Total War: Warhammer's Throgg in battle

Norsca and its accompanying hordes of warp-twisted creatures arrived on PC last week alongside a massive free update. The Empire AI has been given the entire province of Reikland in order to ensure they actually reach the end-game, Chaos forces now replenish more quickly and are able to subjugate Norscans more easily, some of the underutilized Legendary Lords have received much needed buffs, and the list goes on for quite a while.

If you're on Mac or Linux and you're looking forward to trying out the demonic vikings, you'll be glad to hear that your version of Total War: Warhammer will receive the Norsca update on August 24th. This will also include the 30 new regiments of renown - powerful and unique units for the Beastmen, Bretonnia, Chaos Warriors, Norsca, and Wood Elves factions. Much like the PC version, all of these extra units will arrive free of charge.

Speaking of which, if you preorder or purchase Total War: Warhammer 2 within the first week of launch you will be given the Norsca DLC for free. If you're not interested in the 'sequel', however, there will also be an option to simply purchase Norsca on its own. To find out more about Norsca and their fluffy pets you should head over to Steam as Creative Assembly has done a really good job of detailing the faction and its roster of units. And finally, here's the intro trailer for Norsca, just to set the mood. Enjoy!
