Total War: WARHAMMER - Chaos Warriors Race Pack

The Chaos Warriors Race Pack brings a new race with its own new Legendary Lords, units, mounts, items, quest chains and mechanics to Total War™: WARHAMMER®.

  • Three new playable Legendary Lords.
  • New Chaos Warrior mounts, units and monsters.
  • New quests, magic items and abilities.
  • New horde campaign playstyle.

Lay waste to the Old World as the dreaded Chaos Warriors. This Pack includes a full roster of bloodthirsty units, terrifying mounts and monstrous creatures. Lead the corrupted Chaos hordes as one of three new playable Legendary Lords. Embrace the Ruinous Powers as you embark on brand new quest chains, unlocking powerful items and gaining glory in the name of the dark Chaos Gods.

Beyond Kislev, beyond Troll Country, beyond even the barren Norsca Peninsula lies a land shrouded in darkness, frozen in an unnatural, never-ending winter. Here, the mortal realm and the immaterial realm of Chaos overlap, creating an uncontrollable gateway to that infernal dimension from which all manner of nightmarish creatures spew forth.

It is a place where few mortals have dared to venture, and even fewer have returned. The wild people that live in the lands to the south are devout in their worship of the Chaos Gods and many seek to journey north and offer themselves up to become tools of their will. Those that do survive this unholy pilgrimage and live to tell the tale are irreversibly altered. Clad in dark armour bearing the dread marks of ruinous favour, possessed of an unwavering resolve to carry out the will of their malevolent deities, with the indomitable Archaon the Everchosen as their leader, these are the mighty Chaos Warriors!

This pack makes the entire Chaos Warrior race from the main game playable in the Grand Campaign and multiplayer matches; as well as adding entirely new Legendary Lords, Lords, Heroes, Units, Magic Items and more.

Three new Legendary Lords.

Lead the Chaos Warriors as one of three new Legendary Lords, each with their own unique bonuses:

Sigvald the Magnificent:

Beautiful from birth, Sigvald’s fondness for hedonistic excess saw him exiled from his tribe but also gained him a powerful patron: Slaanesh. Now, he heads an army devoted to himself. Slaying anything he deems ugly or unsavoury, he fights as much for his perverse ego as he does for Slaanesh.

Kholek Suneater:

Kholek Suneater is a formidable figure to behold. A gigantic Dragon Ogre, believed by many to be the second eldest of all Dragon Ogres, he towers over the battlefield swinging his gigantic hammer with ease. He is considered by some to be a God.

Archaon the Everchosen:

A former Sigmarite Templar, Archaon stumbled upon an ancient doctrine that contained within the secrets of his faith. Renouncing his allegiance to Sigmar he journeyed north to the dreaded Chaos Wastes to offer his service to the Chaos Gods. Here, the Ruinous Powers gave him their blessing to set out on his quest to become the Everchosen; the Lord of the End Times.

New Horde playstyle

Introduces Horde-style gameplay to Total War: WARHAMMER, allowing the Chaos Warriors to raze enemy settlements and set up encampments anywhere, taking their war spoils with them. The armies of Chaos rest only when exhaustion halts their marching, leaving nothing but corruption and ash in their wake.

New units, buildings, items and technologies.

Unlock new units, buildings and technologies. Seek out the powerful Artefacts of Chaos and become the true Herald of the Apocalypse.

Spread corruption in the name of Chaos!

The foul energies that drive the Chaos Warriors leave ripples that permeate any place they pass through, influencing the populace. Use this to spread dissent amongst the enemies of Chaos, creating cultist uprisings through the proliferation of dark worship.

Key Units:

Chaos Warriors.

No longer fully human, the Chaos Warriors have been altered to become living weapons, honed perfectly to do their dark masters’ work. Imbued with the strength of chaos, enrobed in dark hell-forged armour, they can best several mortal warriors easily. They have no need for food, drink, sleep or other mortal comforts, subsisting on carnage alone.

Chaos Dragon (Mount).

