Sega and Creative Assembly have revealed the new Norsca race for Total War: Warhammer 2 and the bonus available if you buy the game before release. So read on for the Total War: Warhammer 2 Norsca Race Pack pre-order details as we try and make sense of the somewhat convoluted news.
So Total War: Warhammer 2 will be released on September 28th, 2017. And if you pre-order the game before that date, or buy it during the first week of sale, you’ll receive the Norsca Race Pack for free. For the first Total War: Warhammer title. Not the new one.
And you’ll be able to use them in the first Total War: Warhammer game from August 10th, 2017.
Norsca is a reworked faction for the Old World with new units including unique new monsters, 2 new Legendary Lords with unique skill trees, quest chains and unique starting positions. They include commanding War mammoths and Skin Wolves, and being able to build towering monoliths to gain the favour of the dark gods.
Barbarians with war mammoths can never be a bad thing.
After the second Total War: Warhammer title has launched, there will be a major update for both existing titles for free, which will include a new combined campaign map to let players conquer both the Old and New World as any race from both base games and any DLC racers you might own. And this will then be updated again to include the Norsca for all players for free. In the old and new games.
Make sense? Buy the new game early, and you get to enjoy the new race in the old game, until the new race arrives in the new game for everyone.
Oh, pre-orders. How much fun you bring.
If that’s not enough for you, then there’s also the Total War: Warhammer 2 Serpent God Edition. Coming in at £99.99, you’ll get:
