Creative Assembly will be having lots of free DLC released for Total War: Warhammer after the game launches this year, and now they have just detailed what the plans are for that process. The game will be supported for several months post-launch, with the free DLC bringing new units, Heroes and a brand new race.

Brand director Rob Bartholomew said the following regarding the free DLC plans:

“The Warhammer Fantasy Battles World is gigantic, and we’re looking forward to exploring it over the forthcoming trilogy. But that incredible cast of characters and monsters also provides us the chance to make lots of interesting Free DLC to support our games over time.”

Scroll down for a list of what to expect from the free DLC for Total War: Warhammer later this year.

Themed on a specific rivalry or conflict from the Warhammer Lore, Lord Packs contain brand new Legendary Lords and supporting units and characters for existing playable races. They typically include:

• 2 new playable Legendary Lords with their own narrative quest chains, campaign bonuses and quest items.

• 2 new Lords to serve as generals.

Race Packs introduce a new playable Race to the game, either as a first appearance, or adding a full Unit roster, Heroes, Lords and playable Legendary Lords to non-playable existing races in the core game. They might typically include:

• A new playable Race added to the Grand Campaign and Multiplayer game.

• New Legendary Lords with their own narrative quest chains, campaign bonuses and quest items.

• New Lords to serve as generals.

A supercharged version of a Race Pack, Campaign Packs not only contain a brand new Race for use in the Grand Campaign and Multiplayer, but also add a new Challenge Campaign to the game. Themed on an epic event from the Warhammer Lore, these self-contained Campaigns will present a distinct and challenging scenario. Contents might typically include:

• A new Challenge Campaign featuring the Pack’s new Race; a self-contained mini-campaign, with a set of escalating victory conditions to suit both new and very experienced veteran players alike.

• Adds a new playable Race to the Grand Campaign and Multiplayer game.

• New Legendary Lords with their own narrative quest chains, campaign bonuses and quest items.

• New Lords to serve as generals.

Total War: Warhammer will launch for PC on May 24th.
