Total War: Warhammer had previously locked an entire race, the Chaos Warriors, behind pre-order DLC, but the developer has since reversed its position. Now, the Chaos Warriors will be free for anyone who pre-orders or buys the game—until a week after release. It’s a good compromise.
If you were worried that the announcement of Total War: Warhammer (why not Total Warhammer?) is coming at the expense of proper Total War games, Creative Assembly has told PC Gamer the Warhammer title is being developed by a “completely separate team. The historic thread goes on uninterrupted.” Phew.
