To celebrate the year since the release of developer Creative Assembly’s ambitious Total War: Warhammer trilogy, publisher Sega today announced the release of the Bretonnia, an eighth playable race of chivalric knights and filthy peasants, which will be available for free for all players of the turn-based strategy and real-time tactics title set in Games Workshop’s epic Warhammer 40k universe.

You can check out the update’s “Conquer the World” trailer below:

“We’re rounding off part one with a bang, not a wimple, and it’s a big thank-you to our players”, said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director. “The strength of our DLC sales means we can put more into our free content releases. Not only that, we can have faith in upping our content plans for the next two games.”

“We want to make the most incredible fantasy trilogy possible. And with Bretonnia, we’re bringing our time in the Old World to a close. Production on the sequel to TW: Warhammer has been underway for some time already and is now a key focus for the studio. It’s time to travel to new lands and discover new races.”

“Meanwhile, our historical team are also working on a major triple-A title in an era we’ve not visited yet. Over 1.2 million people play Total War every month, with the majority playing our previous games. We haven’t forgotten that.”

In case you’ve yet to join the fight, Total War: Warhammer is now available on PC via Steam and is priced at $59.99. For more details on the game, be sure to check out the official Steam page here.
