I think CD, Khuresh and Ind are all we are getting for race packs.

    Khuresh and Ind seem highly unlikely.

    Dogs of War and Hobgobs are the frontrunners alongside Chaos Dwarfs.

    Hmm, nah man. Both continents are starring at us in our faces. Be a shame if those aren't eventually filled with the proper races.

    Hopeium and what's likely are two different things.

    DoW had an army book and they said all races with army books would eventually be in game. Dogs definitely ahead of Ind and Khuresh... and the useless slightly taller gobbos riding wolves that for some reason so many people want.

    If CA continues the trend of wh3 we should be thankful if we get cd
  • PPerunPPerun Registered Users Posts: 366
    Lore wise Ind and Khuresh are indeed unlikely but map wise they are obvious candidates. So who knows? And on top of that there is CA who told us to expect unexpected races coming.

    Basing on how CA treats Chaos, my prediction is that at some point we will either get packs with minor races or one big dlc (possibly advertised with DoW) to make custom factions and containing skins of snake people, tiger men, amazons, etc
  • Sheikh_Nimr#9382Sheikh_Nimr#9382 Riyadh, Saudi ArabiaRegistered Users Posts: 1,658
    Chaos Dwarfs are guaranteed, of course, but Ind and Khuresh have been explicitly rejected by CA. Twice. So, they're hopium, too.


  • JerroserJerroser Registered Users Posts: 793
    Chaos Dwarfs are really they only one that's in anyway a certainty. I would probably rate DoW to be the next most likely but Ind and Khursh are still very in the "maybe but don't get your hopes up" category.
  • davedave1124#4773davedave1124#4773 Senior Member Registered Users Posts: 21,395
    Khuresh has never been explicitly rejected but, the idea that anything beyond the CDs is hopium is painfully uninformed. What? The game is getting one new race and nothing else? Yeah ok.

    Let’s be honest, we have no idea what we are getting beyond the CDs but, at the very least we know we are getting something.

    Dave has no clue about the issue. Ind, Nippon and Khuresh were explicitly rejected:

    Well, CA said probably never, so, wishful thinking aside, their hopes are basically nonexistent. Considering that companies, including CA, refrain from being 100% absolute, "probably never" is the most definitive rejection you can ever get.

    Same old arguments. ‘Muuuuuh we are getting monos and nothing else because a 6 year old leak says so’. How did that turn out?

    In the Sotek stream Andy specifically said Nippon and Ind, in the IT stream he refused to name them. It’s not his fault the magazine writer names Khuresh.

    And this idea, that as the DLCs continue to sell, CA won’t even think about taking advantage of those huge landmasses they have created is rather silly.

    How many times do you have to get it wrong before this dubious sense of certainty about future releases becomes a little more realistic?
  • Chronoid#8775Chronoid#8775 Registered Users Posts: 341
    I think as far as DLC races are confirmed, Chaos Dwarfs are "almost sure", Dogs of War and Undead Legions are "likely" (The fiormer having had an army book, the later being the most likely option for undead in TOW) and anything beyond that is either a long shot "maybe" or, in case of the explicitely stated not to be coming (Ind, Nippon, Araby) mere wishful thinking.

    Ind and Khuresh are already hopium

    That only applied to races with army books that were valid in 8th edition, the actual quote looks like this.
    "
    [AH] The plan is to get all sixteen armies (and, yes, I mean 16 despite there being 15 army books…) in the game by journey’s end. As to the order in which they appear, well, you’ll have to wait and see"

    https://www.grimdarkmagazine.com/interview-total-war-warhammer-writer-andy-hall/

    Those 15+1 armies are the races that had army books that were valid in 8th edition plus the Chaos Dwarfs who had a valid 8th edition supplement as part of the Tamurkhan book. DoW were removed as a race after 6th edition which is why they are not included in the quote above. If CA had included them it would have been 17 armies and 16 army books in the quote.

  • Makuhico#8254Makuhico#8254 Registered Users Posts: 411
    Ind a d kuresh will come.

    But since CA claim they have more people in the DLC team probably they can spend more resources in more factions.

    Not that many, vocal minority at best for me lol

    It would be sad to not having this area filled. We even have watchtower in Cathay as the dark elve ones to monitoring the threats below.

    I could see Kuresh and Ind after Chaos Dwarf and Dog of Wars. With this for we have a complete map and a complete experience of the warhammer world

    Maybe adding some hordes faction as Attila Total War for faction they are nothing more in lore (Krugan, Hun, from norsca roster and some gobbo from Chaos Dwarf roster. It could be managed without that much budget and fill well their part)

    Did you watch the video? He mentions Khuresh twice (1:20:31 and 1:20:49) in that specific question.
    The rest of the rant was cute, but a tad inaccurate and irrelevant.

    The rest of the rant was cute, but a tad inaccurate and irrelevant.
    And Andy Specifically says 'I'm not mentioning the names' when he confirms their status. I think we have already had this conversation were you consistently get things wrong, start questioning people's comprehension, just before you get corrected by multiple people. Learning English is a journey, you've still got someway to go. Also, you seem to have missed the part where Andy said he refuses to look at fan art in reference to Khuresh just in case it impacts his future work.

    I know, your little misguided rants about the monos was probably a little embarrassing for you, sorry (not sorry) for bringing them up. I suggest just learning from past mistakes rather than having your usual temper tantrum.

    Khuresh are likely coming at some later stage, like it or not.
    Ind probably too.
    Chaos Dwarfs extremely likely.
    DoW hopefully.

    You just can't stop doomsaying new races can you? So Andy said no before, great, point taken.

    Now be a sport and take the counterpoints:

    1. CA have changed their plans before, many times
    2. Cathay exists both in TW and Old World, which means Far East is being worked on actively by GW.
    3. The MOST RECENT comment from CA on new races was completely non-committal, and was followed by a hint from a Lead Designer for Khuresh
    4. The landmasses are in the game and they are HUGE (watch GBOG's video to see the size in game)

    Nothing is guaranteed to happen besides CD at this point, but nothing is guaranteed to not happen either (admittedly except Araby)

    I do hope that you will be fair in this discussion.
    My optimistic predictions:

    RoC map will get expanded.
    Ind and Khuresh will get added to the game.
    CA will support the game for more than 5 years.

    But they sort of already did with their lands being in the game (but not yet playable).
    They are big chunk of the map relatively.
