A month ago the final DLC for Total War was announced: Warhammer 2, and now Creative Assembly has shared a closer look at what will be there, as well as the free DLC that will be given away.
First, the paid DLC Silence and fury strengthens the beast men. They are a faction that needs a rebalancing for a while, and the legendary Mr. Taurox, the Bull Brass, will get several new units for his list: doombull lords, warrior heroes, tuskgor chariots and two monsters absent from the list. army of beast men, the four-armed ghorgó and the jabberslythe. This is Lewis Carroll's nightmare beast from the trailer.
The other half of The Silence & the Fury is an army of lizards led by Oxyotl the Unseen, whose new troops are oracle skink heroes, chameleon pursuers and two other monster units, the charming and the wild troglodyte who spit venom. Both armies obtain three additional renowned regiments, veteran versions of their new units.
As with the previous Warhammer 2 DLC, each legendary legend gets a campaign with their own starting position and some unique mechanics. Taurox gains momentum through acts of killing and destroying cities, which can be spent to spread their devastation. Oxyotl can sneak through enemy territory, develop silent shrines on the map, and "fight threats to the natural order of things." You also get extra XP to fight your favorite enemy, Chaos.
As usual, there are gifts coming Full access to war along with this paid DLC, and Creative Assembly calls it a "massive free upgrade." The beast-men get a great bray shaman and ogre mercenaries who will be recruitable by all existing armies. These products may be a preview of an ogre faction coming to the Total War: Warhammer 3 DLC, but we'll have to wait and see. Apparently, we can only hire a limited number of ogres at a high price, with the risk of being eaten by anyone who does not pay their dues. There’s also a legendary gentleman who joins the dwarves, which Creative Assembly says it will reveal tomorrow.
The Silence & the Fury will be released on July 14, as well as the free DLC. In the meantime, Total War: Warhammer 3 is expected in late 2021.
