The follow-up to Creative Assembly’s popular Total War: Warhammer series finally has a release date, and it’ll be headed to a PC near you on Sept. 28.
Total War: Warhammer II introduces four new playable races, and those who pre-order the game from an “approved” SEGA retailer, will receive a free “Race Pack DLC” for Total War: Warhammer. The Race Pack DLC adds a new race, two new legendary lords and more units and mechanics.
