Total War: Warhammer 2’s DLC shows just how much it’s grown and adapted

These days I’m playing Throt the Unclean, who is lord of Clan Moulder, the subset of the skaven empire added by The Twisted & the Twilight DLC. Clan Moulder is all about monsters and mutation, with a new menu for a Flesh Laboratory where I spend mutagen to buy abilities for my units, like giving my rat ogres cellular instability to make them explode. (They get better.) Clan Moulder is the Twisted half of The Twisted & the Twilight, and it shows. Each mutation comes with a risk—those rat ogres might mutate a little too much and gain some weaknesses as well as benefits. But if that happens I can recycle them, tossing them back in the vat in return for a currency called “growth juice” that goes toward creating new troops, who I can then mutate in turn.

Trying out a new subfaction in Total War: Warhammer 2 is a learning experience.

These new currencies, mutagens and growth juice, stack on top of the ones skaven already have to worry about. Food is a constant concern for the ratfolk, and so are rising levels of corruption the longer they dwell in a province. Where the undead and the Warriors of Chaos spread corruption that helps them and hinders their enemies, skaven corruption hurts the skaven as well as their neighbours. It evokes a theme of the faction, encouraging restless consumption. You devour the resources of an area then move on, leaving ruin in your wake. Every settlement is a sinking ship, and you are very much the rats.
