Set for release this year, Sega says Warhammer 3 will feature a larger scale than previous games, as players explore the Lands of the East to the Realms of Chaos.
Players will embark on a new campaign and be tasked with saving or exploiting the power of a dying god. “Each race offers a unique journey through the nightmarish Chaos Realm, culminating in an endgame that will determine the fate of the world,” Sega said.
“Players will wage war with the most diverse array of legendary heroes, gargantuan monsters, flying creatures and magical powers that the series has ever seen,” it added.
The game will introduce new races from the World of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, including Kislev and Cathay, alongside the factions of Chaos – Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch.
“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 in a prepared statement.
“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.”
Games Workshop’s licensing boss, Jon Gilliard added: “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.
“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.”
