SEGA and Microsoft Store Collaborate for NYC Event Launch of Total War: WARHAMMER II

To celebrate the release of Total War: WARHAMMER II for Microsoft Windows and PC gamers, the flagship Microsoft Store in New York will host the Total War: WARHAMMER II Launch Event. Hosted by some of Creative Assembly’s dev team, this broadcast event will feature interviews with the Total War game developers, a free-for-all multiplayer tournament with prominent community members, a Trophy awards presentation and numerous giveaways for those tuning in online. The event will take place in the flagship store’s Mixer NYC Studio, a digital production facility that features state of the art broadcast equipment and professional-grade gaming stations.

The second installment of the Total War: WARHAMMER trilogy is a game of titanic proportions, with four unique and fantastical factions mounting a campaign of conquest to save or destroy a vast and vivid fantasy world. “It’s fantastic to be working live with Microsoft on the eve of Total War: WARAHMMER II‘s launch,” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director of Creative Assembly.

During the live broadcast, the developers of the game will give new insight into the exciting new features of Total War: WARHAMMER II, the latest in a franchise that Creative Assembly has spent nearly twenty years perfecting.

Following the game spotlight and developer interviews, eight prominent gamers from the Total War community will join us in Mixer NYC Studio to compete in three rounds of epic free-for-all real-time tactical gameplay. These four-player throwdowns will take place on bespoke maps designed to funnel players into conflict, and will dish out points based on damage done, with the winner being the savviest aggressor or the last force standing. With the Mixer NYC Studio custom “Quad-Box,” viewers will be able to follow all four players’ gameplay simultaneously, for a unique perspective of the unrivalled scale of Total War’s multiplayer battles.

Viewers can tune in to the event online September 27 at 4pm EDT on www.mixer.com/microsoftstore and www.twitch.tv/totalwarofficial

Total War: WARHAMMER II will be releasing for Microsoft Windows on September 28, 2017. For more information, visit www.totalwar.com
