Total War: Warhammer II

Creative Assembly have announced the next DLC pack for Total War: Warhammer II, The Warden & The Paunch.

The Warden & The Paunch follows the same formula as the last several DLC packs, by focusing on two rival legendary lords. This latest DLC features Eltharion the Grim and his High Elves, as they defend against the onslaught of Grom the Paunch and his Broken Axe Tribe Greenskins.

Both factions have campaigns with unique mechanics and units, including fan favorites from Warhammer Fantasy Battle like River Trolls, Snotling Pump Wagons, Rogue Idols, and White Lion Chariots.

You can find the The Warden & The Paunch trailer below.

The Warden & The Paunch will release on May 21st for $8.99.

You can find an abridged rundown of the DLC (via Steam) below:

The Warden & the Paunch is the latest Lords Pack for Total War: WARHAMMER II. Introducing two rival Legendary Lords from the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, each with their own factions, objectives, mechanics, units and playstyle, for use in both the Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaigns, and custom/multiplayer battles.

Eltharion the Grim commands Yvresse (High Elves) while Grom the Paunch leads the Broken Axe Tribe (Greenskins). Neither Yvresse nor the Broken Axe tribe are involved in the Vortex race, but are pitted against one another as eternal nemeses, on a collision course to a final climactic encounter where only one can emerge the victor.

Long has Eltharion the Warden of Tor Yvresse stood sentinel, ever-watchful for signs of Greenskin incursion. While he campaigned overseas against the Druchii of Naggarond in ages past, Tor Yvresse nearly fell as the green tsunami of Grom the Paunch’s legendary Waaagh! roared through Ulthuan. After defeating Grom and scattering his hordes, Eltharion swore that no Orc or Goblin filth would ever set foot in his lands again.

But Grom has other designs. His cavernous belly aches for a rematch, and his hunger for vengeance is matched only by his titanic appetite. As his gobbos tend to the bubbling cauldron, delighting him with each tasty new morsel, his plans begin to set. He’ll gather them all, the bosses and the boys, wind them up to a fever pitch, and lead them on a Waaagh! the likes of which the world has never seen. This time, Tor Yvresse will fall, and its snooty Warden will kneel before the mighty Paunch!

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