Total War: Warhammer – New Race Announced

Posted on 18 Jul 2017

I guess the folks over at Creative Assembly wanted to really make sure people jumped on the Warhammer II band-wagon hype-train. Earlier today they’ve dropped the bomb that a new playable race will be handed out as a bonus to Total War: Warhammer players, for all of those who pre-ordered Warhammer II, before or during launch week. 

The Norsca Race Pack will be available August 10th to all early adopters, and will feature the playable Norscan barbarian race and two new playable factions; the War Mammoths and Skin Wolves. Once  Total War: Warhammer II launches this September 28th, both games will receive a huge update as well, on the house of course, which is pretty cool if you ask me. More details can be found below.

Official Press Release


New Race Announced for Part One of the Trilogy

Creative Assembly today announced that the barbaric Norscans will be the latest playable Race added to Total War: WARHAMMER. Anyone pre-ordering Total War: WARHAMMER II through a SEGA approved retailer* before release or buying in the first week on sale will receive the Norsca Race Pack for Total War: WARHAMMER free of charge.

The Norsca Race Pack will be playable in the first part of the trilogy from August 10th, ahead of Total War: WARHAMMER II’s release on September 28th.

In the frozen Norsca peninsula far to the north, barbaric tribes serve the dark gods through hunting and pillaging. Hardened by relentless blizzards and the monstrous beasts of this bitter wilderness, the Norscans exist only to lay waste.

This DLC introduces two new playable factions, led by unique Legendary Lords. Players can embark on monster hunt quests, command ferocious units including War Mammoths and Skin Wolves, and construct towering monoliths to court favour with the dark gods.

Shortly after the launch of Total War: WARHAMMER II, a gigantic update will be made available to owners of both games, for free. A new combined campaign map will enable players to conquer both the Old World and the New as any Race from both base games and any owned DLC Races. After its release, this will be further updated to include Norsca.

Total War: WARHAMMER II releases on September 28th this year and is available for pre-order now through Steam here:
