New Total War Warhammer 2 DLC Brings New Lords, New Factions, New Abilities

Creative Assembly released a trailer for a new Total War Warhammer 2 DLC this morning, detailing two new factions and two new legendary lords, all of which come with new abilities and new units. This DLC, “The Prophet and the Warlock”, will be coming out on April 17 of this year.

The two new Legendary Lords in the DLC will be in charge of two new factions, Clan Skryre and the Cult of Sotek, who will be battling for dominance in the continent of Lustria. Led by the Warlock Engineer Ikit Claw, Clan Skryre brings a whole new host of Skaven gadgets to butcher your enemies.

As the Cult of Sotek, led by the Prophet Tehenhuain, players will be able to call more of Lustria’s fearsome beasts to their aid, along with being able to summon Sotek, the Lizardmen’s fearsome Serpent God, to feast on their enemies.

Along with the two new factions and the units they bring, the new Total War Warhammer 2 DLC also has a number of different mechanics. The Cult of Sotek will be able to gather sacrifices from non-Lizardmen enemies to help summon Sotek and gain other buffs. They will also be able to embark on a quest chain to revive Lord Kroak, an undead Slaan Relic Priest that will serve as a legendary hero similar to Bretonnia’s Green Knight.

Clan Skryre will be able to make use of the new Skaven Under-Empire mechanic, which operates similarly to the Vampire Coast’s Pirate Cove ability. They will be able to establish Skaven outposts beneath the cities of other factions, which can be great for creating an ambush or laying down a Doomsphere, a massive bomb that can wipe out an entire city in a single warpstone-augmented blast.

Once again, the new Total War Warhammer 2 DLC “The Prophet and the Warlock” will be releasing on April 17 exclusively on the PC. To see the trailer, just follow this link.
