The fact that there will be day one downloadable content in the form of thedoesn't sit well with gamers, and one has posted a petition protesting the DLC.
Thestates that "The Total war Community have been very vocal on past grievances with Rome 2's disastrous launch, the endless DLCs, and a need to make the game an overall complete experience" and that "this shows little regard to the loyal CA fans that have supported this company for the past 15 years."
It concludes, "It is time to show faith and loyalty to the customers and fans as we have placed it in CA throughout these years. We demand to have a game that is Complete and without Cut Content. We are troubled by the direction the gaming industry has taken and we believe CA and Sega can rise above the dishonest practices."
The petition has garnered over 6,000 signatures, but the petition doesn't make any sort of threat to boycott the game, so it's unlikely Creative Assembly will release the Chaos Warriors Race Pack for free for non-preorders or stop working on future DLC.
Total War: Warhammer is due to be released on 26 April 2016.
