Total War: Warhammer II is getting a fresh batch of free content in Doomsayer update that is scheduled to drop tomorrow - 17 April 2019, along with the new The Lizardmen and The Warlock DLC. The update will add new maps, abilities and more.
Creative Assembly are launching the much-anticipated The Lizardmen and The Warlock DLC for Total War: Warhammer II tomorrow, 17 April 2019. As you may know, the DLC will add new lords, battlefield units, quests, Regiments of Renown and much more. Along with the paid DLC, Creative Assembly will also drop another batch of free content to celebrate the release of the new expansion.
The update brings a huge array of content additions, revisions, balances and improvements to the Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaigns. Also, Ikit Claw and Tehenauin’s factions of Clan Skryre and the Cult of Sotek will appear in both campaigns under AI control, even if you do not own The Prophet & The Warlock.
Furthermore, the Doomsayer update will also introduce a massive overhaul to campaign balance and AI behaviour, which is a necessary action given the influx of new lords and factions. Both Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaign maps will also get multiple new territories and these map revisions will be active in all new campaigns you start after the update, meaning that they won't appear in pre-update saves.
The Bretonnia factions will also get a significant rework, bringing changes to their buildings, techs, diplomacy, the Green Knight and more. AI Vampire Counts factions can now gain Bloodline Lords, with specializations for some factions.
As for the Skavens, when conquering an enemy settlement, they now have a new post-battle option. Alongside Loot & Occupy, Sack, and Raze, the army may now choose to Expand Under Empire.
This leaves the settlement intact but establishes a new Skaven undercity beneath it. You can develop the undercity further and make it a powerful addition to your infrastructure but keep in mind that the risk of being discovered is also increasing with the undercity's size.
The patch notes for the imminent update are absolutely massive and if you want to take a closer look at all these changes, visit the Total War forum.
