Creative Assembly was pleased to announce that the Assembly Kit and Steam Workshop support for Total War: WARHAMMER will be added for launch, and the development team will be assisting some modders in readying their mods to release day and date with the game.
It had been announced before that this title would not benefit from official mod and Workshop support, but Creative Assembly and Games Workshop have been working on the paperwork to make the much-demanded fan feature a reality. Now, they have confirmed that, from launch, players will be able to do the following:
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 withthe 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.
Are you excited that they will be able to make mod support a reality after all?
