Update 1.3 for Total War: Warhammer III brings the Regiments of Renown unit pack as a free upgrade to all. Seven new units are available for you to unlock, with a heavy emphasis on cavalry.

There are a few units that stand out from the bunch. The Righteous Lances of Wei-Jin have an ability called Guardian that reduces the damage taken by lords and heroes that are close to this unit.

Another unit worth mentioning is the Barons of the Bog. This particular unit has two passive abilities. The first one is the Miasma of Rot which restores vigor to nearby allies. The second is The Wasting Sickness and this reduces the effectiveness of enemy weapons and the mass of units within its area of effect.

And lastly, the Eternal Entourage has the Obsessive Adoration passive. This ability empowers the melee attack and weapon strength of all friendly lords/heroes within its area of effect.

In addition to the new units, Land Battles are now available in the multiplayer ranked matchmaking pool. You now have a 50/50 chance of entering either a Land or Domination battle when queuing up for a match.

The following maps in Total War: Warhammer III are available in the Land Battle pool:

  • Death Pass
  • Arnheim
  • Battle for Itza
  • Broken Leg Gully
  • The Silver Spire
  • Blasted Lands
  • Darkland Crater
  • The Flats of Kislev – Kislev Troll Country
  • Floating Farms – Cathay Farmland
  • Wastes of Slaanesh – Slaanesh Wastelands

Here are the other notable changes and features implemented in Update 1.3:

    • Mantle of Immolation (Passive): Confers weakness to fire on all enemy units within the area of effect.

GAME
Stability and Performance

  • To prevent instances where ranged units hold their fire because a friendly unit is in their line of fire, overlapping units are now considered (by the game as) part of the same unit
  • Small or multiple-entity artillery and chariot units will no longer have collisions when killed
