New content, The Hunter & the Beast, is set to release on September 11 for Total War: Warhammer II, according to a press release today.

“Across the jungles of the New World Huntsmarshal Markus Wulfhart expands the borders of the Empire, desecrating and sacking temples dedicated to the Lizardmen gods. But death comes in a myriad of guises in these most ancient lands and none are more stalwart in its defense than Nakai the Wanderer. Awoken from a centuries long slumber, he will seek out all those who threaten Lustria.”

Playable in both Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaigns, The Hunter & The Beast introduces two new Legendary Lords for the Empire and Lizardmen races. Both include unique faction and campaign mechanics, in addition to new battlefield units.

The Hunter & The Beast also introduces the largest playable unit: the Dread Saurian. Other units include the elite Huntsmen, War Wagon, Kroxigor Ancients, and the Razordon Hunting Pack.

Additionally, free content is on the way, including a “ferocious yet-to-be-revealed Legendary Lord,” and an update for the Old World.
