Total War: Warhammer III is set to plunge players into a cataclysmic conflict between ruinous daemonic powers and the sentinels of the mortal world.

In Total War: Warhammer III each choice you make will shape the reality-shattering conflict to come; from the mysterious Lands of the East to the daemon-infested Realms of Chaos. Experience strategy gaming on a scale yet unseen in this epic culmination to the Total War: WARHAMMER trilogy.

Featuring iconic new races from the World of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, including the video-game debut of Kislev and Cathay alongside the factions of ChaosKhorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch - 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.

Embarking on a new grand campaign, you will 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.

The coming conflict will engulf all. Will you conquer your daemons? Or command them?

Watch the wonderous war machine of Grand Cathay defend the fabled Great Bastion in the latest gameplay video for Total War: Warhammer III.

Kairos Fateweaver, Greater Daemon of the Chaos God Tzeentch, sends his unfathomable hordes forth, and the Storm Dragon must stand resolute in the defense of her father's empire.

The Great Bastion:

The Great Bastion is a symbol of everlasting defiance that has protected Grand Cathay from the wrath of the Chaos Gods for millennia. It is a titanic, nigh-impenetrable wall imbued with ancient magic that runs the length of the Celestial Dragon Empire's northern border with the hostile Chaos Wastes. Made up of three gatehouses, this unique settlement has access to its own building chains, commandments, and can be further bolstered by the great Wu Xing Compass which channels the Winds of Magic to its aid, allowing for greater campaign and battle bonuses.

When defending this great settlement, players can also make use of new features which allow for greater strategic interplay. This includes the ability to construct missile towers and barricades throughout the inner settlement, meaning players can devise devastating kill-corridors should the enemy breach the outer wall.


Of all the Chaos Gods, only Tzeentch has found any purchase within Grand Cathay itself, and the Changer of Ways has infiltrated aspects of Cathayan society where the more overt tactics of his brothers have failed. A being unmatched in magical capability and subterfuge, Tzeentch has bestowed this gift upon his minions to wreck-havoc upon the mortal world.

More information about Tzeentch and its Legendary Lord, Kairos Fatewever will be revealed soon.
