    Wrong. Rome 1 and Med 2 were no where near the same game like Empire and Napoleon was. The latter used the exact same animations as their previous game and had practically the same mechanics just refined so it was obviously an expansion. The other had virtually new animations for everything and added various features along with the battles being vastly different in speed to where the combat was far slower then the more arcade like speed in Rome 1.
    So... Some new animations, a few new campaign features, and slower battles = New Game.

    But a lot of new animations, several new species, doubling the size of the map, some new unique campaign features for each faction, new magic, and so on = Overpriced expansion pack?

    Imagine this. Total War: Pike and Shot comes out. The first game has the entirety of Europe, plus lots of DLC.

    Total War: A New World comes out a year later. It has North and South America, all the Native factions, plus some early European explorers. New campaign mechanics, new animations, new units, new cities, etc. It's a standalone game with roughly the same, if not more content as the first game. Is it an expansion pack?

    I think the only reasonable answer is "Who cares?" If you want to call it an expansion pack so badly, you can have that word. But the fact of the matter is, given the information we have about it, it has either the same or more content than the original TWW base game. I paid a price for Warhammer 1, and seeing as the second game seems to have an equivalent level of content. it's entirely fair that I pay an equivalent price. Why would it not be? (Whether that's a fair price for a digitally distributed game in the first place is an entirely different, irrelevant topic)

    If you can't afford more than $60 a year on video games, I feel for you. Im serious, that sucks. But you not being able to afford it is not a reason for them to lower their price.

    Is the campaign map going to be completely revamped to be immersive, intriguing, and strategic?
    Or is it still going to be a streamlined and simplified console game?

    I loved watching the soldiers fight eachother in m2tw.
    There no time for that anymore. Only clicking now.

    Dude really? Look at the minotaurs smashing into infantry or dragon ogres swinging halberds not to mention aerial animations. Its not just guys fighting guys. My only complaint is the couched lance animation.

    The more i think about it the better this army appeals to me. It will be an amazing army with croq-gar, saurus and 3-4 dinosaurs tearing chunks out of the enemy.

    I had a Dark Elf army for Warhammer but I dabbled with High Elves too and I always wanted to start a Lizardmen army.
    So you can guess how I feel about this next game hahaha.

    Oh by the way, german amazon spoiled warhammer2 release date - 25.12.2017 ( https://www.amazon.de/Total-War-Warh...3A+Warhammer+2 ) Now it could be just placeholder but Old World Edition was 'leaked' on Amazon to release Feb. 28th and it was correct. So this is probably the furthest date we could possible get w2..probably sooner.

    I really don't understand the uproar of some TW fans. This isn't exactly news. TW Warhammer was announced as a trilogy, even the exact planning of DLC and expansions were leaked last year. And whats even more frustrating, is that this total war game is actually good and gives the franchise some new air to breath in, after the blunders and blandness of the last titles.

    I bought Attila, Rome 2, Empire and Napolean and i think i have never spent so less time on a TW title or even a game than on those.

    25th december is a holiday and a closed day for most stores here. Also where is the sense in releasing something AFTER (or on depending where you live) christmas.

    I call bs and set my sights on summer.

    Gamestores tend to have a placeholder date, since it's confirmed for 2017 they probably chose a date at the end of the year and will change it when they know more. The only thing going against that is that 25th is so specific, but it's also a really bad choice for release They'll probably aim to fill the summer draught as Påsan say's, but my bet is on early fall.

    Only 600 hours ? I hope you gave the game a bad review.
