November has been announcemageddon for CA, to be sure. With the Empire Divided Campaign Pack for ROME II plus our first Total War Saga title Thrones of Britannia both in the works, it would be easy to think we’re in some way sidelining WARHAMMER II, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Released in under a month on the 28th September, we are pleased to say that at this point Total War: WARHAMMER II is the most pre-ordered Total War game to date.
“We’re in the final stage of development now and very excited by the comments coming out of our closed testing and mock reviews,” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director, “loads of love for the new features, races and the sheer volume of gameplay. Great to see that expectation reflected in the number of pre-orders being placed, it really helps motivate us for that final push.”
With the game now nearing release, system specs and a range of new graphical features to enrich players’ experiences in the New World can be revealed.
- Improved Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO)
- New volumetric fog system which thickens the air, producing god-ray effects
- New sharpening filter
- Impressive wet-look surfaces, appropriate to certain models and model features
