Total War: Warhammer has sold more than 500,000 copies since it’s launch on Tuesday

Breaks Franchise sales records on Steam





BY AMIT BARAN ROY   |   Total War: Warhammer, the latest turn based strategy real time tactics game developed by Creative Assembly is currently having a record breaking launch week. The game which was released 3 days back on Tuesday, has already sold more than 500,000 copies breaking the Total War franchise sales records on Steam. The game is now considered as the “fastest-selling Total War title on Steam” ever.


In a press release today, Creative Assembly Studio Director Tim Heaton said:

Total War: Warhammer has already proven itself as a runaway commercial success and more importantly we know our players are really enjoying the game,

We have been regularly topping 100k concurrent players.


This is easily proved by the game’s fantastic Steam Stats page which records a peak of over 98,910 concurrent players on May 27 (i.e, today), occupying the 3rd place right after Dota 2 and Counter Strike: Global Offensive.

He further said, "The team paid particular attention to stability and performance throughout the game’s development and thoroughly enjoyed creating new ways to play Total War within Games Workshop’s stunning Warhammer Fantasy world. We’re very proud of it, and it’s wonderful to see the game receiving such a great reception from critics, Total War veterans and new players alike."


More than tens of thousands of players had already hogged the servers on launch day which have resulted in few server and connection issues earlier. But Sega has been excessively supportive who didn’t waste any time to release the Day One Hotfix immediately after launch.

Players should also note that those who manage to buy the game before 6 PM BST on May 31, will also be entitled for a free Chaos Warriors Race Pack along with the game. As said earlier, the ‘Race Pack’ will allow players to get their hands on three new playable legendary lords along with new Chaos mounts, units, monsters, quests, magic items and abilities with a new horde campaign playstyle.


Heads Up:- Total War: Warhammer is available at $59.99 from Steam.
