Blood for the Blood God Released!

Pssst BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD.
If you thought yesterday's update was bloody good, this one's even bloody better. Our Blood & Gore pack is out now - right this minute! - and it's everything you want (as long as what you want is a load of blood and gore, which we assume it is). Trust us.

Want to get it? Of gore-se you do.

And for those wondering, the runes we posted translate to "All blood is borrowed." Mystery solved.

    Looks quite OTT (and therefore, good).

    It does seem, unless my steam has not updated the shop yet, that blood & gore is not available in Germany. I do not mind that at all. his does explain my thoughts why there was no stuff added to it apart from the effects.

    I +1 this.

    What is this?

    Those effects will determine whether I get the DLC or not.

    Bought.

    (But not too fussed about blood, just want to support this amazing game!)

    They are making an FPS. Who knew a company could have a mid-life crisis ...

    So, it appears no one could translate the runes correctly? Was more fun for CA staff than players I guess.
    I'm glad it was leaked, and then released so soon.

    Zombies and grave guard continue to fight after dismemberment.


    Yesssss

    Seems to be a steam-related problem, it also still doesn't show up in the shop for me, eventhough I already bought it...
    If you start the game it should be available via "downloadable content" or whatever it is called in the german translation (playing the game in english myself).

    Very disappointed. We waited just over a month new content and a patch but the only content we get is 1 new unit (Blood for the Blood God doesn't count, I consider "Content" to be Units, Legendary Lords and/or Races.). While I know some people do care a lot about Blood and Gore, I do not personally care about it. At least, according to steamdb, DLC 3 is next and if the mined game files are correct, DLC 3 is the Beastmen Race Pack. That had better come in a shorter length of time from update 1 than the time it took from launch to update 1.

    What's the performance impact for you people that are trying it? I'm waiting for this kind of feedback before buying.

    What a bloody day this is. Thanks CA!

    This is the most misleading naming of a DLC of all times while aslo being the most fittingly named XD

    No Khorne units or anything in the game or DLC but then again it seems like a really great blood dlc.

    Oh and for the negative reviews: Blood and dismemberment is actually something I think is appropriate as DLC. ;)
    Additional animations and effects aside it also make sure that the game isnt only availlable for 18+ in countries like Germany.

    Bought the Wrath of Sparta DLC yesterday and literally have just enough in my Steam Wallet to get this .

    I think that the effects need to be tuned down a bit. I want blood, but it is a bit over the top. I mean, people barely get touched and they spray litters of blood from their bodies....
  • ArgonArgon Senior Member ItalyPosts: 1,489Registered Users
    Very cool CA, please consider to make an option to allow players to keep the blood on the ground, I said an "option" because some people may not like it or Others may have significant fps drops :)

    Thanks and keep up the good work

    PS: where can I opt in for DX 12 beta? I looked into beta tab of TW: warhammer properties but it's not there, I would like to do a benchmark comparison between DX11 and 12, at the moment with all maxed out and a gtx 980 I reach 93 fps as average, I wonder if DX12 can be better
    My favorite factions in TW titles:
    Rome 1 - House of Julii
    Medieval 2 - Milan
    Empire - England
    Napoleon - France
    Shogun 2 - Tokugawa
    Rome 2 - Macedon
    Attila - Western Roman Empire
    Warhammer - Empire (Karl Franz)

    Ok I found it, it's in the graphics settings tab and here the results:

    DX11: 93 fps
    DX12: 80,9 fps :(

    It's not a big deal
