Since the release of Total War: Warhammer II in 2017, Creative Assembly has added tons of new factions, features, quality of life improvements and more over time. Still, if you've been itching for even more to do, here you go. The next DLC pack has been revealed as The Warden & The Paunch! This DLC pack focuses on the High Elf lord Eltharion and the Greenskin chief Grom the Paunch. You can check out the reveal trailer for Total War: Warhammer II — The Warden & The Paunch below.

With this DLC, in addition to the new faction-specific leaders and gameplay mechanics, several new units are being introduced, such as the Archmages for the High Elves and the Rogue Idols of Gork (or maybe Mork) for the Greenskins.

  • I just want Creative Assembly to go back to historical games.... Empire II would be greatly appreciated for example.
  • Fair, but the last major game they released was a historical game, Three Kingdoms. And the next game coming up is Total War Troy, a smaller "Saga" game but historical all the same.
