Total War: Warhammer gets a new playable race, the Beastmen, as its next Campaign Pack launches on the 28th July. It'll cost 13.99.

Call of the Beastmen is the game's first substantial expansion, introducing the new race into the Grand Campaign, as well as adding a new Story Campaign called An Eye for an Eye.

If you don't know much about the Beastmen, the trailer below will give you some idea of what to expect. Also known as the Cloven Ones, they're big and they're hairy and they usually have horns. They also don't like humans very much.

Gameplay-wise, it looks like they'll play similarly to other Total War horde factions, preferring to sack and raze settlements, rather than claim territory for themselves.

"They feature an array of unique gameplay mechanics," said developer Creative Assembly. "Including the ability to travel through overgrown Beastpaths to outmanoeuvre unsuspecting foes and, through a dark bond with Morrslieb, the Chaos Moon, perform twisted acts of faith to gain its favour."

Warhammer Fantasy new to you? You'll probably find that quote quite baffling. Sorry!

Alongside this Campaign Pack, Total War: Warhammer will also receive a free update that introduces Amber Wizards to the Empire roster. My favourite Amber wizard is Allor from Warhammer: Shadow of the Horned Rat. Who is your favourite Amber Wizard?
