Creative Assembly have released a new cinematic trailer for their upcoming grand strategy game, Total War: Warhammer III.
This third installment in the popular Warhammer-themed take on the Total War formula will explore some of the lesser represented regions of the Old World; most notably the Russian-inspired frozen north of Kislev, and Grand Cathay, the vast Chinese-like empire in the far east.
The game will also feature armies for the four great Chaos gods of Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh, and Tzeentch as they pour from the Realm of Chaos and attempt to invade the mortal world. Total War: Warhammer III is also acting as a bit of a sneak peek at The Old World, a full tabletop reboot of Warhammer Fantasy in development by Games Workshop after the setting was initially retired to create Age of Sigmar.
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 launches late 2021 for Windows PC, Linux, and Mac (all via Steam).
