If you don’t know, Total War: Warhammer II has launched today, and to mark the occasion, SEGA has published a pretty awesome 360° trailer – showing off lots of awesome in-game footage.
If you don’t know about 360° videos, they are videos that allow you to drag the screen and adjust the camera in any direction. It makes for a much more immersive experience and the Total War games are a perfect use for them, because there’s so much happening on-screen at any one time, that you miss a lot of the experience in standard trailers.
What’s more SEGA has confirmed that there will be a free “gigantic update,” which will bring players an entire new campaign map, which will allow players to conquer both the Old and New Worlds as any race from either base game or any owned DLC Races.
Total War: Warhammer II is available now through Steam: http://store.steampowered.com/app/594570
Here’s the press release from SEGA:
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN TOTAL WAR: WARHAMMER II WITH THE 360° HIGH ELVES LAUNCH TRAILER, PREMIERING TODAY
The second instalment in Creative Assembly’s epic Total War™: WARHAMMER® fantasy trilogy is out now for Windows PC, and players can take a journey across the New World directly into the midst of battle in the Launch Trailer out today. This spectacular 360-degree trailer, viewable on YouTube but also compatible with VR headsets and mobile devices, allows viewers to fly above the vast expanse of the New World and its varied locales, drop into the heart of intense battles surrounded by hundreds of enemies, and dive deep below the surface of the world into a Skaven stronghold.

Total War: WARHAMMER II’s rich narrative, depth and variety of gameplay has already won critical acclaim and players around the world are now embarking on their own campaign across the breadth of the New World. Game Director Ian Roxburgh said: “We’re delighted that the second game is scoring higher with critics than the first and are looking forward to fans playing the game for themselves. We’re always keen to hear fan feedback and that will form an integral part in our plans for upcoming free content and the third title in our trilogy.”
Shortly after the launch of Total War: WARHAMMER II, a gigantic update will be made available to owners of both games, for free. An entire new campaign map will enable players to conquer both the Old and New Worlds as any Race from either base game or any owned DLC Races.
