An upcoming update for Total War: Warhammer II will see a host of new content added to the already expansive game.
According to a new blog post, recent announcements regarding other Total War titles should not be construed as Creative Assembly putting Warhammer II to the side. Instead, the core team is working on something fans should look forward to—the next big update for the game, titled the ‘Reprisal Update’.
The ‘Reprisal Update’ integrates content changes from Total War: Warhammer’s ‘Foundation Update’ into Warhammer II’s Mortal Empires campaign set, among them Warriors of Chaos design changes, Wood elf followers, new skill trees for Old World Legendary Lords, and the ownership of an entire province by the Empire at the start of the campaign. Additional changes include five new skills for Helman Ghrost, the Immortality skill added to Old World characters, and a “handful of bug fixes.”
More content and changes are planned for Total War: Warhammer II beyond ‘Reprisal’, though the blog post states that these have not yet been dated. Those changes will include the arrival of the Norscans in the Mortal Empires campaign set and the 30th Anniversary Regiments of Renown. In addition, the Warhammer II team is investigating the possibility of giving each Old World Legendary Lord a unique starting position on the campaign map.
At present, the ‘Reprisal Update’ has no set release date, though work on it is nearly complete, and the developer expects to offer the update as an opt-in beta “very soon.”
