Sega Europe announced today that Creative Assembly is working on Total War: WARHAMMER II, an improved sequel to the epic Warhammer Fantasy strategy title that took Steam by storm last year. Gamers can expect new playable races, such as the High Elves, Dark Elves and Lizardmen, and a campaign that will push the Total War formula to its limits.
In a Total War campaign like no other, players will struggle for dominion over the ailing Great Vortex that has swirled for millennia above the elven homeland of Ulthuan. Performing a series of arcane rituals, each race must save or disrupt the Vortex according to their motivations – a struggle culminating in a cataclysmic endgame. Territorial conquest is no longer enough… this is a race for control that will define the fate of the world!
Total War: WARHAMMER II will be available on Steam later this year, and owners of the first entry in the series will be able to enjoy a combined campaign map featuring both the old and new world regions at no extra charge (content will be available shortly after release)
