Sega and Creative Assembly have announced their final DLC expansion for fantasy strategy sequel, Total War: Warhammer 2.
Titled “The Silence & The Fury” this latest add-on will pit two of the game’s favourite factions against one another with Lizardmen battling the chaotic Beastmen. It will officially on July 14 and is available to pre-purchase on Steam (regular price, £7.99).
As with past DLCs for Total War: Warhammer 2, it will include Legendary Lords who have their own campaign objectives and mechanics when playing the game. The Silence & The Fury also adds new units to an already huge roster. Fans of the Warhammer Fantasy tabletop game – and Age of Sigmar – should recognise some of these powerful creatures.
Here’s a quick summary of everything included in the upcoming DLC:
- Two unique Legendary Lords leading their own factions:
- Oxyotl, He Who Hunts Unseen, for the Lizardmen
- Taurox the Brass Bull leading the Beastmen
- Powerful new units and Heroes for both the Lizardmen and the Beastmen, including:
- The mighty Jabberslythe and other monsters for the Beastmen
- Flying snakes, blind monsters, and new Skinks for the Lizardmen
- A unique campaign narrative for both factions, with special mechanics on the campaign map.
The team at Creative Assembly are teasing that there are some bonus game elements coming as part of a free update. New Lords are coming to the Dwarfs and Beastmen faction, as well as mercenary unit. There’s a chance this could tie into the upcoming Total War: Warhammer 3.
In our Total War: Warhammer 2 review at launch, we scored the superb strategy title a 8/10:
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.
It’s mad to think that the game is approaching its fourth anniversary in September. Total War: Warhammer 2 has enjoyed a steady stream of DLC and free updates, vastly expanding upon the base game.
