Total War: WARHAMMER – Blood for the Blood God DLC Released

Creative Assembly now offers Blood for the Blood God, the newest DLC for Total War: WARHAMMER, their fantasy-themed strategy game. This trailer shows off the bloody good time this offers, and here's word:

In Creative Assembly’s critically acclaimed Total War: WARHAMMER, The Old World is riven by countless battles fought. Now experience the carnage in technicolour glory with the arrival of the Blood for the Blood God DLC! All-new events, particle effects, dismemberments, and gory, gib-spattered deaths will serve to bring your gameplay to untold heights of gruesomeness.

Cower as giants chew the heads off hapless soldiers, trolls rip their foes limb from lifeless limb, and the scything tails of dragons tear through units in an explosion of blood and guts. Brand new campaign events serve to encourage slaughter across the world, all to the laughter and delight of The Blood God. Dedicate your wars to him, and bathe the world in crimson!

This is even worse then the disgraceful Horse Armor bullshit from Bethesda way back when. Pay extra for blood effects? I'd set Gregor Clegane loose on them for this shit. Shame. Shame. Shame.

Sega and marketing is the reason, and that they sell blood DLC is actually a legal issue, they can't give a away the DLC for free, because that would increase the rating to M for the base product...

Fine, then sell it for $0.10. This is just selling pieces of the game after the fact, aka, the thing DLC is always accused of being, and in this case legitimately so.

Why is this not the default gore setting for TW: Warhammer? I thought the ESRB rating was 'M' this entire time and I was shocked to see that it was instead 'T'.

Also, violence like that nets you sale and advertising bans in many countries.... as it is the game is a game, the visual blood and gore effects add nothing.

Is SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE going to be next?

If it were a famous battle cry from the lore like "Blood for the Blood God!" is

I like the game, it's one of their best Total War games, but I'm giving this DLC a miss until it's on sale, at least. It should have been included with the game and just been toggled as unavailable in regions where it couldn't be sold as a feature. Everyone else should have been given the option to enable/disable the gore.

They remove it so they can get past the censors in some nations. Even having it as an option would prevent them from selling some places.

They then sell it to you (assuming you aren't in one of those nations) for an extra 5% game's price.

Your first mistake was playing Elder scrolls online...

Because they've done it in previous Total War games and made money on each one. I've sure they make the DLC at the same time as the base game.

*shrugs* kind of like why they sell meat and barbeque sauce separately really.

This used to bother me also, but really, they have to make money, they know this does, and nobody is making people buy it.

This is a really lame DLC. It should have been included in the game itself.
