Total War: Warhammer's mammoth unit from Norsca

Instead of a standard pre-order bonus Total War: Warhammer 2 will be giving everyone who purchases the game before or within the first week of launch the newly revealed Norsca faction. More importantly, you won't have to wait until Total War: Warhammer 2 finally arrives in order to play as the savage northerners - they will be coming to the original Total War: Warhammer on August 10th!

If you're interested in seeing what sort of beasts and creatures demonic vikings like to bring with them on raids, you should check out the recently posted gameplay teaser down below. Its not very long, but it will give you a pretty damn good idea of what sort of playstyle Norsca is aiming for. Have a look:

Much like the factions that came before it, Norsca will bring with it two distinct tribes with their own Legendary Lords (Wulfrik the Wanderer and Throgg), a large array of new units including werewolfs and ice-belching trolls, new mechanics such as Berserk and Frostbite, as well as the ability to align yourself to a specific god of Chaos! Long story short, Norsca is currently looking more fleshed out than the Chaos faction itself!

You can find out more by heading over to Steam, and I would highly recommend you do so because Creative Assembly has detailed every single aspect of Norsca, from the lowliest of units to the mightiest of Legendary Lords. And finally, it is worth mentioning that even if you don't purchase Total War: Warhammer 2 or the Norsca DLC the faction itself will be present on the campaign map and in multiplayer. So while you might not be able to play as them, you will at least be able to create some nice mammoth carpets to decorate your capital.
