Total War: WARHAMMER - Blood For The Blood God

It has been speculated by some that this DLC was created (rather than being included as part of the base game) because blood and gore effects in a game attract a higher age restriction from many ratings agencies/boards, and so had to be sold separately to the main game if the main game were to keep its original rating. However, there has been no official statement from Creative Assembly to support this claim.

Total War: WARHAMMER - Blood For The Blood God

From the icy peaks of Naggaroth to the arid reaches of the Southlands, each race struggles for dominion. As their conquests grow, the land turns crimson, and rivers run red with the blood of the slain!

  • Total War: Warhammer 3 is a game about war, fighting, and daemons who claim the skulls of their enemies simply because it's a very fun activity to do with your pals. Much like its predecessors, it's also a game that has us wondering what its Blood for the Blood God DLC release date might be.The Total War series' Blood DLC has always been one of its most controversial elements, given the subject matter of both its historical and recent fantasy games. Warhammer 3's initial lack of blood is perhaps even more egregious, given how Khorne has his own playable faction, but its release date shouldn't be too far away.Total War: Warhammer 3 Blood for the Blood God "Much like Blood for the Blood God 2, it will be free for anyone who owns a previous version of the DLC for either WARHAMMER I or II. It will be released soon after launch," the developer previously noted in a FAQ article that also confirms a Blood DLC is coming to Warhammer III.Had it followed the same pattern as its counterparts from past entries in the series, Total War: Warhammer III's Blood for the Blood God DLC should have gone live roughly a month after the game's launch, placing its release date around mid-March.Total War: Warhammer 3's Blood for the Blood God DLC release date: August 23, 2022

That, however, didn't happen. When the developer shared Warhammer III's roadmap, in late April, it revealed that the game's Blood DLC was expected to launch in Q3 2022.In the second part of July, publsiher Sega revealed that Warhammer 3's Blood DLC is set to launch alongside Immortal Empires and the Champions of Chaos Lords Pack, on August 23.The third game in the trilogy is also a bit of an odd one in this regard. While you won't see much of it when cutting enemies to pieces just yet, there's at least one map that features an entire pool of blood located, unsurprisingly, within Khorne's realm. Of course, it could be that the Lord of Skulls also has a deep love for ketchup.The one silver lining regarding the DLC is how you won't have to purchase it again if you've already done so for one of the previous entries in the series.With Total War: Warhammer III's Blood for the Blood God DLC release date covered, check out our review and what we know about Steam Workshop support.Total War: Warhammer III is out now on PC.

Total War: Warhammer's first DLC release may have been inadvertently leaked to the world, with a Russian trailer showing up on Youtube before any official announcement. Like Total War games of the past, it brings the blood and the gore, though this time with a very Warhammer flavour.

The lack of blood was one of the most noticeable aspects of the latest Total War game, mostly because it featured brutal attacks from monstrous creatures and lords alike, but that will change following this release, which slathers the battlefield in the red stuff like its fertiliser. Although more thematic than any big addition to the game, Khorne is the Blood God and he drinks deeply as the Warhammer world's inhabitants slaughter one another.

If you're wondering why the blood in Total War games is downloadable content, potentially requiring a small investment to acquire too, it's to avoid the age rating of the game sending it out of the reach of many a young tabletop fan. With DLC blood, the age rating can remain low, making the game that bit more inclusive.

Khorne, also known as the "Blood God,"[3a] the "Lord of Murder"[3k], the "Lord of Skulls," "Hunter of Souls," and "the Hound"[5] in Norsca, is the major Chaos God of war, hatred, wrath, rage, murder, blood, strength, courage and martial honour.

