Total War: Warhammer Free DLC content plans

In the months following launch, players will be handed free new units, Heroes, Legendary Lords and a new playable Race.

“With both Rome 2 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 brand director Rob Bartholomew.

“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 image below will give you an idea of the free content plan.

Other content to expect in the future can be found in detail over on the Total War blog, but a quick rundown on what players can expect from forthcoming paid-DLC Campaign, Race and Lords packs before the second game in the trilogy arrives is blow.

Lord Packs

Contain new Legendary Lords and supporting units and characters for existing playable races. Typically include:

  • Two new playable Legendary Lords with their own narrative quest chains, campaign bonuses and quest items.
  • Two new Lords to serve as generals.
  • A new unique Unit.
  • New elite Units of Renown (elite versions of otherwise already existing units).
