Total War: Warhammer has sold more than half a million units since its release at 8am on Tuesday, setting a franchise record for the fastest selling Total War title on Steam, SEGA has announced.

"Total War: Warhammer has already proven itself as a runaway commercial success and more importantly we know our players are really enjoying the game," said Studio Director, Tim Heaton. "We have been regularly topping 100k concurrent players."

He added: "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."
