Sega Europe announced today that the first part of a trilogy based on the Game’s Workshop tabletop game Warhammer will see the light of day on the 28th of April, 2016 with Total War: Warhammer. The game, developed by Creative Assembly, will have players do battle in the beloved Warhammer Fantasy setting. Players who decide to pre-order will receive access the Chaos Warriors Race Pack which include three new playable hero characters called Legendary Lords and enables players to play the powerful Chaos Warriors in the game’s grand campaign. There’s also a new quest chain for each of the three Legendary Lords, exclusive to people who pre-order the game. In addition to this, players will have access to an armory with Chaos-flavored magic items.

Players are also able to order a special collector’s edition known as the High King Edition, modeled after the Book Of Grudges. The box will include the Chaos Warriors race, a dwarven drink horn and a physical metal ring and an insider guide, amongst other shiny pieces of goodies. Players who might not want to shell $100 for the High King edition will be able to get a limited edition. The limited edition comes in the exact same case as the High King Edition as well as the insider guide for Total War: Warhammer. If you want more info (and a good look at all the stuff inside the box) you can surf on over to the Total War: Warhammer limited edition page.


Quick Take

Hm. Seems like they really want you to pre-order Total War: Warhammer. I got to hand it to them; the game does look pretty promising and the engine seems to be capable of some pretty impressive stuff. The items you get when you order the High King Edition look really cool as well. It also looks like they’re in this for the long haul, what with Creative Assembly working on a trilogy of Total War: Warhammer games.

I've been playing games since I was just barely able to walk, and I never really stopped playing them. When I'm not fulfilling my duties as senior staff writer and tech reviewer, I'm either working on music, producing one of two podcasts or doing freelance work.

    As much as I love Warhammer, after Rome 2 there’s no way I’m buying their game without all dlc included and a minimum 75% discount.

    Yes, go ahead. Announce the first fucking race pack before the game is even released. Jesus fucking Christ, I knew that they would do their best to squeeze out as much money from the consumers as possible the second they teamed up with Games “Let’s double all prices again, lol” Workshop, but locking an entire faction behind a pre-order is simply disgusting.

  • Chris Anderson

    Yeah, they really seem to want people to preorder. Do what you like, I’m waiting for reviews until I decide. I remember Rome 2 all too well.

  • Suriel

    Well, to be fair their own website says that preorders will include the first DLC namely the Chaos race pack. So if you don’t preorder, you can still *cough* buy Chaos as a race.
    A bit like DLCs in the last relatively good TW, which for me was Shogun 2 (after their usual tinkering phase…)
