Creative Assembly, the company behind the Total War franchise, has announced a massive update for Total War: Warhammer III. The upcoming Immortal Empires update will reward owners of older games and enhance the game for all players overall.
The upcoming Total War: Warhammer III update will allow players to use every Legendary Lord from all three titles depending on how many the user owns. Adding this many characters has necessitated a change to spawn locations, map improvements, and overall improvements to the game’s design.
Players will also be able to take part in massive 8-player campaigns together.
You can check out the details for the upcoming Immortal Empires update below.
Access all 86 Legendary Lords from all three Total War: WARHAMMER titles.
Be’Lakor is now a Legendary Lord with his own faction.
Dedicated factions for a number of the older Legendary Lords, including: Grombrindal, Helman Ghorst, and Volkmar the Grim.
New starting locations for 29 of the older Legendary Lords.
Improved personal faction mechanics for a selection of the older Legendary Lords (such as Volkmar the Grim).
A new ‘Sea Lanes’ feature, which allow you to move armies between distant lands and continents—from one side of the map to the other—without leapfrogging them all the way across the map.
New dynamic end-game scenarios: randomised mid- to late-game challenges we’re introducing to challenge the late-game steamroll—where the player is so powerful that there’s little-to-no challenge left and less of a reason to complete the campaign. Think Greenskin invasions or resurgences of the undead, as a few examples…
Revamped victory conditions. Most players don’t end up finishing campaigns, and we want to give them better reasons—and a greater level of satisfaction—for doing so. As such, we’ve simplified the victory requirements into more meaningful objectives while avoiding any arbitrary playstyle requirements.
Corruption rework. Players will have new tools for spreading (or reducing) corruption through more active usage of their armies. Small amounts of natural reduction will also be available to uncorrupted factions.
8-player multiplayer campaigns. And as a bonus, only the host of an Immortal Empires multiplayer campaign needs to own all three games. Friends who only own WARHAMMER III will still be able to join the campaign, though their Legendary Lord choices will (naturally) be limited to the ones they own.Total War Official Site
Total War: Warhammer III was released earlier this year to a “Mixed” reception on the Steam store. This new update may be enough to change the course for the final entry in the Total War: Warhammer trilogy.
