The Creative Assembly’s take on the long running Warhammer fantasy universe, Total War: Warhammer, will launch exclusively for PCs next year on April 28, publisher Sega revealed today. The game will be, as has long been suspected, the first game in an ‘epic trilogy.’
Sega also revealed the pre-order bonuses for those who get the game early: pre-ordering will net you the Chaos Warriors Race Pack, which includes three new playable Legendary Lords. These Legendary Lords unlock “the corrupted and powerful Chaos Warriors” as your race in the game’s Grand Campaign.
“Featuring unique new mounts, bloodthirsty units, and monstrous creatures, this Race Pack also brings with it a brand new, narrative-driven quest chain for each Legendary Lord, and an armory of twisted and cursed magic items,” Sega said.
That’s not all, either. An extremely limited ‘High King Edition’ of the game will also be produced, and it should be of great interest to Warhammer fans, coming as it does with:
A large ornate presentation box, featuring metallic gold and 3D sculpted detail in the iconic Dwarfen style, modeled on the legendary ‘Book of Grudges.’
Grudge Ring, which is modeled on the item from the Warhammer universe, and is made of metal with a rotating inner band.
Slayer’s Whetstone Pendant: Made of genuine, functional whetstone and inscribed with the talismanic Master Rune of Spite.
A genuine Dwarfen Drinking Horn & Stand, which can hold a full pint and comes complete with its own unique metal display stand.
Canvas Map: Plan your campaigns of conquest as any High King should with this gorgeously illustrated canvas map of the game world.
An Integrated Artbook, which is integrated into the High King Edition’s impressive packaging, and features art on exclusive concepts.
Metal Case: Protect your game disks from the perilous dangers of the Old World with this exclusive metal case.
A printed strategy guide for the game.