Once, these great beasts sailed the skies as their brethren still do. Now, corrupted by change, these two-headed dragons are malevolent predators in their own right. One head spews forth dark flame, the other corrosive gas. Only the most powerful can ride such a monster, and even then it is only a temporary alliance, Chaos Dragons can never be tamed.


Once proud men, their long-standing service to the Chaos Gods has left them altered. Where once they killed in the name of ambition and glory, their mutations have made them something less than human. Now they fight, whirlwinds of flailing flesh, hair and claw, only to satisfy their unending, unnatural hunger.

Dragon Ogres.

These magnificent, terrible beasts are amongst the most ancient and impressive of all living creatures. Their immortality is a gift from the Chaos Gods, given in exchange for an eternity of dark servitude. Seeking out lightning, they swing their gigantic weapons with ease, cleaving all but the most powerful warriors to ribbons.

Gorebeast Chariot.

A massive construction of hell-forged metal, mutant beast and jagged blade, the Gorebeast Chariot is ridden by some of the most powerful Warriors of Chaos and serves a single purpose: to shatter enemy lines with unstoppable force.


The Hellcannon is a massive artifice of metal and daemonic power that hurls bolts of raw arcane energy across the battlefield, vaporising anything in range. Part war machine, part Daemon, this infernal construct is powered by the liquefied remains of fallen enemies and operated by a sturdy crew of Chaos Dwarfs.

Product received for free
Oh, i get it. They were trying to imitate how evil the chaos warriors faction is, so they ripped it from the game and sold it for a ridiculous price.

CA created the content, the primary villains of Warhammer, released it ALONGSIDE the base game, but has the balls to charge for it, as if it wasn't cut from the main experience simply to milk the consumers.

Don't buy this garbage, or anything else from these ingrates.

The stiff geezers that made this game are total pr*cks and mongs, charging for dlc at release and charging $21 for a re skinned half a faction, and $9 for 2 lords, and 5 units.

You have to pay money for the main villain race of the game?! Chaos is an integral race to the game and you have to pay for the dlc. Wow SEGA you really want to milk this game for every drop of money.

It's pretty damn unforgivable this race as not included on release. To section it out and sell it as DLC content to ensure pre-orders is disgraceful.

Read this closely publishers, this ♥♥♥♥ LOSES you sales.

This is fairly priced when compared to Beastmen DLC. I got it for pre-order, so am neutral on the issue.

I love Warhammer Total War, but I simply cannot play this faction! It is an endless grind inwhich you are constantly auto resolving most battles. The Chaos faction, works exactly like the Huns from Attila Total War, and have a strong "copy and paste" feel to it, that just didn't translate well to this game. The Chaos faction is painful to play at times because you don't feel like the Lord of the Endtimes, you just feel like the Lord of Endless turns. CA, please make some campaign adjustments to this faction.

I am not reviewing the DLC Policy of CA in this review. In fact, I think CA handled this pretty nicely, allowing people who bought Warhams after the first 7 days to get this for free. I just think the campaign really, really, sucks. I'm not much of a fan of Horde gameplay anyway but compared to Attila this REALLY sucked. Beastman is a FAR better DLC with far better and much more fun campaign gameplay, if you want to buy a Warhammer DLC just buy that instead

I don’t agree with this being a preorder bonus... but all and all the chaos faction is pretty damn fun to play and adds a good number of chaos units to the game.

the dlc is actually worth it, CA are doing a great job - though this should have been not a preorder bonus

Okay so getting a few things straight:
It pretty quickly became obvious that CA were going to have a base set of factions and charge as new ones were released, id est Beastmen so far. While an annoying policy, it's a rather petty excuse to discredit the quality of the DLC itself. Great unit roster, relatively fun campaign concept, and watching Kholek prance around obliterating everything in a full Dragon Ogre army never got old.
Finally, initially it WAS free, so if you didn't get it at that point then I hate to say it but... sucks to be you. If it was released later on you wouldn't think twice about the price, so, yeah, don't let the negative reviews put you off. It's fun.;

Fun to play in battles. Campaign is challenging, but not unfair. I would recommend buying it, as it is a different campaign experience taht is very enjoyable.
