Total War: Warhammer III

Sega and Creative Assembly announced Total War: Warhammer III is now available, the latest installment in the popular grand strategy series set in Warhammer Fantasy‘s Old World.

While Total War: Warhammer III is now available, the game is being distributed for Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (via the Epic Games Store, and Steam), and is also on Xbox Game Pass. Anyone who purchases the game before February 24th gets the Ogre Kingdoms race pack DLC for free. Expect our thorough review on the game shortly.

This latest installment in the series places a large emphasis on Kislev and Grand Cathay in their never-ending struggle against the Ruinous Powers. While Kislev has seen a limited presence in Warhammer Fantasy‘s tabletop game, the highly anticipated Grand Cathay allows gamers to explore a part of the Old World that was largely regulated to sparse lore tidbits sprinkled here and there in rulebooks.

Alternatively, players can bring ruin to the realms of man as one of the primary Chaos factions for the first time in the form of Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh, or Tzeentch. There is also a Chaos Undivided faction that represents an uneasy alliance between the daemons, with mechanics based around creating your own fully customizable Daemon Prince.

You can find a launch trailer focused on the Kislev storyline below.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

THE WORLD TEETERS ON THE BRINK OF CHAOS
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?
