Why is the DLC so overpriced?

TheGherkinTheGherkin Registered Users Posts: 3
Total war: Warhammer has recently added a new DLC which introduces the wood elves to the grand campaign, which is a great idea. However, why does it cost £13.99?? It makes no sense seeing as the base game itself when i bought it cost £39.99, which means the wood elves DLC costs more than a quarter of the games original cost, for one faction!? To me this is totally not worth it and is just a scam, you are better off just playing the factions that are already in the game or wait for the new warhammer 2 to be released. So why have CA done this?

    The mini-campaigns are the issue. They take a fair amount of development time so add a chunk to the cost. That's why the Norsca price is so much more reasonable - no mini-campaign.

    Of course, barely anyone plays the mini-campaigns so the extra cost for them (justified or not) turned out to be a pretty bad idea. However, they've made it clear that they know this, so are focusing less on mini-campaigns and more on well fleshed out, reasonably priced race DLC. Definitely a good thing.

    Yeah i guess, still feel i am better off waiting for warhammer 2 than purchasing any DLC packs for the original warhammer game.
