We've just received a brand new trailer for Total War: Warhammer II that showcases some DLC that we'll be getting on November 8 (costing £13.99, with a 10% discount currently active on Steam), bringing us new content as part of the Curse of the Vampire Coast.
"Night falls on Lustria. As you stand on the dock and peer seawards through the gathering mists, strain your ears. The jungle sounds behind you fade, and in their place comes a wet thudding, as of rotten rigging against a mouldy mast. The sound multiplies, and with it the groan of a thousand breathless voices, joined in something part-shanty, part-dirge. Dread prows pierce the gloom ahead, and the ghastly truth is laid bare: upon the ghoul-winds come the swollen hulks and decaying vessels of the Vampire Coast! Run now - run hard and fast, for it is all you can do," the official description reads.
The Campaign Pack for this DLC contains four new Legendary Lords, the Lore of the Deep, and a new roster featuring things like towering constructs and sea-beasts, not to mention zombies with muskets.
On top of this there are new campaign mechanics as well, as treasure maps allow you to hunt for riches, and you can even upgrade each Legendary Lord's unique ship, helping you to improve your Infamy as you sail the seas. Pirate coves also allow you to establish hidden enclaves in enemy settlements, and you can reward your undead crew with positions of power to build loyalty. You can even unlock eight new Regiments of Renown on your adventure too.
New battle mechanics make their way into the mix as well, as you can use your Heroes to keep gun-lines topped up with ammo, and each unit will benefit from missile-related buffs.
