The wait is almost over as Total War: Warhammer III is finally coming this Thursday, February 17. The game serves as the conclusion to the Warhammer trilogy that started back in 2016.

In the game, the portal to the Realm of Chaos has been opened. From this maelstrom arrives the four Ruinous Powers - Khorne, Nurgle, Tzeentch, and Slaanesh – to spread darkness and despair. As the warriors of Kislev and the empire of Grand Cathay stand at the threshold, a vengeful Daemon Prince promises to destroy those who have corrupted him.

Features of the game include:

  • Players can choose from seven unique races and have hundreds of units under their command.
  • Raise an army and dominate epic real-time battles across a world that has breathtaking scale and spectacle.
  • ​Experience a captivating narrative that takes players to the mind-bending Realm of Chaos and back again.
  • Forge an empire in a strategy sandbox that ensures no two campaigns are ever the same.
  • ​Play as 10 Legendary Lords.
  • Customize the Daemon Prince to fit your own unique design. With a wide range of body parts and powers, expect a lot of possible combinations.
  • ​Multiplayer is now bigger than ever. Enjoy a large eight-player Realm of Chaos multiplayer campaign.
