Hello, everyone I just returned from a four-week trip and lets directly go into business!
lately, I was thinking about the DLC road Warhammer 1 followed and how it was going to be similarly implemented in Warhammer 2 according to CA themselves. Also, their statement that they will implement the 16 major factions (8th edition).
That and also in combination with the probability that every standalone game will be full priced €60,-(in my case, no idea what it will be in pound or dollar) made me conclude that they are simply just not enough major factions to give all the stand alone games equal content.
let's not forget that Warhammer 1 already fields 8 of the 16 major races. That leaves 4 races per both titles without the possibility for any FLC or race packs.
Imagine game 2 having the four races: Lizardmen High Elves Dark Elves Skaven And race pack Tomb Kings. No FLC That will leave game 3 with only three major races and no room for further race packs and FLC.
It would hard to imagine to have three games all three of them the same price but game 1 with 8 races, game 2 with 4 or possibly 5 races and game 3 with 3 possibly 4 races if they keep Tomb Kings for game 3. There is just not enough major races to make equal content for the three games.
That's why I think the below will happen. Game 2 Lizardmen High Elves Dark Elves Skaven Tomb Kings Araby Vampire Coast or maybe Amazons Estalia (starting with an expedition camp in Lustria)
Game 3 Splitting the Chaos Daemons faction into: Khorne Tzeentch Nurgle Slaanesh and adding further races: Ogres kingdomes Chaos dwarves Kislev
Game three will maybe include the northern part of the old world with a playable Kislev in a more detailed province with more towns and cities but using the regular Kislev province in the mega campaign.
With the use of minor races all three games have the same content and in my opinion the same worth. I let you guys ponder of which of the races will be FLC or part of a race pack.
I will start a thread soon about game mechanics ideas for a playable Araby, I already did one for Kislev a while ago but don't know how properly link threads and it's probably outdated anyway.
let me know what you guys think and feel free to constructively butcher my theory.
Btw for those who say those minor factions had no TT figures, it's not a Warhammer tt game to video game but a video game made in the Warhammer lore. And the Warhammer lore is rich and diverse and gives a lot of opportunities and inspiration to be drawn from to use by CA.
