Sega Announces Total War: Warhammer III
The popular Total War: Warhammer series is officially continuing, as Sega of Europe today announced Total War: Warhammer III. The conclusion to the Total War: Warhammer trilogy is once again helmed by the team at Creative Assembly and promises to cast players into a major conflict between the daemonic powers and the sentinels of the mortal world.
The team promises major choices for players to make within the climactic clash with strategy on a grander scale than the series has seen to this point. This third entry will feature iconic races from World of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, including the first video game appearance of Kislev and Cathay. This entry features the most diverse group of heroes, monsters, creatures, and powers in series history. The all-new campaign tasks players will saving or exploiting the power of a dying god, with each race offering a unique journey through the Chaos Realm, with an endgame centered on determining the fate of the world.
"Our vision, from the start, was to create a series that felt like an incredible journey through this world we all loved," game director Ian Roxburgh said in a press release. "The enormous support of our players in ensuring the success of the first two installments has pushed our ambition to new heights, and we can't wait for everyone to experience it."
This game's predecessor, Total War: Warhammer II, resonated with us, garnering an 8.75 out of 10 review score when it launched in 2017. In that review, Daniel Tack said that "exciting new races make for a delightful strategy offering." With even more races entering the mix of Total War: Warhammer III, hopefully that once again ups the ante to provide for a thrilling conclusion for fans of the franchise.
We don't yet know when Total War: Warhammer III will be available, but you can pick it up on Steam, Epic Games Store, or direct from the developer.
