Sega and Creative Assembly announced the release of a sequel for one of the most successful games of last year. Total War: Warhammer II will hit the markets with a PC version. The sequel will be available sometime this year.
The first Total War: Warhammer game had its official release last year in May. Now, it will already feature a sequel. This will share the heroes and setting with the first game and with other titles from the Warhammer series of Games Workshop.
Total War: Warhammer II comes with both old and new elements
As the fans are already used to, both Warhammer titles allows them to manage and entertain exciting battles. What the sequel brings as novelty are new challenged on the continent of The Old World. This is a mysterious area featuring action which completes the story of the first game.
Among the characters you can play in Warhammer II, there are the Dark Elves, High Elves, or Lizardmen. There is also a fourth category available, but the developers Creative Assembly decided to keep it a surprise until a date closer to the release. Also, the new continent hosts many different landscapes, such as jungles or swamps. They will surely make the battles more interesting.
The games are part of a trilogy
Games Workshop are excited about the new title, especially as Sega and Creative Assembly worked together to create amazing worlds and to display breathtaking battles. Therefore, they must be proud to be part of the collaboration. However, the release of the second game in this franchise came as a bit of a surprise.
This happened because the initial discussion regarded Total War: Warhammer as a trilogy. Thus, nobody would have expected the second game to launch so close to the first one. Despite any rumors which arose with the second game, the developers confirmed. The series will feature a trilogy. Ian Roxburgh, the director of the game, emphasized this idea.
“Total War: Warhammer II represents the next step in our trilogy, our vision for the most incredible fantasy strategy series ever made.”
The success of the first game was the thing that determined the developers to be so quick with the second title. They were so excited that they even developed a campaign that will be available for owners of the both games. It will be available for free shortly after the release of the second game.
