Total War: Warhammer 2 battle screenshot for The Prophet and the Warlock DLC

[Update]: Total War: Warhammer 2's next DLC, The Hunter & The Beast, will be greatly improving the Empire faction, as well as adding some lovely new units for the Lizardmen!

If you're like me and you mostly avoided playing as the Skaven or Lizardmen due to their lack of options, I am very happy to announce that Creative Assembly has now released both an update and The Prophet and the Warlock DLC in order to beef up both their roster and abilities. The update has also brought in some rather nice changes to Bretonnia, so if you're up for experimenting with races you might not usually play, this would be a pretty good update to start doing so.

On the paid side of things, The Prophet and the Warlock has added two new legendary lords with their own unique skills and items, a variety of new units including the Rattling Gun Weapon Teams and fire-breathing Salamanders, as well as numerous new technologies and rituals to take advantage of. Perhaps most importantly, the DLC has also added the ability for Skaven to develop and launch what is essentially nuclear weapons! And yes, they're about as devastating on the battlefield as you would expect!

If you're wondering what all of this nonsense might look like in-game, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. Give it a look, it's a really fun one:

As far as the free update is concerned, Total War: Warhammer 2 has now added a new Terradon-based legendary lord for the Lizardmen, a quest to awaken the incredibly powerful Lord Kroak, as well as the ability for Skaven to expand their empire below enemy cities. Bretonnia has also received a brand new vow system, new missions and items for their legendary lords, new technologies to play around with, a much better and more interesting Green Knight, and the list goes on for a while.

You can find all of the details over at the official website, but if you're just interested in The Prophet and the Warlock DLC, you should head on over to Steam instead. Have fun with the new units!
