The absolutely relentless DLC plan in place for Total War: Warhammer continues apace with the announcement of the Realm of the Wood Elves expansion. This one promises to bring a bit more to the table than the last few DLC packs have though, with the Wood Elves playing in a markedly different way to just about any faction currently in the game.
Wood Elves, naturally enough, are clued into nature. Rising from the forests they have powerful allies such as Great Eagles, Dryads, Forest Dragons and giant Ents Treemen, along with the best archers in the whole of Total War: Warhammer. Because the Wood Elves may love nature but there’s nothing they like more than to butcher a tree into tiny twigs.
"With a rich suite of lore-inspired campaign and battle mechanics, Total War: Warhammer's first Elven race offers a playstyle unlike any other," says publisher Sega. Interestingly the Wood Elves have no true place to call home, so players can claim any region as their own. With every successive city they manage to build, the Wood Elves get a piece of magical amber which helps the Oak of Ages grow. Get it to full size and the Wood Elves win the match. The higher it gets though, the more attention it’s going to attract.
The Realm of the Wood Elves expansion also comes with a bunch of new Legendary Lords and Heroes to mess around with. You can look for the DLC on December 8th, priced at £14.
