Want to have the complete set of factions in Total War: Warhammer? Well, uh, it looks like it could be an expensive business. Creative Assembly has announced the first new post-launch faction for Total War: Warhammer along with a trailer; but the mighty Beastmen will set you back a whopping £14 when they arrive later this month.
Fortunately, this time CA has gone a little further than it usually does with new Total War factions. The Beastmen will be playable in the Total Warhammer’s main campaign and will also have their own “An eye for an eye” story campaign. Leading the barbarous hordes of forest dwellers will be two new legendary lords, backed up by an army of unique units, monsters and heroes.
If the thought of frolocking in the woods as an axe-wielding deer surrounded by decapitated heads sounds appealing to you, then Total War: Warhammer - Call of the Beastmen could show some promise, but the £14 price tag seems a little on the steep side for Total War fans used to 3 or 4 new factions per mini expansion. For instance, Total War: Attila’s Slavic Nations Culture pack introduced three new factions and cost just £6.
For those looking at picking it up, Call of the Beastmen is out on July 28th.
