About this game
March your army of monstrous creatures into chaotic battles in the epic action-strategy Total War: WARHAMMER II. With this Steam PC key, you'll decide the fate of the Great Vortex in the sequel to the fastest-selling Total War game.
The game focuses heavily on turn-based strategy and real-time tactics, expanding over five continents of the New World – Ulthuan, Naggaroth, The Southlands, Lustria and Nehekhara. Your playstyle, your method of conquering – take on the game’s campaign or take the fight to fellow players and test your leadership skills and the strength of your army in online multiplayer matches.
CHOOSE YOUR RACE
A Millennia ago, a council of High Elf mages forged a vast, arcane vortex to draw the Winds of Magic from the world as a sinkhole drains an ocean, and blast the Daemonic hordes back to the Realm of Chaos. Now the Great Vortex falters, and the world again stands at the brink of ruin.
While powerful forces try to avert catastrophe, others seek to harness the vortex’s energies for their own bitter purpose. The race is on, and the very fate of the world will lie in the hands of the victor. Who will you choose: will it be Prince Tyrion, Defender of Ulthuan, and the High Elves as they desperately try to stabilise the vortex that is situated above their home continent – or maybe the Slann Mage-Priest Mazdamundi and his Lizardmen, who also seek to prevent cataclysm.
Perhaps you want to see the Great Vortex in the hands of an evil ruler, such as the Witch King Malekith and his sadistic Dark Elf hordes, who travel from Naggaroth and their labyrinthine Black Arks – or the rodent army of Skaven, led by Queek Headtaker, who stir in their foul subterranean tunnels awaiting any excuse to rise to the surface and become the dominant race.
Each of the four races in Total War: WARHAMMER II will be playable in single and multiplayer campaign, as well as custom and multiplayer battles. As the two Legendary Lords for each race all have their own unique campaign start positions, you’ll be able to play a 2-player co-op campaign with the same race. If you own both parts 1 and 2, you’ll be able to play in multiplayer as any of the races you own.
As one of the eight Legendary Lords featured in the four races from the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world, you must succeed in performing a series of powerful arcane rituals in order to stabilise or disrupt The Great Vortex depending on your race’s main objective.
Better still, if you own both Total War: WARHAMMER and Total War: WARHAMMER II, you’ll be able to use any of the races that you own in multiplayer modes – thanks to the Mortal Empires free DLC.
WAR AND CONQUEST
Explore the New World as you engage in statecraft and diplomacy to help build your empire, turn by turn. Where words are not enough, you’ll need to capture, build and manage settlements and recruit warriors to your armies. Legendary Lords and Heroes can be armed with mythical weapons and armour to lead your factions across the battlefield with great effect. Negotiate alliances or declare ‘Total War’ against those who stand between you and your objective.
When it comes to battle, prepare for an intense and exhilarating experience as you command thousands-strong legions of soldiers in tactical conflict. Harness powerful magic and unleash hell as monsters descend on you and your enemies. Victory is not always achieved by charging into battle with a large army; players must also utilise military strategies and lay ambushes to help turn the tide of combat.
Rise of the Tomb Kings
Witness a new race rise from their desert graves and join the fight in the Rise of the Tomb Kings DLC expansion. The Tomb Kings do not seek to influence the Great Vortex, and therefore do not engage in the race for control of it – but they can be played in the Eye of the Vortex campaign. Instead, they seek the nine cursed Books of Nagash, a search culminating in an epic battle at the Black Pyramid of Nagash itself. Each book grants a special campaign bonus, moving the player closer to an overall victory.
Money is not desired by the Tomb Kings, but Canopic Jars certainly are. Use these jars to awaken powerful units, unlock techs, perform rites and to craft unique items in the Mortuary Cult. Take advantage of your undead army’s ability to resurrect once more with The Realm of Souls. As more of your warriors fall in battle, the more souls enter the Realm. At three key thresholds, the Realm of Souls triggers a mass healing-wave among your skeletal units, each wave becoming successively more powerful.
After the final wave, the player also gains an army ability allowing them to summon a unit of mighty Ushabti on the battlefield.
Blood for the Blood God II
Add gore and horror to your WARHAMMER II battle experiences with the Blood for the Blood God II DLC expansion. Through the game’s Advanced Graphics Settings, players will witness blood spurts and gory spatter on unit models, limb and head dismemberment for humanoids and non-legendary characters and blood-drenched UI elements – as well as explosive gibbing from deadly mid-torso strikes, random global campaign events that generate greater carnage in battle, and the ability for zombies and skeletons to continue to fight after dismemberment.
Curse of the Vampire Coast
It's a vampire pirates' life for you in the frightening action-packed expansion Total War: WARHAMMER II - Curse of the Vampire Coast. Players will command towering constructs, ghastly pincered sea-beasts, ghoulish horrors and musket-wielding piratical zombie hordes in battle.
Only one who wields the Star-Metal Harpoon will tame the great Merwyrm Amanar, and become immune to its ravenous hunger. Find the Harpoon and invigorate the beast using the three verses of a secret, ancient sea-shanty.
