Total War: WARHAMMER DLC plans revealed

Creative Assembly has outlined their plans for Total War: WARHAMMER DLC.

The DLC will include new units, new Heroes, Legendary Lords, a free campaign expansion and a new playable race. Not bad at all.

“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. “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.”

The planned Free DLC is highlighted in this image which was posted on the wiki.

The update also reveals the paid DLC although these are subject to change according to CA. These release plans are as follows:

Lord Packs

Themed on a specific rivalry or conflict from the Warhammer Lore, Lord Packs contain brand new Legendary Lords and supporting units and characters for existing playable races. They typically include:

  • 2 new playable Legendary Lords with their own narrative quest chains, campaign bonuses and quest items.
  • 2 new Lords to serve as generals.
  • A new unique Unit.
  • New elite Units of Renown*.

Units of Renown’ are elite versions of otherwise already existing units. They might have upgraded stats, different arms or armour, or an unusual ability or two. Typically they’ll reflect the theme of the Pack, probably having been instrumental in the conflict. Given their power and rarity, you might only be able to field one unit of them at a time, or they may be subject to other restrictions.

Race Packs

Race Packs introduce a new playable Race to the game, either as a first appearance, or adding a full Unit roster, Heroes, Lords and playable Legendary Lords to non-playable existing races in the core game. They might typically include:

  • New Legendary Lords with their own narrative quest chains, campaign bonuses and quest items.
  • New Lords to serve as generals.
  • New Race-specific Heroes (where applicable).

A supercharged version of a Race Pack, Campaign Packs not only contain a brand new Race for use in the Grand Campaign and Multiplayer, but also add a new Challenge Campaign to the game. Themed on an epic event from the Warhammer Lore, these self-contained Campaigns will present a distinct and challenging scenario. Contents might typically include:

  • A new Challenge Campaign featuring the Pack’s new Race; a self-contained mini-campaign, with a set of escalating victory conditions to suit both new and very experienced veteran players alike.
  • Adds a new playable Race to the Grand Campaign and Multiplayer game.
  • New Legendary Lords with their own narrative quest chains, campaign bonuses and quest items.
  • New Race-specific Heroes.
