Creative Assembly has provided some new details about the next DLC coming to Total War: Warhammer II. It’s a Lord Pack, and will feature the Wood Elves faction – but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The latest devblog also details a new content scheme that will change the amount of new free stuff you get from here on out depending on how much Total War: Warhammer stuff you already own.

First, though, the Lord Pack. Creative Assembly says the next DLC will indeed be a Lord Pack and it will ‘focus’ on the Wood Elves, who you’ll remember from the Realm of the Wood Elves DLC expansion for the original Total War: Warhammer. Previous such packs have featured opposing Lords from two different races, but it’s not yet clear from which race the second lord will come. The pack’s accompanying update will feature a third legendary lord, and they’ll be free as before, but accessing them works slightly differently now.

If you only own the Total War: Warhammer II base game, the arrival of the new Lord Pack will mean you’re getting a new free hero, plus the game update with various and sundry bug fixes and rebalancing changes. That’s it – it’s still free, but base game owners are no longer getting a free legendary lord when updates roll out.
