Total War: Warhammer 3 Thrones of Decay DLC: Release Date, Pricing, and Details

Total War: Warhammer 3 has faced challenges in the past year, but Creative Assembly is aiming to course-correct with the upcoming “Thrones of Decay” DLC. Here’s a breakdown of what you need to know, including the release window and a new approach to pricing.

Total War Warhammer 3 Thrones of Decay DLC Release Date

While an official release date hasn’t been announced, “Thrones of Decay” was initially planned for April 2024. Recent developer insights suggest a possible launch this month, but May 2024 is also a strong possibility. Stay tuned for further updates!

Flexible Pricing for Flexible Players

This DLC marks a shift in how Creative Assembly delivers content. Players will no longer be forced to buy the entire package. Instead, you can purchase the Legendary Lords and units for each race separately:

  • Complete Bundle: Purchase everything at a discounted rate of $22.92 (USD) / £19.10 / €22.92.
  • Individual Packs: Each Legendary Lord and their accompanying units can be bought separately for $8.99 (USD) / £7.49 / €8.99.
  • Completionist Discount: Buying individual packs grants a 15% discount on remaining packs upon completing the collection on Steam.

This approach, according to Total War Head of Community Adam Freeman, “is a new approach for us…something we feel is the right response” to recent pricing concerns. While described as a “one-time change,” its success could lead to more flexible purchasing options for future Warhammer 3 DLC.

The benefit of this structure is twofold. It makes the overall cost more manageable and allows players to pick and choose the Legendary Lords that truly interest them.
