Creative Assembly and SEGA have announced today the first in-game look at the Norsca race DLC for Total War: Warhammer, which will be available on August 10. A full gameplay stream is coming at 15:00 BST/10:00 ET/07:00 PT tomorrow on the Total War Twitch channel.
The first look gameplay video is embedded at the end of this news post, and we'll update it when we have the new gameplay tomorrow. The Norsca DLC is available for free to owners of Total War: Warhammer if you pre-order Total War: Warhammer 2. Otherwise it is priced £7.99/$8.99.
The Norsca are a wild Northern folk from the Shadowlands. They're raiders, pillagers and looters who serve the Dark Gods. From their Playstyle description: "A Norscan campaign is one of relentless pillage and ruination. Their principle sources of income are raiding and sacking. This lends itself to a very mobile and combative playstyle – always keeping your armies on the move and often in contention with other factions. Razing settlements enables you to erect monoliths to the dark gods of Norsca… and the gods always reward the faithful!
In battle, Norscan armies are swift and vicious, featuring a backbone of increasingly fierce and more heavily armed Marauder infantry units. With the right buildings in place, they can also recruit a wide array of monstrous units such as Trolls, Fimir Warriors, Norscan Ice Wolves and Skin Wolves. At the top of the tree are the Frost-Wyrm and the colossal War Mammoth."
The Norsca DLC for Total War: Warhammer is available on August 10.
