Total War: Warhammer Gets Release Date, High King Edition and New Trailer

on October 22, 2015 2:47 PM

Sega and The Creative Assembly announced today that the upcoming Total War: Warhammer will be released on April 28th, 2016, exclusively for PC.

Alongside the release information, we also get wind of the pre-order bonus, that will come in the form of the Chaos Warriors race pack. It’s likely that it’ll become available for a price for those that didn’t pre-order as Sega normally does, but if you pre-order you’ll get it for free. Incidentally, the trailer at the bottom of the post focuses exactly on the warriors of Chaos.

Pre-orders are already available on Steam.

Moving on, we also get info on the High King Edition, modeled after the Book of Grudges. Here’s what it will include.

  • Grudge Ring: This quality metal ring, with a rotating inner band is perfect to spin whilst brooding over grudges and plotting revenge. Six numbered bevels on the inner hoop allow the ring to double as a fully functioning die.
  • Slayer’s Whetstone Pendant: Made of genuine, functional whetstone and inscribed with the talismanic Master Rune of Spite, this hefty trinket would be treasured and jealously guarded by any self-respecting Slayer, who aims to keep a keen edge on their blades.
  • Dwarfen Drinking Horn & Stand: Toast your victories with this beautifully decorated drinking horn; wrought with icons and sigils in the Dwarfen craftsman style. Suitable for both display and practical use, it can hold a full pint and comes complete with its own unique metal display stand. Please note, liquid cannot be ‘sipped’ from this drinking horn, it may only be ‘quaffed’.
  • Canvas Map: Plan your campaigns of conquest as any High King should with this gorgeously illustrated canvas map of the game world.
  • Integrated Artbook: Integrated into the High King Edition’s impressive packaging is a large art book featuring exclusive concepts.
  • Metal Case: Protect your game disks from the perilous dangers of the Old World with this exclusive metal case.
  • Insider Guide: A printed strategy guide for Total War: WARHAMMER; this book will help get you started with the game and offers invaluable tactical advice to help you dominate the battlefields of the Old World.
