• Supplement: “Total War: Warhammer – Norsca”
A little later on August 10th, a new large-scale add-on for the original Total War: Warhammer called Norsca appeared in digital stores. The addition is interesting, first of all, because this time the harsh northern people inhabiting the whole peninsula will come under the command of the players. The people, in turn, live and breathe raids and destruction, subjugating mythical ancient monsters and worshiping the Dark Gods. Anyone can expect a big conquest campaign, new unique heroes, new mechanics and an army – in general, everything that is needed for a solid addition. However, there is an interesting point: anyone who pre-orders Total War: Warhammer 2 will receive this faction for free.
