Total War: Warhammer II – The Silence & The Fury DLC Announced, Launches July 14

Total War: Warhammer II - The Silence & The Fury 

Sega and Creative Assembly have announced The Silence & The Fury DLC for Total War: Warhammer II. 

The final Lord Pack DLC is focused on the Beastmen and Lizardmen. The Beastmen are led by Taurox, a Doombull given a body of living bronze that makes him almost invulnerable; bar one area on his neck. The Chaos gods promise him that there is a ritual via the Heart of Darkness that can help him be rid of this last weakness.

Oxyotl, a Chameleon Skink and master of stealth, has learned of the Chaos gods plan and has called upon his allies to stop Taurox before it is too late. More of the roster, and likely the plot will be revealed in July 2021.

In battle, Taurox has Momentum as he wins battles, granting him more powers the longer he keeps his kill-streak going. The Beastmen can also replenish their action points to keep snowballing over foes.

Meanwhile, Oxyotl is used to fending off the forces of chaos. He has prescience, and can tell where chaos will strike next. He then uses the network of Secret Sanctums across the world to capture and develop; then move instantly between them, the capitol, and unique mission areas.

You can find the Teaser Trailer below.

Total War: Warhammer II – The Silence & The Fury DLC launches July 14th on Windows PC, Linux, Mac; all via Steam.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

This Lords Pack for Total War: WARHAMMER II introduces two new Legendary Lords for the Lizardmen and the Beastmen. Each leads their own faction and features new characters, units, unique gameplay mechanics and narrative objectives.

Formed of living bronze, the rage-filled Doombull, Taurox, is nigh-on invincible – save for one area on his gargantuan neck. The Chaos gods whisper to him of a ritual that can eliminate this weakness, but the promises of the ruinous powers are seldom what they seem…
Meanwhile, Oxyotl, the revered Chameleon Skink and master of stealth, scents the machinations of Chaos and rallies his cohorts. Taurox must be stopped at all costs, lest a new tide of Chaos sweeps the world. When the Silence meets the Fury in a final confrontation, who will prevail?

Beastmen: Taurox
After embarking on a bloody rampage through Talabecland, Taurox was rewarded by the dark gods with a body of brass… and still, he thirsts for slaughter! As he wins battles, Taurox gains Momentum, and his army can replenish action points to fight and fight again. The longer his kill-streak continues, the greater the gifts bestowed upon him by the ruinous powers. He and his Beastmen hordes will ultimately need to locate the Heart of Darkness, where he will face Oxyotl in a final, decisive battle.

Lizardmen: Oxyotl
A chameleon Skink of high renown, Oxyotl has a long history of fighting – and succeeding against – the otherworldly forces of Chaos. His prescience enables him to detect where the forces of chaos will strike next and, utilising the network of lost Secret Sanctums across the world only he can capture and develop, Oxyotl can choose which threats to tackle, and reap the rewards of victory. Oxyotl can instantly travel between his capitol, his unique mission areas, and any Secret Sanctums he has rediscovered. Ultimately, he must travel to the Heart of Darkness and face the hordes of Taurox in a final, desperate battle.

Keep your eyes peeled for more information on the rest of the roster in July!

Total War: Warhammer II is available on Windows PC, Linux, Mac; all via Steam.
