Today, SEGA and the Creative Assembly revealed ‘The Queen and the Crone’ – the latest DLC for their epic strategy game, Total War: Warhammer II. Check out the trailer (above) and screenshots/artwork (below).
Here’s a sample of the DLC’s back story, taken from SEGA’s press release.
Throughout the lands of Avelorn, the very presence of Everqueen Alarielle brings great joy and tranquillity to the Elven havens. Yet across the Great Ocean in the dark lands of Naggaroth, something wicked stirs. The Hag-Queen, Crone Hellebron, in a storm of jealous rage, leads forth a murderous army of Dark Elves, to extinguish all beauty from the world.
So it is in this time of grave peril that Alarielle will take to the battlefield, for only she can vanquish this darkness and defend Ulthuan from the depredations of the impure.
The Queen & The Crone will be the first ‘Legendary Lords’ pack released, playable in both the Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaign. It introduces new elite units, quest chains, magic items and skill trees.
The DLC is due for release on May 31, 2018 and is currently available to pre-order at a 10% discount from SEGA approved digital retailers. Further details are available here.
