Total War: Warhammer 2 – The Twisted & The Twilight is Out and It Looks Amazing

A Queen’s Implacable Guardians Oppose a Creature of Chilling Madness

Total War: Warhammer 2‘s ninth DLC pack dropped today and it looks, well, amazing. We’ve been looking forward to this for a while, ever since we first saw the Skaven and Wood Elf armies battling in that cinematic announcement trailer. Now we can safely say that this new expansion is definitely something to watch out for. It doesn’t just introduce the titular foes, Throt the Unclean and the Sisters of Twilight, to the game–it’ll be adding a treasure trove of new Legendary Heroes, terrifying beasts, and even campaign and faction mechanics. Also, this release trailer is a great way to brush up on what, exactly, is going down in the forests of Nagaroth.

Long story short, a terrible portal has opened in the Wood Elf Kingdom, and now Queen Ariel must close it before the demons on the other side do something she’ll regret. She’s sent her most loyal servants, Nastra and Arahan, to cleanse the forest while she’s busy. At the same time, the Skavens of Clan Moulder are launching an assault on the elves because the big rat in charge wants to kill and eat Queen Ariel. As you might guess, peace is not an option. The Sisters of Twilight stalk the battlefield from the wings of a Great Eagle or Forest Dragon while Throt the Unclean roams the forest floor, taking down large characters and breaking them to break them to his will. It promises to be a battle to remember.

The Twisted & The Twilight brings a huge number of fresh warriors to the battlefield, including Legendary Heroes Ariel and Ghoritch, new units like Brood Horrors, Zoats, Wolf Rats, Great Stag Knights, and more. This DLC comes with all the butterfly-winged elf sorcerers and giant, mutated rats you could ask for. Plus, it’ll hand out Free-LC to all players of Total War: Warhammer 2 and add some much-needed balance patches for the Wood Elf faction as a whole.

Total War: Warhammer 2 is now available on PC for $11.99 CDN.
