With Total War: Warhammer 3 scheduled for the next months, here is what fans should know.
A Stunning Conclusion to an Epic Series
The last entry in the Total War: Warhammer franchise is steadily approaching. Here is what is known about the final addition to the epic fantasy strategy series.
Total War: Warhammer 3 is planned to wrap up the story after four years of waiting. The first and second parts were released in 2016 and 2017, respectively, and left fans anticipating the story’s conclusion. They are now going to get it as Creative Assembly has promised the game is going to release before the end of 2021.
The exact release date isn’t officially announced, but British retailer ShopTo might have spilled the beans as it has listed the 4th of November as a release date on its own site. While this isn’t a reliable source, it certainly isn’t something to ignore.
Total War: Warhammer 3 will be released for PC on Steam and the Epic Store. People who already own the first two parts on Steam would do better to get it there as Creative Assembly will not be able to implement cross-store support at launch.
Despite that, the multiplayer will still support both shops, so people from both stores will be able to play with or against one another.
The new addition to the franchise will see the release of two new playable nations – the Kislev and the Cathay. The two of them will expand on the Chaos Gods lore and will continue the game’s story.
Sneak Peek Into The Story
Total War: Warhammer 3 has already had several trailers to keep fans excited. Thanks to that, a fair share is known about what’s to come.
Starting in February, CA released the first announcement trailer that featured the Kislev – one of the upcoming playable races. In the trailer, the proud Slavic-inspired northerners, led by their Ice Queen Katarin, stand against a horde of Chaos daemons.
Then, in May, another trailer was released, once again featuring the new civilization. In that 3-minute cinematic, it becomes quite clear that the Kislev are waging a desperate fight against Chaos invaders, which is sure to tie in with their in-game campaign.
A gameplay trailer followed in the same month, showcasing the new style of battles the new entry is bringing – the Survival Battles. They will be taking place in the Realms of Chaos, where players enter in a dire battle of endurance against the daemons. Completing certain objectives, taking advantage of reinforcement, supplies, and unit upgrades may spell the difference between winning and losing.
Additionally, CA has promised to rework the siege battles – a change that fans have been demanding for a while.
The game developers announced they would be going on a short break, with the next reveal in September. Fans can expect to see the reveal of Cathay – one of the playable civilizations.
Creative Assembly promised that they have a lot in store, so fans should stay tuned.
