Creative Assembly the maker of Total War: Three Kingdome revealed some post-launch plans about the new kind of DLC the game will feature along with a Modding tool that will be out shortly after the launch. The new type of DLC will be called Chapter Pack.
Creative Assembly is adding notable chapters from Romance and creating a new start position that will reflect their events. This adds a cost of new and familiar characters, features and objectives. Players can pick from new heroes and villains to populate new chapters and there will be new faces also.
In terms of ‘size’ of content, you can expect a Chapter Pack to be somewhere between a Culture Pack and a Campaign Pack. There will be a serious clutch of new playable factions and a raft of new mechanics to get to grips with in each, while you’ll be playing across all of China.
The modding part features an Assembly Kit that opens up new modding opportunities for players. The beta edition is already in the test by a group of modders. The developer also confirmed the modding tool will not be available at the launch, because of its instability but it will come out shortly.
Pre-load starts from 6 pm BST on Monday the 20th of May. If you’ve pre-ordered you can start downloading game files from then but don’t forget that the game will only unlock at launch, which is 8 am BST Thursday the 23rd May.
