Total War: Warhammer blood & gore DLC is out

Total War: Warhammer blood & gore DLC is out
Jul 1, 2016, 6:33 PM

Developer Creative Assembly keeps adding more stuff to their recently released title of strategic battles inspired on the Warhammer Fantasy Battles tabletop miniatures game. This time they have released a new DLC that provides exactly what you can read on its name, Blood for the Blood God. The theme selected to announce this gruesome addon couldn't be more appropriate, since Khorne is the Chaos God of blood, war, rage, and murder.

This DLC adds a list of all new effects and features that will make the game more realistic, (in a bloody way at least):

 

  • Blood spurts
  • Gory spatter on unit models
  • Limb and head dismemberment (humanoids and non-legendary characters)
  • Zombies, skeletons and Grave Guard may continue to fight after dismemberment!
  • Explosive Gibbing from deadly mid-torso strikes
  • Blood-drenched UI elements
  • New random, global campaign events that generate greater carnage in battle

 

Someone could argue that they are being cheap, selling something that should have been in Total War: Warhammer from the start. But you have to keep in mind that if something like this was included in the base game it would have been rated for older people, making it available to fewer people. Maybe adding it as a toggle option with an age confirmation check requirement would have been the solution?

Other than that, Creative Assembly keeps polishing this jewel of a game with their first big update that comes loaded with balance changes, performance fixes, multiplayer maps and a new type of cavalry unit for the Vampire Counts army, the Blood Knights in Total War: Warhammer. You can read all the changes implemented in the patch notes. Now it's time for my Chaos army to continue crushing all hope and spreading corruption through the Old World, hoping that they keep steady that flow of updates and free stuff.

"Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!"
