It’s a fact that hasn’t gone unnoticed by Creative Assembly, either. They’ve only gone and put a nod to him in the game’s upcoming DLC, The Warden & The Paunch. And there’s even a Witcher reference thrown in there for good measure. (more…) Total War: WARHAMMER II – The Total WAAAGH!

Creative Assembly has created fantastic cinematic in-engine trailers for its wonderful fantasy strategy game for some time, but the trailer for upcoming DLC The Warden & the Paunch somehow raises the game. Evoking a battle from The Lord of the Rings movie, the trailer shows an army of Mad Max-style goblin chariots bearing down on an army of elves, who clash in dramatic fashion. And then the golems sprout from the ground, and then a burning phoenix smashes into the ground, and then mages fire magic bolts into the masses, and then the two faction leaders, Eltharion the Warden of Tor Yvresse, and Grom the Paunch prepare to face-off. Basically, I can't wait to watch the series finale of HBO's latest.

But while we’ve got grimdark trash and genre-defining classics, there have been very few games set in Games Workshop’s newest setting. The Old World’s been dead a long time – and with few exceptions, nobody’s taken a real crack at Warhammer: Age Of Sigmar’s multi-dimensional mythos. Until this week, when Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster devs Frontier revealed plans to release a Mortal Realms real-time strategy within the next few years. (more…) Elite: Dangerous developer Frontier quietly announces Warhammer Age of Sigmar RTSMay 2, 2020 - EurogamerWe all know about Creative Assembly's wonderful Total War: Warhammer strategy games. Now, Frontier Developments has quietly announced it's making a Warhammer Age of Sigmar real-time strategy game. Buried within the investor relations portion of its website is a note that the Cambridge-based maker of Elite: Dangerous, Planet Coaster, Planet Zoo and Jurassic World Evolution has signed an intellectual property licence with Games Workshop to develop and publish an RTS for PC, consoles and streaming platforms for release in the financial year 2023 (the year ending 31st May 2023). This game is based on the popular fantasy tabletop Warhammer, specifically the popular Age of Sigmar era. The Age of Sigmar tabletop game first released in 2015, and is the successor to the discontinued game Warhammer. Frontier's game will be the first RTS set in the Age of Sigmar. Creative Assembly's Total War: Warhammer games are based on the "Old World", which is now replaced by the Age of Sigmar.

Check it out here: https://youtu.be/BG863qx5U3kTotal War: Warhammer II Debuts with 36% Less Players Than the Original on SteamOct 2, 2017 - GitHypCreative Assembly’s Total War: Warhammer had a huge launch last year when the turn-based strategy game debuted on Steam at #4 with a peak of 112k players. Now, after the success of the first installment, the team at CA are already back with a sequel. And with such a quick turnaround time, Total War: Warhammer II has surprisingly been even more well-received with better reviews overall than the original. The problem, however, is that far less have actually played the sequel. Over its launch weekend, Total War: Warhammer II once again brought the franchise back to the #4 spot on Steam, but peaked at 72k concurrent players – a drop of 36% when compared to the original. [caption id="attachment_294599" align="aligncenter" width="786"] Total War: Warhammer II's Peak Players per Hour on Steam via GitHyp[/caption] [caption id="attachment_294595" align="aligncenter" width="786"] Total War: Warhammer's Peak Players per Hour on Steam via GitHyp[/caption] Based on the reviews alone, Total War: Warhammer II has been considered the developers’ best work yet. But putting scores aside and focusing on player counts, it seems like Creative Assembly and Sega might have chosen to release the sequel a bit too soon. Releasing the follow up a little over a year after the last title is clearly an effort by the devs and publisher to strike while the iron is hot and before the original's player base drops to under 10k players an hour on the weekends. A move that would seem like the right sales call with the sequel’s strong #4 debut being a clear sign that fans still want more Total War. Yet, the drop-off in players is also a sign that many have already had their Total War fix and the successful launches of similar turn-based games recently such as Divinity: Original Sin II have also taken a large chunk of previous players.
