The first major update for the turn-based strategy RPG Total War: Warhammer III is now available. Update 1.1 brings plenty of stability and performance fixes, resolves numerous gameplay bugs, and implements various improvements to make the game more worthwhile.

One of the biggest changes in Update 1.1 is the improved responsiveness of both melee and ranged units. For instance, infantry units will now react to orders and respond similarly to how they performed in Total War: Warhammer II.

The developers also want the game to be as stable as can be, so they included plenty of bug fixes in this patch. For example, the game no longer crashes when Alt-tabbing to another window. Furthermore, the severe performance hit when viewing steam visual effects during a custom battle has been resolved.

Two new maps are now available for the Domination game mode as well. These are the Arnheim and Battle for Itza.

  • Fixed an issue where vegetation would appear dark when adjusting the game’s graphics settings
  • Fixed an issue that would result in white flickering lines appearing around mountain models on the campaign map
  • Corrupted traits are now removed as the corrupted character spends time in a province with lower levels of that particular type of corruption
  • Fixed an issue where the Everlasting Gift [technology] would remove some of the effects of the Gift of Slaanesh [upgrade] rather than applying the correct bonuses
  • The Supply Lines values will now update properly when disbanding Lords
  • Fixed an issue where handing off control of a second Army joining a battle to the AI would prevent them from joining and prevent the battle from concluding

  • Reduced the effect of negative traits inflicted upon entering the Realms of Chaos by ~50%
  • Negative traits inflicted by the Realm of Chaos will now be removed when a Legendary Lord completes the survival battle within that realm
Domination (Gameplay)
