Total War: Warhammer III Enter the World of Nurgle

Creative Assembly have released a new trailer for grand strategy game, Total War: Warhammer III, focused on the faction of Nurgle.

Following their initial reveal last week, this latest trailer focuses on the rotting, plague-spreading servants of Nurgle. As with the other four primary Chaos Gods, the pus-spewing Lord of Decay will be one of the new playable factions added in Total War: Warhammer III.

The trailer shows off some of the iconic Nurgle units players will get to command in the game; including Plague Toads, Plaguebearers, Nurglings, and Great Unclean Ones. The forces are shown being lead by Ku’Gath- who produces cheaper Nurglings with higher health, and a higher chance of spreading Plague with a reduced Infection cost.

You can find the new trailer below.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

Far beyond the world and its petty wars there exists a dimension of pure, malevolent magic: The Realm of Chaos. It is a terrible place, incomprehensible to the mortal mind. It whispers promises of power, but to behold it is to be seduced by it. To relinquish your soul to it. To become it.

The four Ruinous Powers rule over this place, ever seeking to slip their bonds and engulf the world in a tide of daemonic corruption. Nurgle, the plague god; Slaanesh, the lord of excess; Tzeentch, the changer of ways; and Khorne, the god of blood and slaughter.

On the border between the worlds, two mighty kingdoms stand sentinel: the stern warriors of Kislev and the vast empire of Grand Cathay. But each is beset by its own trials, and now both have cause to cross the threshold and send their armies into the Realm of Chaos.

The world stands on a precipice. A single push will plunge it into cataclysm.

And there is one who schemes to achieve just that, an ancient figure who desires nothing less than to wield supreme power. But to succeed, he will need a champion…

The coming conflict will engulf all. Will you conquer your daemons? Or command them?

Total War: Warhammer III releases February 17th for Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (via the Epic Games Store, and Steam).
