Although it's only just shy of a year old, it's great to know that we're getting a Total War: Warhammer sequel sometime later this year. Not that 2017 needed anymore content, but a sequel to one of the great strategy games of recent years is more than welcome. And the aptly titled Total War: Warhammer II from Creative Assembly will take place in new regions with a new story and feature four new playable races.
Including High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen, and a still to be announced fourth race. The new regions that will be explored include Ulthuan, Naggaroth, The Southlands, and Lustria. Or, in the King's English locations ranging from "enchanted isles, bleak hinterlands, treacherous swamps and perilous jungles."
The announcement came alongside a suitably epic cinematic trailer.
Even though it may seem a little bit premature to be talking about a Total War: Warhammer sequel, especially given how much content there is in the first game, Creative Assembly has stated that this new game will be the second part in a planned trilogy. And like a strategy game version of Voltron, all the in-game maps will eventually combine to form a super map. One capable of saving the day from the evil forces of whoever it was that Voltron fought. You'll have to excuse me, it's been a while since I've seen the show.
"Total War: Warhammer II represents the next step in our trilogy, our vision for the most incredible fantasy strategy series ever made," said Game Director, Ian Roxburgh. "The success of the first game has increased our ambition, we’re not only going to deliver a thrilling campaign in the sequel, but also an additional combined campaign, the biggest so far, for owners of both."
