Creative Assembly today announced that the barbaric Norscans will be the latest playable Race added to Total War™: WARHAMMER®. Anyone pre-ordering Total War: WARHAMMER II through a SEGA approved retailer* before release or buying in the first week on sale will receive the Norsca Race Pack for Total War: WARHAMMER free of charge.

The Norsca Race Pack will be playable in the first part of the trilogy from August 10th, ahead of Total War: WARHAMMER II’s release on September 28th. In the frozen Norsca peninsula far to the north, barbaric tribes serve the dark gods through hunting and pillaging. Hardened by relentless blizzards and the monstrous beasts of this bitter wilderness, the Norscans exist only to lay waste. This DLC introduces two new playable factions, led by unique Legendary Lords. Players can embark on monster hunt quests, command ferocious units including War Mammoths and Skin Wolves, and construct towering monoliths to court favour with the dark gods.

Shortly after the launch of Total War: WARHAMMER II, a gigantic update will be made available to owners of both games, for free. A new combined campaign map will enable players to conquer both the Old World and the New as any Race from both base games and any owned DLC Races. After its release, this will be further updated to include Norsca.
