Total War: Warhammer III gets new gameplay showcasing Vilitch the Curseling

Total War: Warhammer III

Creative Assembly have released a pair of new trailers showcasing Vilitch the Curseling, the 3rd of the 4 new Legendary Lords coming to Total War: Warhammer III via the Champions of Chaos DLC pack.

Each of these new Legendary Lords are infamous champions of the Dark Gods, with Vilitch the Curseling being Tzeentch’s new playable lord. Also known as the Twisted Twin, Vilitch is a sinister and conniving sorcerer that was fused to his brother Thomin due to the machinations of the Changer of Ways. Thomin, once the stronger and more gifted of the two brothers, is now nothing more than a mindless husk under the control of Vilitch.

You can find a trailer introducing Vilitch the Curseling below.

Creative Assembly also released a trailer showing off some gameplay from the early parts of Vilitch’s campaign.

The Champions of Chaos DLC pack releases on August 23rd, alongside the highly anticipated Immortal Empires 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.

  • 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?
