Sega announced that the newest entry in Creative Assembly’s strategy series, Total War, titled Total War: Warhammer II will be coming to PC on September 28.

Total War: Warhammer II  will introduce four new playable races to the story campaign, Lizardmen, High Elves, Dark Elves, and an unknown race.

In addition to the release date, players who pre-order the game, or purchase within the first week, will receive a free “Race Pack DLC” from the original Total War: Warhammer. As of right now, this content is yet to be revealed, but it will be available at the game’s launch.

Lastly, there are two editions for players to chose from, Serpent God Edition and a Limited Edition.

The publisher details the two:

Serpent God Edition:

An artefact fit for a god, or at the very least a devoted Slann Mage-Priest, the Serpent God Edition comes in a scaled turquoise presentation box, replete with stone-effect glyphs modelled on Lord Mazdamundi’s headpiece, detailing the temple-cities of Lustria. Treat it with reverence, lest you sully its magnificence. The Serpent God Edition comprises:

  • Race Pack DLC for Total War: WARHAMMER: a new, currently unannounced Race Pack for the first game in the trilogy. Adds a new Race, two new Legendary Lords and a host of new monstrous units and unique mechanics. Will be delivered and playable before Total War: WARHAMMER II is released.
  • Stone Effect Puzzle Sphere: This relic of the Old Ones can only be opened by the wise, the dextrous or the cunning.
  • Carved Bone-Effect Totems: Secreted inside the cryptic sphere is a selection of bone-totems hailing from the exotic jungles of Lustria.
  • Art book: A weighty collection of exclusive concept art, the thematic starting points for the many warriors, environments and settlements in Total War: WARHAMMER II.
  • Embossed Metal Case: Protect your game discs from Lustrian perils with this lovingly-sculpted metal case.
  • Exclusive Insider Guide: A printed strategy guide for Total War: WARHAMMER II, this book is packed with insider information to get you started with the new playable races, offering invaluable advice to help you dominate the Great Vortex and master the battlefield.
  • Sticker Sheet: Mark your territory with exclusive artwork of the four Races vying for control of the Great Vortex.
  • Canvas Map with Lizardmen Stylised Artwork: Plan your campaigns of conquest as every great leader should with this gorgeously illustrated canvas map of the New World.
  • Saurus Blade Necklace with hidden 4GB USB: A finely-detailed replica weapon of the mighty Saurus warriors, and the perfect vault for your most sacred digital scrolls.

Limited Edition:

Alongside the extremely rare Serpent God Edition, a Limited Edition will also be available at select retailers. This version includes the metal case and Insider Guide detailed above in the Serpent God Edition.

The Serpent God Edition will be sold exclusively at the Total War website, with a limited number to be produced.
