(Or the one where CA WENT TOO FAR!)
The Old World has evolved massively since Total War: WARHAMMER first Launched. With the proliferation of new Races, sub-factions, Legendary Lords, monsters, magic, Mammoths and more, the original Races and Legendary Lords have become increasingly embattled.
So the chief request from players – and one that’s grown in volume with every DLC and FLC release – is that we bring the old-timers up to a fighting trim equivalent to the new guys.
Your wish is our command. This is the update that supercharges the foundation races.
All the old Legendary lords get bonus campaign buffs and new, extra skills trees. The Empire, under AI control, starts with an entire province, giving it a much stronger start. The Warriors of Chaos have a whole slew of tweaks and changes, increasing their campaign momentum and enabling easy vassalisation of Norscan tribes. And Wood Elves finally have new followers (Yay!). If these changes appear sweeping, it’s probably because they are. The Old World is in for a shakeup.
As always, we’ll be paying close attention to your experiences and feedback, and based on that, we might reign in some of the changes. But play it and judge for yourself. We want to let things bed in before we consider any redress.
In the meantime, have fun!
On with the show…
