Creative Assembly announced today that their highly acclaimed Total War: WARHAMMER will be getting a new content pack called The Grim & The Grave in September 1st.
The DLC will add two new Legendary Lords (with their own quest chains, magic items and skill trees) two new Lord types, five new battlefield units, and eighteen Regiments of Renown.
In addition to those, which are exclusive for purchasers of the Grim & The Grave DLC pack, the company plans to release more free content, which will include the introduction of an all new Legendary Lord, the Vampire Count Vlad von Carstein and five new battle maps.
Following the best-selling Call of the Beastmen, the first Lord Pack for Total War: WARHAMMER introduces two new Legendary Lords from Warhammer Fantasy Battles – 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 addition, both the Empire and Vampire Counts unit rosters are being expanded with two brand new units each. The Knights of the Blazing Sun, the zealous Flagellants and versatile Free Company Militia join the ranks of the Empire, while the vampire counts will see their undead hordes imbued with dark magic by the gruesome Corpse Cart and volatile Mortis Engine. The rosters of both factions are also further expanded by the addition of Regiments of Renown, unique unit variants with special traits and abilities, whose prowess in battle have immortalized them in the annals of the Old World.
