The team at Creative Assembly have a big new chunk of DLC coming to Total War: Warhammer this month on the 28th July. The Beastmen are appearing from their woodland haunts and will be threatening The Empire and beyond in this Campaign & Race Pack…
This set will give you the new Beastmen race for the Grand Campaign along with all manner of new units to start despoiling the lands of The Empire.
- New Beastmen Race in the Grand Campaign
- Two New Playable Legendary Lords
- New “An Eye For An Eye” Story Campaign
- Hordes of New Unique Units, Monsters, Heroes, Magic and Game Features
You can see the look of the brutal Beastmen in the trailer above and I have to say the thought of using them on the Grand Campaign map sounds exciting!
One of the other big things is the Story Campaign you get with this as well which allows you to play as Beast-Lord Khazrak The One Eye as he battles against Boris Todbringer, his arch-nemesis, on a condensed and personalised campaign map following the struggle between the two and other Beastmen clans.
The Beastmen play like a mix of the Greenskins and the Warriors of Chaos. They will have no fixed base of operations, leading to a roving murderous spree where you will be laying low cities and either reaping the rewards to bolster your forces or erecting despicable monuments to your Gods.
They will also have a similar mechanic to the Greenskins in terms of their infighting where you must keep fighting to keep them ‘happy’. Another aspect of their gameplay from the tabletop which has been translated over is the use of Ambush as their preferred tactic where you will be catching other armies unawares.
As well as getting the brutal Khazrak The One Eye there will also be the second Legendary Lord Bray-Shaman, Malagor The Dark Omen who will be able to wield the Lore of the Wild.
You can find out more on the Steam Store Page and learn about the units in detail.
Will you be getting this?
