Total War: WARHAMMER - The King & The Warlord

The King & The Warlord DLC was developed by Creative Assembly, published by SEGA and released 20 October 2016.

About the Game

The King & The Warlord is the second Lords Pack for Total War: WARHAMMER. Bolstering the forces of both The Greenskins and The Dwarfs, it introduces famous rival characters, new iconic units and new battle maps from the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles to your Grand Campaigns and Custom/Multiplayer battles.

Two new Legendary Lords, a Dwarf King Belegar Ironhammer of Clan Angrund and Skarsnik, the chieftain of the Crooked Moon Tribe who have laid claim to Belegars home, the fortified mines of Karak Eight Peaks. Each of these Legendary Lords fields their own unique units, Quest Chains, and Campaign bonus', buildings and technologies.

The two Legendary Lords are both hell-bent on claiming the ancient Dwarf-Hold Karak Eight Peaks for themselves. Their destinies entwined, The King and the Warlord must face one another in a final, desperate battle to determine the true ruler of Karak Eight Peaks.

Skills and Experience

The Squig units were really popular in The Grim & The Grave, one of the Quest Battle designers also invented the concept of 'Exploding Squigs', which Games Workshop allowed us to use in the 'Squiggly beasts' Quest Battle. This added a really fun variation in the battle where the Squigs would run in kamikaze waves towards the players armies.

Similar to The Grim & The Grave, we gave away 22 more free Regiments of Renown units to this DLC
