Total War: Warhammer - Norsca announcement

 
Since launch Total War Warhammer has been completely transformed, with both free and paid for DLC releasing for the title to bring new factions, mechanics and even races to the game. Now has come the time for Norsca to be brought into the game, with a new expansion that will release on August 10th. 


This new expansion will be available for £7.99 (£7.19 when pre-ordered) or for free with pre-orders of Total War: Warhammer 2. Norsca will allow players to play as the Norsca and Wintertooth tribes, with two new legendary lords, three new hero types and a large selection of unique units and abilities. 

Like every new faction for Total War: Warhammer, the Norscan tribes will come with their own unique mechanics and victory conditions, with their faction relying on their allegiance to the Dark Gods and their ability to hunt and potentially recruit some of the Old World's most terrifying creatures to your cause.  


In the far north, between the Chaos Wastes and the Sea of Claws, lies Norsca. Fanatical servants of the dark gods, they will stop at nothing to prove their primal might, in a relentless hunt for worthy foes and fresh raiding grounds.

 

 

This DLC will only be available for Total War: Warhammer, though Norsca will eventually come to Total War: Warhammer II in its combined campaign map. Creative Assembly is also releasing Free-LC for Total War: Warhammer alongside this new expansion.

Not content with gouging their customer base with the DLC practise of T:W1, they then announce TW2 to replace it within 12 months and before even that's released we're back to DLC gouging.

Makes me sick. "this thing is finished, so we'll remove it from the game, include it in the download and charge you money for a 100k unlock file".

Yes I'm old, but I remember when you brought a game and you got, a game. All of it. Day one DLC is the spawn of satan.Quote

Not sure if you have gotten this right, this is DLC for Total War: Warhammer 1, not 2. IE, it is a new DLC for the previous game that was recently developed and will effectively tide players over until the next release. At least those that do not want to pre-order can just buy the DLC if they want it.

While Total War: Warhammer does have a lot of DLC, pretty much all of it was created post launch and each change to factions have completely transformed how the game plays, like any good expansion should.

I do agree that the Chaos Warriors day-1 DLC for TW Warhammer was crap, at least they offered it for free for the first week (perhaps longer) after launch so that people could see reviews etc.

Beyond that Total War Warhammer also had free DLC content with every DLC release, be it new lords for existing factions, new units and other content. They also released the Bretonia DLC for free, which is a fantastic add on.Quote

This is DLC for Warhammer 1. It's also free if you pre order Warhammer 2.
They haven't gouged anybody. People are just so overwhelmingly naive and expect the world. Game Development ain't cheap. They don't make cut content. All there DLC is created after the main game. They then take a small team to work on DLC. That's not cut content.

Even if you don't pre order and you buy Warhammer 2 within the first week, you get this free as well. How you see this as a bad thing I don't understand. It's not a pre order bonus, it's just an early adopter bonus since they are changing the way they are doing these to prevent people like you from calling them out. They are doing this to be more "fair" for the consumers even though they've pretty much always been.
