Creative Assembly Details Total War: Warhammer's Post-Launch Content

Meanwhile, there will also be paid DLC.

Lord Packs will include two playable legendary lords, with their own quest chains, bonuses, and items, Race Packs add either a new race or full unit rosters, heroes, lords, and legendary lords, and Campaign Packs are "supercharged version of a Race Pack" which contains a new race and a new challenge campaign. More details on each of these packs can be found here [http://wiki.totalwar.com/w/Total_War:_WARHAMMER_Future_Content_Blog].

"With both Rome II and Attila we were able to release playable factions, new formats and even a free campaign expansion as a thanks to players for supporting Total War," said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director at CA, in a press release. "The Warhammer Fantasy Battles World is gigantic, and we're looking forward to exploring it over the forthcoming trilogy. But that incredible cast of characters and monsters also provides us the chance to make lots of interesting Free DLC to support our games over time."

Total War: Warhammer releases on May 24.

Same as with Rome Total War 2 and Attilla then.

Hope it's not as bad as it was with Atilla however the Free-lc seems quite limited.

I'm hedging bets and think they're going to do the Bretonnians for free after a while because they are already in the base game.

Well thats a shame, because the Lizardmen and Skaven are probably the most original factions in WFB, unlike everything else ripped from what passed for pop culture at the time.

Also, Doomwheels [https://1d4chan.org/wiki/DOOMWHEELS].

I bet that the 'New Playable Race' is the Warriors of Chaos preorder bonus.
@008Zulu it's actually not. it's most probably Bretonnia or wood elves thats the flc faction. Chaos is day one dlc

I'll be completely unsurprising and say I want Neferata and her vamps as a playable faction in their own right. They're pretty much my favorites in warhammer fantasy.

That said a bigger map with more of the world would be nice too. The Total Warhammer map isn't that big, but then again I guess I've been spoiled by the warhammer fantasy mod for CK2.

There is a warhammer fantasy mod for CK2? Looks like i got no reason to buy this game now and will just play that!

Yeah it has a lot of factions available with some bending and extrapolations added to make things playable(and in some cases so they have any flavour at all). Certain factions aren't added due to the issues with portraying them though(such as the skaven and most things not on their current map). A new big patch for CK2 was out not long ago however so they're working on incorporating it in addition to other things so the mod isn't compatible with that one yet. Not much of an issue granted since paradox puts old patches on steam for those that need to go back to an older one.

The mod is fun and tends to lead to some rather nutty scenarios as is usual for CK2. I know that from experience given what happened to one of my last ones.

Yeah almost certain it will be Bretonnia. Their army is the least complex and has one of the smaller unit rosters, so makes sense they will be the free inclusion.

As much as people will gripe about this stuff, I think most of the race packs etc should hopefully be good value given the how unique each of the base factions are. The legendary Lords and Units on the other hand, probably will be a rip off.

@Strazdas I don't see why you wouldn't still buy Total war warhammer if you're playing CK2. They're 2 totally different games.

This actually doesn't look too horrible. Free dlc are always nice, however insubstantial they might be. On top of that new Factions in this game will most likely be different enough to actually be somewhat worth their price. Not Rome 2's "Pay 15 Euros to play these people with spears wearing slighly different clothes to the other people with spears."-dlc.
That being said I still heavily doubt that I am going to buy Total War - Warhammer any time soon with both Stellaris and Hearts of Iron 4 coming out around the same time. Those should be more than enough to scratch my Grand Strategy Itch for quite some time.

The Warhammer setting lends itself to be diverse, if they drop the ball with this I'll just give up on them honestly.

Allthough they've already let it slip by only going with such a small number of factions in the base game, they're pawning it off with the notion that this other dlc and these other games are being funded by the current dlc.

However it irks me a little that they've dialed back the FreeLC this much.

Empire, Dwarves, Greenskins and Vampire Counts are the 4 confirmed races.

Maybe we will get Tomb Kings. That'd be nice. Might be too much to hope for Nagash himself as a playable Lord. Still, Bone Giant vs Chaos Giant.

I know of the vampire counts(albeit I don't understand the blight mechanic as I didn't think they were like the scourge from warcraft). They're likely gonna be the main ones I play when I eventually buy it. I'd just prefer to play lahmians rather than carsteins thats all.

Also wouldn't Nagash be a tad too OP? Then again for the sake of mechanics, I guess he'd be nerfed, but I'd expect Settra as head of any tomb kings faction if they made a map with them available. Wonder if they'd include Araby in that, but then if they did that, they'd pretty much have to invent lore for them since from what I understand there's barely anything for them.

Oddly enough, the only factions I care about are the lizard and rat people. You can keep your metal heads, pointy ears and big fat guys.

I want my fantasy genre to be pure and traditional.

Lizardmen and Skaven are lame in concept they are not unique fantasy creatures they are just anthromophized animals. (Though admittedly the Lizardmen looks badass)

Besides If you want new original creatures in Fantasy look at Morrowind or Planescape Torment or Burning Crusade World of Warcraft.
