If Total War: Warhammer III was somehow not big enough already, Creative Assembly has pulled back the curtain on their plans for the rest of the year and beyond. It’s a lot, but I’ll do my best to give you the rundown.

Update 3.1 will precede Update 4.0, which will arrive this Summer. The interim update includes bug fixes, but also adds a legendary lord and some units of renown. Beyond that, it will also add the Chaos Dwarfs as an Immortal Empires endgame scenario. The full patch will come alongside the next round of paid DLC, Shadows of Change, which will focus on the Tzeentch, Cathay, and Kislev factions. They also plan on updating campaign AI and tweaking the settlement battles as part of their ongoing effort to find a happy medium.

Afterward, 4.1 will roll out the red carpet for update 5.0 in Winter 2023. Once again, the Total War: Warhammer III interim patch will focus on bug fixes. 5.0 will bring with it another paid DLC, Thrones of Decay, which focuses on Nurgle, the Empire, and the Dwarfs. Another big part of the patch is another legendary artifact, the Nemesis Crown.

After the 5.1 patch, another big update is planned for the Spring of 2024. It will be similar to the other big updates and will include a focus on three more races. Since none of the ones I favor (Dark Elves, Vampires, Beastmen) have been mentioned, I hope to see them in the last one. Unfortunately, that means I’ll be waiting a while.

If you haven’t played Total War: Warhammer III yet, just know that even the base game is absolutely massive. The fact that they rolled in Immortal Empires for any owner of the title (rather than requiring you to own the previous titles, as well) just highlights how huge it is. The organizational skills required to keep this all together at Creative Assembly must be incredible.

Total War: Warhammer III is currently available for PC.
