Yesterday, Total War: WARHAMMER II received the new DLC called The Warden & The Paunch, which brought a lot of diverse content. The release of the supplement attracted the attention of a large audience. Therefore, the game got a new record for the number of players who were online at the same time.
According to information from the SteamDB website, over the past 24 hours the peak number of users in the Creative Assembly strategy was 84,920 people. Almost the same indicator is present on the Steam Charts resource. The number there is 84,254 players. The previous record for online was 72,112 users and was set in October 2017. This happened almost immediately after the release of the project.
As for The Warden & The Paunch, it added Lords of Eltharion the Dark Face, and Thunder Puzan to the Total War: WARHAMMER II. Each of them leads its own people. There are the High Elves of Ivresse and orcs from the clan of the Broken Axe tribe, respectively. These factions are available in the Mortal Empire and Vortex Center campaigns. And in the expansion of The Warden & The Paunch, an elf Cavill appeared, who was named in honor of actor Henry Cavill, who is a fan of Total War: WARHAMMER II.
A fresh DLC to the Creative Assembly strategy received 359 reviews on Steam, 82% of which were positive. These are really good results. And we can wait for more of them soon since people have not had enough time to normally evaluate the game yet.
