Quite literally they want blood money.

I wouldn't be surprised if we start to see publishers charge for ammo in shooters or food in survival games or fuel in racing games.
Even the companies that I thought were better than this are doing it. Its no different to Apple selling you a stand for you £5k monitor at an extra £1k, why cos some idiots are paying it.
People stop buying loot boxes and half done DLC these companies will have to find another way to get money out of us, like releasing complete and working games and worth while DLC. Or we can just keep buying hats for £5 a go.....
I paid for Minecraft and have had years of updates and content, Terraria, 8 years after release free update (that EA would have charged me for if it was for one of their games) but oh you want blood in a war game, that's an extra £2. Oh you want the 5 factions that we missed from this era and make the game miss key parts of the history, they're an extra £10 each, Oh that general that was one of the most important parts of the entire war? £5 please.
Its a good game, missing so much from the history and story but that's alright I can pay extra to have a completed game....

They've done this for almost a decade. Nothing wrong with it. By making it DLC they lower the age rating.

It's not like they just activate blood. New animations too. Which are expensive.

Yeah, it's the extra animations and the fact they offer a blood amount slider that makes this more than a "they just disabled the blood in the main game" kinda DLC.

If they just made this game for an age rating those animations would never have existed.

TBH the Total War series is niche enough to justify the pricing IMHO. £2 isn't that much to pay, but I can understand why people get annoyed at this kinda thing.

I get it too but you also have to remember region laws and whatnot. It probably gets complicated.
I see why people do, but nobody is forcing you to buy it.
