After many, many teasers Total War: Warhammer 2's Mortal Empires campaign has now finally arrived. It brings with it a combined campaign that features both of the maps from Total War: Warhammer 1 and 2, as well as all of the Legendary Lords and the factions they lead. The end result is an absolutely massive world full of unique factions to befriend, conquer, or some combination of both.

Besides the combined map, Creative Assembly has also added a whole bunch of quality-of-life improvements, bug fixes, and balance adjustments. If you're interested in Total War: Warhammer 2 changes in specific you should head over to the official website. On the other hand, if you're wondering how all of the old races have been rebalanced in order to compete with the new and shiny ones, you'll find the second set of patch notes over at the Total War subreddit.

If you own any Total War: Warhammer 1 DLC you won't have to buy it again in order to play on the Mortal Empires campaign map, it will be automatically added to your account. Similarly, if you own the "Blood for the Blood God" pack for Total War: Warhammer 1, it will now be active in Total War: Warhammer 2 as well. The only exception is Norsca as its release in Total War: Warhammer 2 has been delayed due to some technical issues.

It is also worth mentioning that while the patches themselves will automatically download, the Mortal Empires campaign will not. So if you would like to download it for yourself, or just learn a bit more about it, you should head over to Steam. And finally, allow me to leave you with the rather awesome "Blood for the Blood God 2" trailer. Enjoy!
