Cross over DLC: How to make it work

Could be 1v1v1v1 lord packs. Everyone gets a little bit and the second dlc fills in any leftover holes.

This idea strikes me as pretty clever, as it would allow CA to pack in multiple races in one DLC to appeal to more people, so even people who do not own WH1 might be interested in the WH2 part of the DLC and get game one races advertised at the same time. Add another discount to WH1 during the release of said Lord Pack and people will have a big incentive to pick it up. Old World updates as FLC, new units and LL as DLC. By adding a few interesting things to 4 races at the same time, they might even get around to improving Beastmen and WE sooner than game 3. Thoughts?


Forward onto Slaughter.

    Just make it so if you purchace the gross-game DLC, you'll get access to ME only as the lords you have in the lord pack.

    Just make a "ME-only" DLC with 4 LL.

    And sell the DLC as a standalone DLC and a bundle with Warhammer 1 to a reduced price.

    The only people that wants an update to the game 1 races are the ones that owns game 1 and game 2, so buying game 1 isnt a problem here.

    I think they should focus on ME and not put these LL in Vortex.

    If you dont own game 1, go and buy it if you want game 1 content in game 2..

    As much as I like the idea of game 1 DLC, there is one thing that annoys me : I really, really don't like ME turn times and it has prevented me from starting new campaigns with Norsca or Kemmler.

    What I mean is that I own both games, but ME only content has lost some value to me, I wonder if that's the case in general. When doing a 4 faction DLC you have the risk of making a good share of it's content not interesting for some players. There are completionnist (many of them active of these forums) who won't hesitate, but the public at large is more of a mystery.

    But yeah, CA will have to give us more ways to play factions separated by game ownership. I do hope that in game 3, the super ME campaign will be accessible to all, with locked factions. And that the stand alone campaign will let us play factions from the previous games if they are relevant and we have the rights to them.

    Right this is the way to non controversially do it or put these new first game lords in vortex then effectively do the same with being able to play me and as base lords needing first game purchase.

    Еh, I play a lot of Mortal Empire, so I want to see more content for it. Waiting for them to finish the end turn times first means we might end up waiting for a while, and by then TWW III would be out and the priority game.

    I think a 1v1 cross-over pack that covers Mortal Empire is fine, the lord might also be available on the Vortex map. I hope they can also synchronize it with game 1 where the LL would ideally be playable as well, but to be honest I'd live with the content being ME- and Vortex-only if I like the character and units.

    Here is the answer I expect

    "damn that anti-consumer CA, for placing my favorite lord behind a paywall, where I have to pay for others that I do not want. Almost as bad as EA, worst company ever, so evil"

    Etc.

    People who complain over DLCs, paywalls and pricing should be happy that they dont play Train Simulator 2019 (really, take a look at the DLCs on Steam for that game..)

    I'll be honest, Total Warhammer was my first CA game, and before I bought, all the comments I'd seen were "Have fun dealing with the ludicrous amount of DLC", so I was a little concerned. I've been pretty stoked with the results though, and have happily bought each DLC since. Let the whiners whine, while the players play.

    At this point I don't care how they do it. I want a cross game LP over just game two LP. Im still disappointed about no more race packs so the next best thing would be a old vs new world LP.
