SEGA has revealed the new Total War Warhammer II campaign pack that players will soon be able to get, and it is called Shadow & The Blade. In this story thread the daemonic entity Tz’arkan has escaped the realm of chaos and has found a way to be joined with the dark elf Malus Darkblade. Knowing this has happened Deathmaster Snikch of a Skaven clan has been sent to investigate this situation and find a way to capitalise on it.
The Shadow and Blade campaign pack will include:
- 2 playable factions – Clan Eshin (Skaven) and Hag Graef (Dark Elves)
- 2 legendary lords – Death Master Snikch, Malus Darkblade
- 12 units; Highbeast Master, Bloodwrack Medusa, Master Assassins, Eshin Triads and more.
- Lore of Stealth (Skaven)
There’s also some free content which is listed below:
- Legendary lord – Repanse de Lyonesse (Bretonnia)
- Legendary hero – Henri Le Massif (Bretonnia)
There’s going to be an update as well which should see the enemy turn time reduced by 60% so you can play matches faster, though this depends on game state and PC specifications. In our original review of Total War Warhammer II Jim wrote:
For fans of the original game, Total War: Warhammer II is a great follow-up. Creative Assembly has created something both new and familiar, keeping that central core intact while transporting players to a part of this universe ignored in previous video game adaptations. That change of setting and the narrative drive of the Great Vortex will be enough for most, alongside a suite of smaller, more subtle changes. There’s also the exciting prospect of new armies, campaigns, and other features that are no doubt just around the corner.
