    Default Total War: Warhammer II announced



    http://store.steampowered.com/app/594570/

    Neat little Skaven tease.

    Also,
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Shortly after launch, owners of both the original game and Total War™ WARHAMMER II will gain access to the colossal new combined campaign. Merging the landmasses of The Old World plus Naggaroth, Lustria, Ulthuan and the Southlands into a single epic map, players may embark on monumental campaigns as any owned Race from both titles.

    This is a way larger map than I'd expect from TW:W 2. Looks like the third installment will go mostly to the North?

    I read this on the Steam Page

    Does this mean those who own Warhammer 1 will get Warhammer 2 for free? Or do we have to pay for it aswell? I hope we get it for free, since there was quite a lot of content missing from the first one

    EDIT: Wait nevermind, it says owned race-. I guess that means more money down the shaft....

    I knew Lizardmen would be in in it(jungle and all) but when the Carnosaur started to munch on Dark Elves I was abit confused for a second.
    Was trying to think of which creature High Elves/Dark Elves has that would fit that description but then I saw the scales and then I recognised it.
    And that Slann looks like he is about to bring the pain on the intruders.

    I'm very disappointed about this announcement - expected historical title. Also worth noticing is that this game wont have naval battles either since otherwise CA would def mention this in game description ( http://store.steampowered.com/app/594570/ ).

    The FAQ indeed confirms there won't be naval battles. (Which they have been saying since forever)

    Is naval combat happening?Only in autoresolve. Warhammer Fantasy Battles is principally a game about land warfare, so that’s where we’re choosing to focus our efforts in terms of full battle simulation. There are some new sea-related campaign features that we will detail in the future.


    I really don't see how you could have expected it to be anything other than Warhammer 2 though, it's been heavily signposted since even before the release of the first game! There is a historical game in the works, but they're not gonna cannibalise the current series.

    Nobody was expecting a Historical title, they have mentioned its still someway off numerous times.....hopefully because its going to based around a whole new engine. And hopefully based on the missing 1600's Pike and shot..

    This is disappointing news. Obviously for the fans of the Warhammer series I am happy for you guys.

    Rome 2 will of been released 4 years ago this September, Attila is over 2 years old and I still consider that to be a fragment of the Rome 2 series rather than its own original new title. Sounds like no historical games will be coming this year so we are going to run a stretch of 3 to 5+ years in between historical titles? That's extremely unfortunate.

    As someone who briefs these forums hardly ever these days, is Creative Assembly even doing right by the Warhammer series or does it still introduce the same stripped content, reduced options and depth, and streamlined gameplay experiences that plagued Rome 2 and Attila? Is there any sign that they've learned from the blunders and design decisions of Rome 2 and fixed them or anything?

    Warhammer is worse than any TW title in terms of game depth and campaign options. Battles are ridiculously fast - arcadey and sieges are a joke. Its not looking good if they will follow this formula when making the next historical title.

    Actually the historical title might as well come out next year. We do not know how far they are with the next historical title, they might have entered the development phase with it as we speak.
    And really, they haven't screwed you or any fan over since 1. they have been clear that Warhammer 2 was the next title(so why people thought this was gonna be historical title I have no idea), 2. As stated, they are already working on another historical and lastly 3. They aren't in any way, under any sort of contract to provide you with historical titles. CA are allowed to do other games then historical titles you know.

    Given that this game is similar, in terms of scope and relation to its predecessor, to Attila, I would expect it to be released sometime in autumn, probably in September. July and August are definitely out of the question, as companies avoid to sell their products, when the majority of their audience is on holidays. If I got it right, there are probably only three playable factions, with the Skavens being added as a pre-order DLC.

    Not according to CA. Last November, they said that the next historical game will take a couple of years to be published, so, even theoretically, 2018 is out of question. Personally, I suspect either late 2019 or early 2020.

    They said the same thing exactly two years ago, when they announced the first Warhammer game. Obviously, CA's definition of working on another historical title is very, very broad and probably also includes random brainstormings about what historical period they should focus on. I believe that the next historical game is in the same state, where roughly Warhammer was in summer 2013, when that computer screenshot was leaked, which revealed their future plans. I agree with the rest, though, why so many fans convinced themselves that these jungles were a reference to Mayas or Cambodians is beyond me, as CA and the datamine leak had made it pretty clear that what the next expansion was going to feature.

    EDIT: Chaos dwarves and ogres are almost certainly the faction DLCs for the third expansion, while the Tomb Kings would probably be the respective Wood Elves of Warhammer II. Not sure about the second DLC of Warhammer II. Kislev, maybe? They look like the most popular remaining human faction.

    Warhammer is way better than R2 and Atilla ever was, they seem really bland now to me both. But you got Medieval Kingdoms coming out with a campaign soon. Better medieval game than CA will probably ever make.

    Everyone on youtube was expecting a historical title. They outright stated that wh2 was on the way like a week ago.

    In any case, observations:

    2 Lords per faction.
    HE: Teclis (Video) Tyrion (Steam)
    DE: Malekirth (Video) and 95% sure Morathi due to prominent witch elves (Video)
    LM: Mazemundi and Kroc Gar (Video)
    SC: ?
    Each lord have a different start position (Q&A)

    Additional end-game race will probably be chaos daemons. The game revolves around the vortex which is keeping Deamons away, and its failing. Teclis was shown a vision how to dispel a vortex and the same vortex can be seen over uthulian. The 4th race is Skaven, and the rat had some blisters on it so there might be a plague focus although I'd guess they'll jut add the faction as a whole not just the pestilens tribe.

    Kroc Gar wasn't in the video. I thought so at first as well but the Old Blood doesn't have his gauntlet nor his Carnosaur so think it's just a regular lord/hero.
    And for skaven it depends if they will do their whole faction or just Clan Pestilence but Pestilence only has one character pretty much so I'm going with the whole faction which in that case, I will go with Thanquol and Queek. They will compliment each other nicely.

    Another boring edition of Warhammer... yay. The fan boys will no doubt tell us how they have no issues paying full price for a dlc expansion.

    CA's most hardcore fans get shafted again as they pump out more and more arcadey or now pure fantasy titles.
