New Total War: Warhammer III trailer shows Azazel in action

Total War: Warhammer III

Creative Assembly have released a 12-minute gameplay trailer showing off Azazel, one of the new Legendary Lords being added in Total War: Warhammer III‘s upcoming Champions of Chaos DLC.

Champions of Chaos is Total War: Warhammer III‘s first big post-launch DLC pack, and will be adding 4 new Legendary Lords to the game for the foul Ruinous Powers. Azazel, the Prince of Damnation, is the leader of Slaanesh’s Ecstatic Legion. You can see this depraved devotee of the Dark Prince in action in the trailer below, which showcases some of his campaign.

The Champions of Chaos DLC releases on August 23rd, which coincides with the launch of the massive and highly anticipated Immortal Empires update. In addition to the new trailer, Creative Assembly also detailed some of the changes and balance tweaks players can expect in the update.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

The last roar of a dying god ruptures the boundary between worlds, opening a portal to the Realm of Chaos. From this maelstrom, the four Ruinous Powers – Khorne, Nurgle, Tzeentch and Slaanesh – emerge, spreading darkness and despair.

The stern warriors of Kislev and the vast empire of Grand Cathay stand at the threshold, as a vengeful Daemon Prince vows to destroy those who corrupted him. The coming conflict will engulf all. Will you conquer your daemons? Or command them?


  • RAISE A MIGHTY ARMY – With seven unique races and hundreds of units under your command, raise an army and dominate in epic real-time battles across a world of breathtaking scale and spectacle.
  • BUILD AN EMPIRE – In the most ambitious and groundbreaking Total War title to date, dive into a captivating narrative that will take you to the mind-bending Realm of Chaos and back again. Forge your empire in a strategy sandbox that ensures no two campaigns are ever the same.
  • CHOOSE YOUR HERO – Play as 10 Legendary Lords! Will you side with the Chaos Gods and take one of their Daemonic Champions, play as an ancient transforming Dragon from Grand Cathay, defend the frozen nation of Kislev with the Ice Queen or play the ultimate villain as the Daemon Prince?
  • UNLEASH YOUR INNER DAEMON – Customise the Daemon Prince to your own unique design with a huge suite of body parts and powers, creating billions of potential combinations to suit your own playstyle.
  • MULTIPLAYER CHAOS – Multiplayer is now bigger than ever. With the vast 8-player Realm of Chaos multiplayer campaign, the intense 1 v 1 Domination mode, the story-driven multiplayer campaigns built around Kislev and Grand Cathay and ranked & custom battles, there’s no shortage of ways to cause chaos with friends.

Total War: Warhammer III is available for Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (via the Epic Games Store, and Steam), and is also on Xbox Game Pass.
