Embark on an immersive journey into the mystical forest realm of Athel Loren in the grand campaign of Total War: WARHAMMER, now featuring the unique and enigmatic Wood Elves race. Known as the Asrai, these elves have a deep connection to their environment, co-existing with the forest spirits and protectors, adopting its creatures for their warhosts, and displaying an unrivaled mastery in archery. Their currency, Amber, is a unique feature, necessary for recruiting elite units and expanding the Great Oak - the spiritual heart of Athel Loren. The campaign’s victory condition is based on this wonder. The Wood Elves can conquer any region on the map, building Asrai Lookouts that serve as outposts. Two new playable Legendary Lords, Orion and Durthu, lead the campaign with their distinct abilities and campaign bonuses. The game also introduces new Lord and Hero types with deep-specialisation skill trees, and a comprehensive Wood Elves army roster. Additionally, the game features the ‘Season of Revelations’ Wood Elves story Campaign, with a unique map and challenging victory conditions. The Wood Elves race offers a fresh and unique campaign experience, requiring strategic use of resources, and skillful battle tactics.
