Total War: Warhammer Gets a New Free DLC Today
It was announced by Sega, that the next stage in the Total War: Warhammer free content schedule drops today as Vlad von Carstien takes to the field for the Vampire Counts. A new Legendary Lord complete with his own skills, abilities and quest chain will be accompanied by five new battle maps for all current owners of the game.
Check out the Free DLC trailer of Total War: Warhammer, showcasing the DLC’s features with some gameplay footage:
“The first – and arguably greatest – of the Vampire Counts is a nigh-unrivalled practitioner of the Lore of Vampires, whose thirst for the throne of the Empire rivals even that of Mannfred himself.
FreeLC wise, this update enables you to begin a Vampire Counts campaign with a new Legendary Lord. Bolstering the ranks of the Midnight Aristocracy, Vlad Von Carstein has returned from the dead to attend to matters personally. His dire enemy Mannfred is not best pleased by this new turn of events, but has agreed to a suspension of hostilities in light of the threats from the new Emperor and the power in the north. The first – and arguably greatest – of the Vampire Counts, it was Vlad who tainted the human aristocracy of Sylvania, thereby forging a kingdom of the undead in the heart of the Empire. Vlad is ready for duty in the Grand Campaign, and Custom and Multiplayer battles.
Along with Vlad, there are five new unique battle maps to conquer your way across, which are the sites of various quest battles for Vlad and the Legendary Lords from the new The Grim & The Grave DLC. These maps are also available for use in Custom and Multiplayer battles.
New paid DLC also arrives today as The Grim & The Grave adds Volkmar the Grim for the Empire, and Helman Ghorst for the Vampire Counts. Alongside this , The Grim & The Grave also adds two new lord types to the game with the Vampire Counts receiving the fearsome Strigoi Ghoul King, and the Arch Lector, mightiest of all warrior priests, joining the Empire.
In total, this new DLC contains:
- Two new Legendary Lords…
- …with new quest chains, magic items and skill trees
- Two new additional Lord types
- Five all-new battlefield units plus variants
- 18 elite Regiments of Renown
Alongside the DLC and Free content, a new update for Total War: WARHAMMER has also been released today offering a number of tweaks, fixes and balance changes.”