Khorne is the second eldest of the major Ruinous Powers and his waxing strength in this time of constant conflict often renders him the mightiest of the Chaos Gods in his effect on the mortal world and in the Great Game between the gods.[1f][2a][2b][3a] His domain encompasses the most basic and brutal of sentient emotions -- hate, anger, rage, the desire for destruction and the joy of killing one's enemies. Every act of killing or murder in the mortal world feeds and empowers Khorne; the more senseless, vicious and bloodthirsty, the better.[3g]

Khorne is the most violent and destructive of the four major Chaos Gods. He represents unrestrained aggression, mindless frenzy, and bloodshed on the battlefield. His lust for blood is unquenchable, and he is forever goading his followers to take up arms and murder in his name. Khorne'sanger and violence is an unbridled force that targets both friends and foes alike. He watches scenes of barbarism and slaughter with delight, and it is said he sounds his horn across the Chaos Wastes to incite further frenzy. During times of utter destruction and murder, Khorne's bellows resound in the Chaos Wastes, causing madness in any that might hear. Of all the Ruinous Powers, Khorne is the biggest instigator of war and destruction, constantly whipping up his followers to lay siege on the cities, towns, and hamlets of the Old World.[2d]

However, though Khorne is the god of bloody slaughter, he is also the god of martial pride and honour, of those who set themselves against the most dangerous foes and earn victory against the odds.[3g] His warriors, though gore-maddened berserkers all, take no artful approach to killing, for such indulgent displays serve only to empower Slaanesh, the honourless adversary of Khorne amongst the company of the Chaos Gods.[1f][2a][2b][3a]

A man that has put his faith in Khorne, however, is just as likely to be a blood-crazed killer as he is an honourable warrior, and oftentimes he will be both at the same time. Khorne, like all the Chaos Gods, has two sides, for he is the embodiment of martial honour and courage,[1f][2a][2b][3a] said to smile upon all feats of valour, strength, and blood-drenched warrior skill.[3g] Yet Khorne is also the divine patron of proud warriors who set themselves against the odds and emerge triumphant through the display of savagery, murderous wrath and unending bloodlust.[3g]

It is not uncommon to see Khornate Chaos Warriors and Champions of Khorne fighting amongst themselves, duelling to the death to prove their skill in combat and rise higher in the eyes of their lord. Khorne ultimately cares not from where the blood flows and the skulls are taken, only that such acts are done in his name. Only bloodletting through physical combat is acceptable however, for Khorne disdains the use of all magic. None of his followers are permitted to be sorcerers, although some will carry magic-imbued weapons or armour in order to augment their killing ability.[4a]

All of Khorne's Daemons are built to kill quickly and efficiently. While the troops of the other Ruinous Powers may fall back to recover or bring other talents into play, the Daemons of Khorne always fight to the death. Cursing their enemies, their mounds of sinewy muscle carving their last steps through the front lines, Khorne's Daemons continue to spill blood and claim skulls until the last roar of defiance and rage from their gaping maws has been silenced. Then their bodies, further sacrifices to the lord they served so faithfully, are crushed to dust and ash by the next wave of his blood-crazed troops, all screaming endlessly "Blood for the Blood God, Skulls for the Throne of Khorne!" as they pour into glorious combat.[4a]

Worshippers of Khorne include Chaos Warriors, psychotics, and berserkers. Many are sometimes drawn to his promises of bloodletting. As noted, many tribes in Norsca have been converted to his call of eternal warfare and spend their days raiding villages along the coasts of the Old World. On occasion, a warrior caught up in the frenzy of battle hears the chant of Khorne in his ears and is driven to madness, forever pledging his service as he covers himself in the blood of the fallen. Horrified companions usually kill these rare aberrations, but some slip away, making their way to the Chaos Wastes to join Khorne's horde.[2d]

Khorne is also traditionally visualized as a massive, humanoid being with skin the colour of blood. He sits upon a grand, brass throne atop a mountain of skulls and blood-covered bones -- the trophies of those that he or his followers have slain in battle or killed in his name. Khornewears intricately carved plate armour, covered in writhing runes and faces screaming in pain and torment. A huge, winged helmet sits on his head, partially obscuring his inhuman, snarling face. He favours weapons that spill the most amount of blood -- massive greatswords, axes, and huge-bladed pole arms.[2d]
