Total War: WARHAMMER III Announced, Bringing Epic Trilogy To A Close

Total War: WARHAMMER III has been announced, culminating the trilogy's epic story with this latest installment. The partnership with Creative Assembly and Games Workshop will "plunge players into a cataclysmic conflict between ruinous daemonic powers and the sentinels of the mortal world."

Total War: WARHAMMER III will feature new races from World of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, including Kislev and Cathay. Coupled with the factions of Chaos, Creative Assembly promises the "most diverse array of legendary heroes, gargantuan monsters, flying creatures and magical powers the series has ever seen."

Via the press release:

"Our vision, from the start, was to create a series that felt like an incredible journey through this world we all loved.," said Game Director, Ian Roxburgh. "The enormous support of our players in ensuring the success of the first two instalments has pushed our ambition to new heights, and we can't wait for everyone to experience it."

"The craft, dedication and authenticity to the Warhammer world that Creative Assembly has poured into the celebrated Total War Warhammer franchise over the years has been a delight to us at Games Workshop and fans worldwide." said Jon Gillard, Global Head of Licensing. "Creating and developing the armies of Cathay and Kislev for this project has been a lot of fun for our designers and we're looking forward to seeing them take to the field in this huge third game in the series."

Total War: WARHAMMER III will see players take part in a new grand campaign, where they'll set out to save - or exploit - the power of a dying god. Total War put together a reveal trailer, setting the stage for this third installment in the trilogy, which you can check out in the embed above. Total War: WARHAMMER III is slated for a late 2021 release, so there is a bit of time to catch up with the previous entries in the series if you still need to do so. Creative Assembly has also seemingly worked with a few YouTubers to break down the trailer and announcements, such as a thirty-minute long breakdown by PartyElite and another via Turin.
