Total War: Warhammer III is the third installment in the strategic Total War series, which takes players into a world straight out of the tabletop battle game Warhammer Fantasy Battle. The game is the culmination of a trilogy developed by Creative Assembly studio and published by SEGA.
In the game we return to the dark universe of Warhammer. After visiting the Old World and the lands to the west of it, the latest installment of the sub-series takes us to the border of dimensions, where the warriors of Kislev and the empire of Great Cathay guard the way to the kingdom ruled by the four gods of Chaos. The tension in this troubled region is looking to be utilised by an ancient power seeking to gain ultimate power. However, to do so, this entity will have to find a champion among the inhabitants of the mortal world.
The entire Total War: Warhammer trilogy is based on Warhammer Fantasy Battle (in this case mainly the 8th edition of the game). Therefore, it does not include the themes and threads introduced in Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.
Like the two previous installments, Total War: Warhammer III uses the well-proven gameplay scheme of the Total War series. So it is a strategy game played on two planes. We command the entire faction in turns, moving armies, taking care of the economy and developing technology. But when we enter into battle, confrontations involving thousands of units take place in real time.
Compared to the two previous installments in the Total War: Warhammer series, the changes include new factions, such as the Kislev and Cathay armies, which are making their video game debuts. The developers have also made sure that the scale of battles exceeds anything we have seen in previous games in the sub-cycle.
