The latest DLC pack for Total War: Warhammer II, The Prophet and the Warlock, is out tomorrow, and it adds the skink prophet Tehenhauin and the warlock-engineer Ikit Claw to the Skaven and the Lizardmen races respectively. However, as nice as this new DLC is, players were still hoping to see more substantial expansions for the game in the future – such as new playable races.
They might be waiting a while. Unfortunately, according to Creative Assembly, there will not be any more races, armies, or factions added to Total War: Warhammer II. The only DLC the developer will release from now on will be further ‘Lord Packs’, such as tomorrow’s The Prophet and the Warlock or last year’s The Queen and the Crone DLC.
While understandable – Creative Assembly has to stop working on the game at some point, and get to work bringing us Total War: Warhammer 3 – fans who had hoped to see races such as the Dogs of War or the humans of the Araby nation are naturally feeling a little disappointed.
It was confirmed on Reddit earlier today by Creative Assembly staff member Grace_CA that “there are only Lord Packs remaining” coming to Total War: Warhammer II as DLC – something that Grace reiterated multiple times so there was no confusion. There will be more DLC coming to the game, but nothing apart from similar two-unit packs such as The Prophet and the Warlock.
This isn’t necessarily bad news, as we were quite impressed by the latest Lord Pack for Warhammer II, but undoubtedly there are plenty of fans who were hoping for more. While the first game got five extra races in DLC, including the Norsca pack, Warhammer II only got two – the Tomb Kings and the Vampire Coast.

While it’s a little disappointing we won’t see the Araby nation, the Dogs of War, or any other races make an appearance – not to mention that this essentially means that support for Warhammer II is beginning to wind down – if it means that Total War: Warhammer 3 gets those races and is even better for it, so be it.
