What is the Total War: WARHAMMER trilogy?

Total War: Warhammer is part of Creative Assembly's grand strategy Total War series. Set in the grim, high fantasy world of Warhammer Fantasy, Total War: Warhammer pits many unique races in a struggle for domination of the Old World. Soldiers clash with magic and monsters, as factions are locked in battle. But beyond this conflict lurks a larger threat: The forces of Chaos descend from the north to bring ruin and destruction, at the behest of their dark gods.

Total War: Warhammer II takes the battle west and south to the New World across the sea, where new races fight for control of the Great Vortex. Total War: Warhammer II is a standalone game, fully playable on its own. However, players who own the first game or DLC will find that it carries over and can be combined with the second game, for one epic experience in campaign and multiplayer.

Total War: Warhammer III is the final installment in the trilogy, releasing in early 2022. Explore the Far East and the maddening Realm of Chaos. The Daemonic forces of Chaos threaten to bring the apocalypse. Standing in their way are the stalwart warriors of Kislev and the great eastern empire of Cathay. Once again, this third game will combine with the previous two for one epic experience.

Both games can be purchased in a number of stores (eg: Humble Store, GameBillet, physical stores), but require a Steam or Epic account to play. In order for game content to combine, players must own all games and DLC on the same store (Steam or Epic).
