Total War: WARHAMMER Editions FAQ


April 11 2017

What different versions of Total War: WARHAMMER are there?

Total War: WARHAMMER is available in the standard edition, Limited Edition and the extremely rare High King Edition. In addition, February 2017 saw the release of the Old World Edition.


In February 2017 we released a new edition of Total War: WARHAMMER with selected high street retailers. The big news is that it came with a new playable race – Bretonnia. Why should you care if you already own Total War: WARHAMMER? Because you can download the Bretonnia Race Pack for free then too!

A contrast of lowly peasant masses and proud knightly orders, the feudal kingdom of Bretonnia features a host of powerful units and is lead into battle by a choice of three playable Legendary Lords; King Louen Leoncoeur, Alberic of Bordeleaux and the Fay Enchantress.

We’ve answered some of the most likely questions below.

What’s in the Total War: WARHAMMER – Old World Edition? It is the original game, plus the Bretonnia Race Pack and an exclusive novella, ‘The Prince of Altdorf’ by Total War Writer Andy Hall.

Does it come with all the DLC? Is it a GoTY or Gold version? No, it’s the original game and the Bretonnia Race Pack, and all the free-LC we’ve released to date of course. There are no plans to release a Gold or GoTY version of the game currently.

Why did you release this Edition? It’s a great opportunity to mark the inclusion of a great and iconic Warhammer Fantasy Battles race, and a great point for anyone who hasn’t dived into the Total War: WARHAMMER game yet to get on board.

What do existing players get? If you already own Total War: WARHAMMER, your game will be updated, and you will see the Bretonnia Race Pack available for free download in the Steam store. However, ‘The Prince of Altdorf’ novella is only available with physical copies of the game.

What are the differences between these editions?

The High King Edition is modelled on the legendary Book of Grudges, and ships in a large ornate presentation box, featuring metallic gold and 3D sculpted detail in the iconic Dwarfen style.
