The Shadow & The Blade is the latest Legendary Lordpack for Total War: WARHAMMER II. Introducing Malus Darkblade and Deathmaster Snikch both with their own objectives, mechanics, units and playstyle. FEATURES: Two richly themed and unique Legendary Lords lead their own factions: Malus Darkblade leads Hag Graef for the Dark Elves, and Deathmaster Snikch leads Clan Eshin for the Skaven. Each Legendary Lord brings their own unique faction mechanics, quest-chains, legendary items, skill-trees and campaign narrative. Adds new powerful units and heroes for both Dark Elves and the Skaven. Lethal chariots and pain-wracked Medusae for the sadistic warmongers of Hag Graef. Cunning stealth magic, warp-infused weapon teams and deadly covert infantry for the assassin-inspired units of Clan Eshin. Features new elite Regiments of Renown to lay catastrophic waste to your enemies across the New and Old Worlds. Both Lords can be used in campaign, custom and battle modes. And are also playable in Mortal Empires, the massive free campaign available to owners of both Total War: WARHAMMER and Total War: WARHAMMER II.

Total War: Warhammer 2 - The Shadow and the Blade Reviews

Creative Assembly delivers one of the best DLC packs for the Total War: Warhammer series yet.

Is Malus Darkblade done justice? As a character, yes. But while his campaign is decent, Snikch's is one of the weaker we've seen in these Lord packs, lacking some of CA's usual focus in mechanics and theme.

Read full review

What should’ve been an interesting conflict between two very aggressive factions turns into a cakewalk due to Warhammer II’s lack of diplomacy nuance. This coupled with expansions such as “The Prophet and The Warlock” makes “The Shadow & The Blade” a solid, albeit disappointing entry in the Total War: Warhammer II saga.
