Total War: Warhammer III A Covenant with Chaos Trailer Showcases Nurgle and Slaanesh Factions

Total War: Warhammer III

Creative Assembly have released a new trailer for their upcoming grand strategy game, Total War: Warhammer III.

While previous trailers have focused on the forces of Khorne and Tzeentch, this latest trailer finally gives players a good look at some of the Nurgle and Slaanesh units they will be able to control. Total War: Warhammer III marks the first time for the franchise that the main four Chaos Gods will be represented with their own factions, complete with unique mechanics and iconic units from the Old World.

The trailer shows a grand battle between the daemonic followers of the Lord of Decay and the Dark Prince, with popular units like Nurglings, Great Unclean Ones, Beasts of Nurgle, Seeker Chariots, Fiends of Slaanesh, and Keepers of Secrets on full display.

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).
