The Laboratory mode coming to Total War: Warhammer II next week
New experimental game mode lets players change the rules
SEGA has announced plans to release a new experimental game mode The Laboratory as a free update for Total War: Warhammer II on December 14, 2017.
Designed in collaboration with Intel and aimed at those with powerful gaming PCs, The Laboratory is a Skaven-themed Custom Battle playground. The Laboratory's numerous sliders allow multiple game variables to be tweaked, pushing battles in new directions. Players can massively ramp-up unit sizes, remove the bounds of gravity, and increase impact force tenfold to create scenes of pure chaos. With sixteen different settings to tinker with, players can even save their best combinations of tweaks to use again or share with friends.
The Laboratory offers a possible glimpse into the future of Total War technology, primarily leveraging Intel’s latest multi-core processors to drive additional performance beyond the original game’s design parameters. Any PC can attempt to use The Laboratory, but your performance will vary wildly so be warned that lower end PCs may massively struggle, or crash, when sliders are pushed to the max.
You don’t have to have the latest Intel processor to play The Laboratory.
Total War: Warhammer II was released earlier this year.
