The next Lord Pack: When?

MaedrethnirMaedrethnir Senior MemberRegistered Users Posts: 7,620
When can we expect it to come out? This month or the next one? I want me some fancy new units!

    Almost assuredly neither of those options. They're still trying to figure out what they're going to put in the WTTAWO later this month, which would be incredibly simple if they had a Lord pack on the way.

    Next Tuesday good for you? ;)

    When 3K dies down a bit and has a few DLC of its own I imagine. Although some overlap could be possible if they think the sales of one doesn't impact the other.

    That's some mighty long think on their part. Probably as long as Chinese wall.

    September perhaps.

    I agree, it seems in WH2 we have been getting DLC roughly about every 5 months

    as much as I wish it would be a shorter period of time

    CA said there won't be WH presence at Gamescom. I suspect 3K might appear there to promote upcoming DLC. I imagine its release would happen in September. I doubt in double release being possible. Of course it's my wild speculation but me thinks it's either 'now' or October.

    Ah I miss old good Game1 cycle and it's 1.5 months between LP. Age of bliss and insurmountable hype.

    I’m thinking October at the earliest. They just released 3K. It’s going to take the spotlight for a while.
  • GoatforceGoatforce Registered Users Posts: 4,205
    Thinking August at the earliest, most likely September. They released 3K itself a month after P&W, I doubt that its DLC will be as disruptive to the next LP as people seem to think, especially as LPs don't really need that much marketing time dedicated to them, only 2 weeks or so.

    I juts moved to another game. ill have to be a interesting DLC hopefully WH1 lords on a Wh2 setting to bring me back.

    Also for a lord pack i think 5 Months its to much... its only 2 LL whit maybe 4 new units. 5 months i would already lost interest in the game. i kind of have, i am moving to other smaller games until Planetfall hits, after that must likely won't buy next DLC unless is like i said above.

    That's a good guess.

    Roughly 3 to 4 months after the beta would be on trend for CA.

    Lol!

    It needs to be pointed out that what people call "cheese" is just playing the game the way it actually exists not in some fictional way they think it is supposed to work.

    If they said that then it needs to come before that or we are going to have a long wait.

    Still lord packs are well not race packs so im not very hyped anyway

    Edit saw Graces reply. Very nice with info. Yeah then we either get a lord pack soon or it is going to be a "long" time

    September-ish, I'd have thought.

    If it's Helfs and Delfs again, the only unit I can think of that might be problematic for them to create is the Medusae or (Heaven forbid..) the Skycutter, so I don't see why it need take much longer.

    The only units both factions are missing wouldn't require much new comparatively. Even the remaining Lord choices wouldn't require much unique.

    I feel November is likely , that's 6 months plus extra for any delays / 3K DLC. I Just hope we get a WH3 announcement this year.

    I hope it is the former option. Waiting another 6 months for LP would guzzle joy out of my cherry heart. It increases expectations and diminishes value of that particular DLC format.

    3K has taken focus off Warhammer and Warhammer is on the backburner now. If we are lucky we might get an announcement for a Lord Pack in August, but the cynic in me makes me lean towards an announcement in September.

    Due to Warhammer being on the back burner for now. The next lord pack more even be as long as next year.

    I think next month is possible but earlier is slightly too early although it Is all good now all races have a lp and considering the last game is unfortunately probably not coming until next year.

    I'm not sure that is the case, I think the issue is that they're trying to reformat/replace WTTAWO, so they may well have something to talk about, just not the way to communicate it atm. I mean Grace suggested that they were planning dev diaries. So it is possible that we will get something next month, though perhaps just the announcement.
