LONDON – August 23rd, 2022 – SEGA Europe Ltd. and The Creative Assembly Ltd. are proud to announce the launch of Champions of Chaos and the Immortal Empires Beta for Total War: WARHAMMER III.
Watch the Champions of Chaos launch trailer here:
Champions of Chaos:
Fit for a champion, this Lords Pack welcomes four new Warriors of Chaos Legendary Lords instead of the usual two, each of whom is aligned with one of the four ruinous Chaos Gods. Embark on campaigns of destruction with new gameplay mechanics, wreak havoc with over fifty new battlefield units, and experience a brand-new narrative that will see you rise from pawn to power.
Four New Warriors of Chaos Legendary Lords:
The Champions of Chaos have risen through the ranks thanks to their infamous deeds to become the favoured of the four Dark Gods, they are; Valkia the Bloody, the deadly but daemonic consort of Khorne. Festus the Leechlord, the deranged plague-doctor of Nurgle. Azazel, Prince of Damnation, the ecstatic heir of Slaanesh. Vilitch the Curseling, the conjoined sorcerer-twin of Tzeentch.
A New Campaign Experience:
In the ancient arena-city of Zanbaijin, the servants of the Chaos gods have clashed for millennia and the souls of those who fall in battle are sealed within the Altar of Battle. As a Champion of Chaos, you must earn the gaze of your master through bloodshed and ritual before taking the arcane power as your own. From there, the true test awaits.
Over Fifty New Units:
Charging into bloodthirsty combat alongside their Champions is diverse host of battlefield units, including the Warshrine of Chaos which bestows terrible gifts upon those who make the appropriate sacrifice, Chaos Knights who ride as a wall of blades and spiked armor to crash through the enemy ranks in an explosion of torn flesh, and the Chosen, an ironclad group of elite slaughterers who form the inner circle of their lord’s warband.
Immortal Empires Beta:
The Immortal Empires Beta is a new grand-scale campaign mode for Total War: WARHAMMER III, free to owners of all three Total War: WARHAMMER titles. It combines the Legendary Lords, gameplay mechanics, war units and much more from across the trilogy into one colossal mode spread across the vast Warhammer world. It is the most complete and definitive Warhammer strategy experience ever conceived.
“Immortal Empires represents the world-encompassing vision we’ve been aiming towards since we first partnered with Games Workshop, and it’s great to see that become a reality”. Said DLC Director, Richard Aldridge. “It’s the most ambitious game mode we’ve ever worked on and will usher in years of post-release content for Total War: WARHAMMER III”.
Wage War With Up To 86 Legendary Lords:
Legendary Lords are (in)famous and powerful characters from the Warhammer world who lead your armies on their immortal conquest. Each has a unique playstyle, gameplay mechanics, and hail from one of the 23 wildly distinct races, from noble High Elves, ingenious Dwarfs, and the imperious dragons of Grand Cathy to the undead pirates of the Vampire Coast, the mysterious Lizardmen, and the apocalyptic hordes of Chaos.
Conquer the Vast Warhammer World:
Immortal Empires represents the most detailed reimagining of the iconic Warhammer Fantasy Battles World. Encompassing the length and breadth of its breathtaking fantasy landscape, players will conquer a swathe of biomes from the lush but deadly jungles of Lustria and the inhospitable deserts of the Southlands to the impassable mountains of Naggaroth and the corrupted Chaos Wastes.
Experience New Gameplay Features:
Immortal Empires offers the classic sandbox Total War experience and has several new features and quality of life improvements, including; Be’Lakor as a playable Legendary Lord, an all-new ‘Sea Lanes’ mechanic to help circumnavigate the map, updated mechanics and playstyles for factions introduced in WARHAMMER I & II, alongside fresh lore-inspired victory conditions for the campaign, new end-game scenarios, and much more.
Blood For the Blood God III:
ALSO releasing today is Blood for the Blood God III. This gory effects-pack brings several mature-rated animations to Total War: WARHAMMER III such as blood spurts, limb and head dismemberment, blood-drenched UI elements, global campaign events that generate greater carnage in battle, and much more. It will be free to owners of Blood for the Blood God I or II.
