New bloody DLC for Total War: WARHAMMER

The new DLC for Total War: WARHAMMER will probably raise the game's rating.

As one can imagine, in Total War: WARHAMMER, the only constant in the game is war. It’s the name of the game -- literally. Now Total War: WARHAMMER has received a new DLC pack with even more gore that will likely raise the game's rating to Mature (18+).

The DLC "Blood for the Blood God" includes new gory effects that players can contend with on the battlefield. Even the user interface elements are drenched in blood.

The turn-based campaign strategy of Total War combines building empires with the complete desolation that comes in bloody, real-time battles. Players can command four different races in the process: the Empire, the Dwarfs, the Vampire Counts and the Greenskins.

Other effects in "Blood for the Blood God" include blood spurts, gory splatter on unit models, and limb and head dismemberment. The dismemberment will be included for humanoid and non-legendary characters only. Players may also encounter dismembered zombies, skeletons and Grave Guard who can continue to fight after losing limbs.

With all the new, prolific gore, Sega has noted that the game’s rating may go up depending on the player’s country of residence.

Developer Creative Assembly didn’t announce the DLC when the trailer first leaked. However, Sega has now officially released the DLC on Steam for $2.99.
