What is The Queen & The Crone?
The Queen & the Crone is our first Lords Pack DLC for Total War: WARHAMMER II. Bolstering the forces of the High Elves and the Dark Elves, it introduces two famous rival characters and new iconic units from the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles to your campaigns and battles.
As for Lord Packs for the first part of the trilogy, we’ve intended to focus the DLC around a legendary rivalry from the Warhammer Fantasy Lore; and what could be more of a rivalry than between the Everqueen and the Crone? What’s more we’ve been listening to the feedback from the community following the Steps of Isha Free-LC release and our in-game metrics, this time really focussing on campaign replayability and picking units for this pack that emphasise and suit the new Lords.
We’re thrilled to be able to reveal Total War: THREE KINGDOMS to the world and we hope you’re all excited by the game as we are. In Spring 2018, players will be able to conquer feudal China for the first time ever in a Total War game.
Across the arid deserts of Nehekhara, vast legions of skeletal warriors rise from beneath the baking sands to slaughter those who trespass into their domain. It is a lifeless realm of endless dunes, stained red from the blood of savages and barbarians. This is the Land of the Dead, where mummified kings are cursed to rule in perpetual unlife. But it was not always thus.
There was a time when the ancient kingdom of Nehekhara stood as a crown of human civilisation; a golden age when its cities shone with majestic splendour, its armies conquered entire nations and its kings ruled as gods among men. But this realm was razed millennia ago by the treacherous sorcery of reviled Nagash: in a stroke, the living perished and the dead rose from their tombs.
Death is no barrier to glory for the Tomb Kings however. In unlife, they will see the empire of Nehekhara restored to greatness!
The arcane and dangerous machinery of Clan Skryre blends the dangerous powers of Warp energy with the brilliant but unhinged nature of Skaven ingenuity. At the very cutting edge of technology the winds of magic mix freely with the madness of a corrupted science. Through twisted machinery, and stench of poisonous fumes, perhaps you too can divine the very future of warfare…

Is this the next historical Total War game?
Thrones of Britannia is historical and is next to be released, but it’s a Total War Saga game. The next era-spanning historical Total War game is being worked on by a separate team and is yet to be announced.
What is A Total War Saga?
Total War Sagas offer the same additive mix of turn-based campaign strategy, real-time battle tactics with hundreds if not thousands of hours of gameplay as a regular Total War game, just focussed down on a distinct moment.
They will be concentrated games which will put you right in the middle of a dynamic point in history, where the outcome could have gone in a huge number of different directions. Such moments also tend to be constrained to a tight geographic area as well.
Sagas won’t introduce brand-new eras; they’ll follow-on from previous Total War games and inhabit the same time-period, or at the very least relate to it.
Fall of the Samurai is exactly the kind of thing we’re talking about here. It was a standalone spin-off from Total War: SHOGUN 2, focussed on the pivotal event of the Boshin War.
