Total War: Warhammer fans will have free DLC packs to look forward to in the months after the game's release in May.

Creative Assembly today revealed that there will be free DLC available for Total War: Warhammer post-launch, including a brand new Race.

In the months after Total War: Warhammer is released, there will be a variety of free DLC released. Players who own the game will get their hands on new units, Heroes, Legendary Lords, and a new playable Race.

Of course, there will also be a variety of paid-for-DLC packs available in the coming months. There will be Lord Packs with playable Legendary Lords, new Lords to serve as generals, and new elite units; Race Packs with a new playable Race, Race-specific units, buildings, technology and skill trees; and Campaign Packs featuring new magic items, a new Challenge Campaign, and more.

“With both Rome II and Attila we were able to release playable factions, new formats and even a free campaign expansion as a thanks to players for supporting Total War,” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director at CA. “The Warhammer Fantasy Battles World is gigantic, and we’re looking forward to exploring it over the forthcoming trilogy. But that incredible cast of characters and monsters also provides us the chance to make lots of interesting Free DLC to support our games over time.”

Total War: Warhammer will be released on May 24th.
