‘Warriors of the North’ DLC Announcement

We’re excited to announce that we’re working on another DLC for Battle Brothers. In other words, there’s going to be even more content for that game that you like. The name of the upcoming DLC is going to be ‘Warriors of the North’.

As the name suggests, the focus of the DLC will be on introducing a new human faction hailing from the north. This faction follows the old ways of raiding and sacrificing prisoners to cruel gods. They’ll bring more regional flavor to the northern parts of the map, as well as a different challenge to fighting brigands in the north at every stage of the game. This DLC will be focused on new content, and it will be smaller in scope than ‘Beasts & Exploration’. This also means that you won’t have to wait quite as long until you can play it!

Here’s the rough list of features we’re aiming for:

  • A variety of new human opponents with their own fighting style and equipment, providing a fresh challenge at every stage of the game, including the late game
  • Different origins to pick for your company, each with different starting characters, equipment and circumstances, as well as special rules that impact your campaign from beginning to end
  • New nordic and rus inspired banners, armors and helmets
  • A new legendary location
  • New contracts
  • New events

In addition to these major features, the DLC will also include countless smaller additions. Just like in the past, we’ll explain all major features and most minor ones in detail in future dev blogs as we go along, so you’ll always know what we’re working on and why. We expect to be finished within the next few months and will announce a release date and final feature list once we’re closer to the finish line.

Alongside the DLC, which will not be free, the game will also receive a sizable free update again. This update will contain a whole bunch of improvements, quality-of-life features and balancing changes, as well as some minor content additions.

Join us next week for our first dev blog on the new DLC!

    Epic news! Instant buy… :D
    Anyway can you guys please allow taxidermist to repair/renovate the legionairs armors and helmets, it would be really great, because that is potentially a lot of armor you made, and we can’t really use it, because it looks old, and rusty, but the base look of those armors helmets, especially ancient guards armor looks fantastic… In my opinion you should consider that. Not much work for you, but lot of armor content for players…

    I really like the coming content for new dlc.

    I know you have to prioritize what is the best addition to add for such an expansion, so not everything can be done at once or at all. But can you tell me how the chances stand for more diverse and especially more specialized battlefields? For example fighting on a townsquare, on a farm, in a brigand camp/fort, castle ruins or orc encampments, oh and lets not forget the everpresent graveyards. I love the game, but all you ever see are the same generic environments which have little to no connection to the location you are actually fighting at safe for the biome and heights.

    Amazing to see another DLC on the way – I JUST HOPE – we finally get some unique battle maps (ive been dying to battle zombies in cemeteries or orcs in their bases etc etc) would pay literally anything for it XD

    Overall I find human and greenskin opponents the most fun to play against.
    Good DLC theme choice.

    Great news, another instant buy for me!

    I agree with Malthus and drew1988west about the location battle maps, but I can see it would be a lot of work and perhaps something that seems more like a core update of the game than a paid DLC…speaking for myself, though, I would definitely pay for it :-)

    The helmet on the lower left brother looks like a “refurbished” Ancient Dead Royal Guard. …Are we getting a new mechanic to rebuild ancient armors?

    Do you plan on adding the towns and villages battle maps. I remember some1 from your team saying something along the lines that it got left on the cutting floor and he was sad about it. This was when you annonced no more plans for BB. Now that you are making DLC forit, would maps of villages towns castles etc be something you would be willing to make
