Creative Assembly officially announced today that Total War: Warhammer will be getting both the Assembly Kit and Steam Workshop support for the game at launch. In addition, the development team for Total War will assist modders in helping to ready their mods to release day and date with the game.
This initiative was the result of Creative Assembly and Games Workshop working on how to make this feature a reality. Here are the features players will have access to for the game at launch:
- Visit Steam Workshop For Total War: WARHAMMER – and upload, browse, follow, discuss and install available mods straight from Steam, and access and manage them from the new Total War Mod Manager.
- Get the Assembly Kit – CA’s modding tool box, previously released for Steam Workshop, will release with the Database Editor and BOB for modifying and exporting database tables and campaign start positions, with the aim to add further functionality, including battle map editing, later in the year.
- Download Mods – Attendees to CA’s Mod Summits over the last three years will be supplied early access to the game, to help populate the Steam Workshop from day one. Also, well-known modders Magnar and Dresden will receive specific help from the dev team to produce certain mods. Magnar is designing a Legendary Lord Start Position Mod; customising start positions so that Legendary Lords will start in different locations from Race Leaders, while Dresden is engineering a Regional Occupation Mod; altering the settlement rules to enable each race to settle every region.
Total War: Warhammer is due out on May 24 for Windows PC on Steam.
