It’s been a successful first year for CA’s ambitious Total War: WARHAMMER trilogy, with a critically acclaimed first entry into the trilogy. Total War Warhammer's initial launch was followed by months of DLC and free content that continues to have a major impact on the core gameplay. Today sees the free release of Bretonnia, an eighth playable race based upon Arthurian myths of chivalric knights and powerful items. This will be the final first phase release of DLC meaning that CA will now focus more and more on the next game.
“We’re rounding off part one with a bang, not a wimple, and it’s a big thank-you to our players” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director. “The strength of our DLC sales means we can put more into our free content releases. Not only that, we can have faith in upping our content plans for the next two games.”
“We want to make the most incredible fantasy trilogy possible. And with Bretonnia, we’re bringing our time in the Old World to a close. Production on the sequel to TW: Warhammer has been underway for some time already and is now a key focus for the studio. It’s time to travel to new lands and discover new races. Meanwhile, our historical team are also working on a major triple-A title in an era we’ve not visited yet. Over 1.2 million people play Total War every month, with the majority playing our previous games. We haven’t forgotten that.”

It’s the perfect jumping-in point for anyone yet to immerse themselves in the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battles.The free Bretonnia Race Pack adds 3 new legendary lords, each presenting a new way to play through the main campaign.
