Reprisal Update Bringing Big Changes to Total War: Warhammer II

Warhammer II

An upcoming update for Total War: Warhammer II will see a host of new content added to the already expansive game.

According to a new blog post, recent announcements regarding other Total War titles should not be construed as Creative Assembly putting Warhammer II to the side. Instead, the core team is working on something fans should look forward to—the next big update for the game, titled the ‘Reprisal Update’.

The ‘Reprisal Update’ integrates content changes from Total War: Warhammer’s ‘Foundation Update’ into Warhammer II’s Mortal Empires campaign set, among them Warriors of Chaos design changes, Wood elf followers, new skill trees for Old World Legendary Lords, and the ownership of an entire province by the Empire at the start of the campaign. Additional changes include five new skills for Helman Ghrost, the Immortality skill added to Old World characters, and a “handful of bug fixes.”

More content and changes are planned for Total War: Warhammer II beyond ‘Reprisal’, though the blog post states that these have not yet been dated. Those changes will include the arrival of the Norscans in the Mortal Empires campaign set and the 30th Anniversary Regiments of Renown. In addition, the Warhammer II team is investigating the possibility of giving each Old World Legendary Lord a unique starting position on the campaign map.

At present, the ‘Reprisal Update’ has no set release date, though work on it is nearly complete, and the developer expects to offer the update as an opt-in beta “very soon.”

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot Will Show Unexplored Stories of Secondary Characters

Published

 on

The luminary creator of the Dragon Ball manga, Akira Toriyama, shared new information about the upcoming action RPG, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

Via the Bandai Namco Twitter account, Toriyama revealed that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will depict the backstories of several secondary protagonists. This means that the game will diverge from the story of the manga and give greater insight into Dragon Ball‘s many supporting characters. While a plethora of games depict the events of the Dragon Ball franchise, only a few of them meaningfully expand upon the story’s events, characters, and world.

Toriyama describes Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot as a “fresh new take on the franchise.” Even though Toriyama rarely contributes to Dragon Ball games, he did create much of the lore in the now-defunct MMO Dragon Ball Online, which heavily influenced the story of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games. While not much information is available about Kakarot and Toriyama’s involvement at this time, the title does have an early 2020 release date and a fishing mechanic.
