Fans of the Total War: Warhammer 2 video game should be excited right now because a new DLC is on the horizon, and it’s all about pirates and giant enemy crabs. From what we’ve come to understand, the DLC is called, Curse of the Vampire Coast, and it’s set to launch next month.
This new downloadable content should prove difficult for gamers because it will feature four undead pirate Legendary Lords, and as we know, Legendary Lords aren’t easy to defeat in battle.
Additionally, there are units with big guns and other cool weapons designed to obliterate your troops to nothingness. But most importantly, however, is the coming of the giant crabs. Let’s be honest here, in the video game industry, the giant enemy crab is probably one of the most talked about enemies.
It reminds us a lot of Genji: Days of the Blade back in 2006 when it was first revealed to the world as a PlayStation 3 exclusive. Today, the crab aspect of Genji 2 is a meme, but certainly, the ones in Curse of the Vampire Coast won’t suffer the same fate.
When can we get to play Curse of the Vampire Coast?
According to the folks at Creative Assembly, the new Total War: Warhammer 2 DLC will be available on Steam come November 8, 2018. The game’s price is a cool $19 with a 10 percent discount if you pre-order before launch.
Furthermore, if you’re a fan of the Vampire Counts, the developer plans on releasing a free update designed to bring major revisions to these characters in the future. To make things even more interesting, plans are in place to give players a new Legendary Lord free of cost.
This is good news for folks who are not too keen on purchasing DLC. It means they’ll be part of the fun of getting new and shiny things to play with.
Here’s what Creative Assembly had to say:
“The erratic power of the Great Vortex has awoken Amanar, a vast and ancient Merwyrm. It terrorizes the Vampire Coast, attacking ports on a whim and summoning colossal sea-storms in its wake. Each of the Legendary Lords seeks not to harness the power of the Vortex, but to locate and empower the fabled Star-Metal Harpoon—the only weapon capable of bending the beast to their will, and securing their reputation as the most infamous pirate lord on the high seas!”
Total War: Warhammer 2 was released in 2017, and went on to become the best Real-Time Strategy game of that year. The title fixed many of the problems of the original game, which means, the campaign doesn’t become a bore near the end.
The storyline is also much better this time around, and guess what? Just like the first game, you can play as Dwarfs. I mean, who doesn’t like playing as Dwarfs, the little men who are the only beings in the entire game incapable of manipulating magic.
Now, for those who are thinking about Total War: Warhammer 3, well, it’s currently in pre-production. The release date is likely set for either the year 2020 or 2021 because Creative Assembly is busy working on Total War: Three Kingdoms for 2019.
