordering Total War: Warhammer 2 will get the as-yet-unannounced faction for the first Warhammer; the one discussed in Creative Assembly’s latest “what our teams are up to” post. This will, obviously, be released separately as well. It’ll be out before September and adds “a new Race, two new Legendary Lords and a host of new monstrous units and unique mechanics”. Just as with Chaos, anybody buying the game within the first week will receive this faction pack.
The game is up on Steam for purchase. If you want to get fancy (and have cash to spare) you can purchase the Warhammer 2 Serpent God edition, full of all kinds of extras. Extras like these, in fact. Plus the same race pack as every other pre-order.
You can see an image of the Serpent God edition beneath the contents summary. Yes, they cleverly hid the logos of the fourth faction (it’s totally Skaven).
