Total War: Warhammer 2 has just been announced with a brand new cinematic trailer to get fans excited about the upcoming sequel. The Total War series of RTS games has been a big hit with fans of the genre, and its combination with the Warhammer franchise definitely got people excited when it was first released last year. This sequel will arrive some time later this year, with no definite release date given in the new trailer.
Total War: Warhammer was praised by fans and critics, receiving a 4.5/5 in our review which said “Total War: Warhammer is the most interesting, most polished, and most enjoyable Total War game to date. Depending on which camp you come from you may have a slight learning curve, but its definitely worth it as this game has plenty to sink your teeth into if you’re a fan of strategy, high-fantasy, or both.”
The Steam page is already up for those who would like to add it to their Wishlist. The page describes the game by saying “Millennia ago, besieged by a Chaos invasion, a conclave of High Elf mages forged a vast, arcane vortex. Its purpose was to draw the Winds of Magic from the world as a sinkhole drains an ocean, and blast the Daemonic hordes back to the Realm of Chaos. Now the Great Vortex falters, and the world again stands at the brink of ruin. Powerful forces move to heal the maelstrom and avert catastrophe. Yet others seek to harness its terrible energies for their own bitter purpose. The race is on, and the very fate of the world will lie in the hands of the victor.”
There’s also an FAQ for the game, though it seems to have been taken down due to high traffic.
Total War: Warhammer 2 will hit PC later in 2017.
