Beastmen are invading Total War: Warhammer regardless of purchase

, | News

The Call of the Beastmen DLC for Total War: Warhammer launches on Thursday, but even if you don’t buy it, the half-animal servants of chaos will show up in your games as computer-controlled enemies. Creative Assembly has detailed the goodies that everyone will get as a free content update to the game regardless of DLC ownership and it includes Beastmen as an A.I. faction in the campaign, an Amber Wizard hero with mount, four new maps to use in multiplayer and skirmish battles, and a new unlockable lord.

The Amber Wizard is a new unit for the Empire that can use animalistic battlefield magic. He also rides a flying griffin mount. The new lord, Sarthorael the Everwatcher, Lord of Change and Greater Daemon of Tzeentch, can be unlocked by playing the grand campaign and fulfilling his achievement requirements.

The Call of the Beastmen DLC is available on Steam.
