Today Sega and Creative Assembly released another brand new trailer and details of the upcoming Warhammer strategy game Total War: Warhammer III.
While we knew that the game would let players choose between the four Chaos gods, another faction has been revealed, the undivided Daemons of Chaos.
The new legendary lord that comes with it is a Daemon Prince able to recruit units from all Chaos Faction and featuring extreme customizability thanks to the Daemonic Glory mechanic.
This allows players to unlock body parts that not only provide powers granted by the fickle gods of Chaos, but also change the looks of the Daemon Prince radically.
The Ascension mechanic lets the prince ultimately choose between the Chaos Gods or stick with the undivided route, remaining champion of all.
You can watch the trailer below and read our brand new hands-on preview.
If you’re unfamiliar with Total War: Warhammer III, which is coming for PC (including Game Pass) on Feb. 17, 2022.
If you want to see more, you can watch a video showing the campaign, a trailer focusing on Slaanesh, another gameplay trailer showing a battle between Slaanesh and Nurgle, another featuring the Ogre kingdoms vs. Khorne, one focusing on battle improvements, one showing more battle gameplay, and a video on siege mechanics.
Here’s how Sega describes the game officially:
“Far beyond the world and its petty wars there exists a dimension of pure, malevolent magic: The Realm of Chaos. It is a terrible place, incomprehensible to the mortal mind. It whispers promises of power, but to behold it is to be seduced by it. To relinquish your soul to it. To become it.
The four Ruinous Powers rule over this place, ever seeking to slip their bonds and engulf the world in a tide of daemonic corruption. Nurgle, the plague god; Slaanesh, the lord of excess; Tzeentch, the changer of ways; and Khorne, the god of blood and slaughter.
On the border between the worlds, two mighty kingdoms stand sentinel: the stern warriors of Kislev and the vast empire of Grand Cathay. But each is beset by its own trials, and now both have cause to cross the threshold and send their armies into the Realm of Chaos.
The world stands on a precipice. A single push will plunge it into cataclysm.
And there is one who schemes to achieve just that, an ancient figure who desires nothing less than to wield supreme power. But to succeed, he will need a champion…
The coming conflict will engulf all. Will you conquer your daemons? Or command them?”
