'Total War: Warhammer' Bretonnians Update Arrives Feb. 28; First Look At Vampire Countess Isabella von Carstein [Watch]
Avid gamers of "Total War: Warhammer" will be delighted to see the addition of a new Legendary Lord option for the Vampire Counts named Isabella von Carstein. Isabella is a noblewoman who got the blood kiss from Vlad von Carstein and transformed into a vampire.
"Isabella von Carstein begins her campaign in the new starting position for the Von Carstein faction alongside Vlad in Schwartzhafen," notes Grace Carroll of Creative Assembly. In addition, Carroll said she arrives with rare set of quests, traits and skills and an eternal love for her husband Vlad.
According to PCGamesN, von Carstein will be heading to the game along with the Bretonnians update on February 28. But that will happen only if "Total War: Warhammer" wins at the PC Gamer Weekender event called "Make Love Not Battle." If the game does not win, she will still get into the game and PC Invasion, in its report, assumes that she might arrive as a paid DLC.
It is reasonable that she might arrive to the game as either paid or free DLC since Creative Assembly has already put a lot of work in it. But this is still a speculation since the developer is still quiet on this matter.
"Total War: Warhammer" was designed to be broken into three parts and this game is just the beginning of a trilogy. Creative Assembly and Sega plan to deploy additional "content packs" for every game in the trilogy, making it "the largest Total War experience ever." The second and third parts of the trilogy will be released in an unspecified time yet, as players are still enjoying the first installment.
"Total War: Warhammer" was released for PC on May 2016, Linux on November 2016 and soon on Mac OS. The game is developed as a turn-based strategy title with real-time tactical battles between armies by Creative Assembly and published by Sega. It has sold over half a million copies durng its first few days on sale.
