Start up a fresh Greenskin campaign for Big Boss
Games Workshop is closing out May with the fourth annual Skulls for the Skull Throne event on Steam. If you’re already well-versed in the countless Warhammer PC games, there are new DLC packs and updates to check out. If you’re thinking of coming in hot, the event is a chance to score some deals.
Most notably, you can pick up Total War: Warhammer II for $20.39, grab the Black Orc Big Boss in a free update, and save on DLC like Rise of the Tomb Kings ($9.49), Curse of the Vampire Coast ($9.49), and The Shadow & The Blade ($6.74). It’s not too late to get into this all-consuming strategy game.
Here’s a stat breakdown for the Black Orc Big Boss, courtesy of Reddit.
My personal favorite of the bunch, the Left 4 Dead itch-scratcher Warhammer: Vermintide 2, is down to $7.49 – a worthy price. The horde-slaying co-op game also slashed prices on its three main DLC packs, but I’d just stick to Back to Ubersreik ($6.69) unless you’re thinking of going all-in with a bundle.
The skull-gathering event also covers a new game launch – that’d be Aeronautica Imperialis: Flight Command, a simultaneous turn-based strategy title – and a very on-brand tie-in with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive that includes 17 collectible stickers. You can rep the Necrons, Tyranids, Orks, Space Marines, and forces of Chaos, assuming you’ve got enough spare change to cover the cost.
I don’t think anyone goes HAM in the gaming space quite like Games Workshop. That almost-anything-goes approach to the IP doesn’t always work out – there are some real duds! – but it’s never stagnant.
