- Some DLC must be paid for (paid DLC).
- Other DLC is free (FLC, Free-LC).
Please note that all DLC races and lords will still appear in the campaign mode for you to fight against/trade with, even if you don't buy them.
Types of DLC
- Lord Packs (contain 2 new legendary lords, new units, and regiments of renown)
- Race Packs (contain a new race complete with legendary lords, units etc)
- Campaign Packs (contain a new race complete with legendary lords, units etc). Originally these had mini-campaigns included with them, but going forward they will no longer have mini-campaigns, and will instead have more legendary lords, features and polish.
In July 2017, CA published a blog regarding early-adopter bonuses and DLC for Total War: Warhammer II. In the blog, they described the early adopter bonuse for TW2 (which turned out to be Norsca) as a Race Pack, and said it would be in line with the Chaos Warriors Race Pack or Bretonnia in terms of content. Then they stated that going forward, "Big DLCs" (as distinct from Race Packs) would contain a new race and four legendary lords. This was in response to player feedback on past DLCs.
Then in December 2017, prior to the release of Rise of the Tomb Kings, CA published a new blog post saying that Rise of the Tomb Kings would not contain a mini-campaign/supplementary campaign, due to negative player feedback about those. Instead Rise of the Tomb Kings would have 4 legendary lords and more features.
In June 2018, after the release of The Queen and the Crone Lord Pack, a CA representative stated on Reddit that "We have two types of DLC for WH2. Campaign packs and lord packs. I don't think we've ever used the phrase 'race pack' for WH2 DLC."
On July 6 2018, a representative of CA stated that the next campaign pack (which turned out to be Curse of the Vampire Coast) for TWW2 would be out "later in the year", and that the next lord pack (which turned out to be The Prophet and the Warlock) would be in 2019.
In the FAQ blog for Total War: Warhammer III, CA stated that there would be a "Race Pack" DLC for TWW3 as an early adopter bonus (free to players who preorder the game or buy within the first week of release, but otherwise is a paid DLC).
