Hot on the heels of Total War: Warhammer's last DLC, Call of the Beastmen, Sega and Creative Assembly have revealed the next DLC for the popular game, The Grim & the Grave, scheduled for release on September 1.
The content pack, which sells can be pre-ordered on Steam right now for a 10 pecernt discount of $7.19, will add units and Legendary Lords to the Empire and Vampire Counts. Here's a quick breakdown:
- Volkmar the Grim (Legendary)
- Arch Lector (Lord Type)
- Knights of the Blazing Sun
- Free Company Militia
- Helman Ghorst (Legendary)
- Strigoi Ghoul King (Lord Type)
- Corpse Cart
- Mortis Engine
Both sides will get new Regiments of Renown unit variants.
As part of the update, all players will get Vlad Von Carstein, a Legendary Lord for the Vampire Counts, and five new multiplayer maps as part of Creative Assembly's Free-LC program (meaning you won't need to buy The Grim & The Grave to get them).
Check out the announcement trailer for some of the back story and a look at the units in action.
John Keefer posted a new article, Total War: Warhammer unveils next DLC as The Grim & The Grave
Total Warhammer could not have come out at a better time. The tools available to modders to create their own regiments of renown have the workshop populated with dozens of unique regiments already, and it's really up to each players discretion as to how and what they want to add. The coming mechanics to improve that just make it sweeter.
Already players can recruit provincially, so a swordsman company raised in Altdorf wears blue/red, while just next door the player can raise a statistically identical company of troops but they'll be wearing the black/red of Wissenland, the Red/Yellow of Talabecland or the Black/Yellow of Averland.
It makes campaign armies that much more awesome, as I deploy my Averland & Wissenland raised armies to the badlands to fight the orc invasions and my Imperial or Nordland armies fight Chaos. My Stirland and Talabecland armies work against Undead.
I can't wait for Tilea, Kislev, Estalia, Border Princes to get their own DLC and flesh them out fully as their own factions. The Border Princes especially I hope get attention, as they have hallmark slavic gear like Kislev's russian.
I look forward to a "Complete" edition of this game, someday :)
