Total War: Warhammer II announced, coming to PC in 2017

The Total War franchise has been a big one on the PC over the years, with Total War: Warhammer released in May 2016, but now Sega Europe has announced its sequel - Total War: Warhammer II, and that it'll be here before the end of the year.

Creative Assembly are back in the developer chair for Total War: Warhammer II, with four new continents to battle on: Ulthuan, Naggaroth, The Southlands and Lustria. CA teases that Total War: Warhammer II will be so big, the map covers the entire geographical areas of the first two games.

Total War: Warhammer II will give gamers the ability of playing four new races (High Elves, Dark Elves, Lizardmen, and another race that CA and Sega haven't revealed just yet), with each of them including their own unique campaign mechanics, and armies of Legendary Lords, Heroes, monsters, troops, and siege weapons. CA will also push out a post-launch update that will let people play through any campaign as any owned, or playable race from the first game in the Total War series.

Total War: Warhammer II is due out later this year on Windows, and most likely Linux in 2018 - if there are no delays between now and then.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
