'Total War: Warhammer III' Reveals the World of Slaanesh - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 8, 2021 @ 4:24 p.m. PST

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?


The wait is over... Indulgence, agony and excess — let yourself go with the Dark Prince.

Slaanesh is the youngest of the Chaos Gods and is dedicated to the pursuit of excess, gratification, hedonism, pain and perfection at the expense of any other soul.

Slaanesh Legendary Lord – N'Kari

N'Kari, the Arch-Temptor, scours the immortal and mortal realms to experience the ultimate sensation and taste ecstasy in its purest form.

On the battlefield, he is an extremely fast and vicious Exalted Daemon that excels at hunting isolated enemy characters and units. His unique passive ability, Harvester of Souls, heals him whenever an enemy unit has been fully killed nearby, whilst his Willing Prey ability significantly reduces enemy melee defence and attack, leaving them vulnerable to a quick and agonising death.

Slaanesh Playstyle

Using their unparalleled speed and armour-piercing capabilities, Slaaneshi Daemons look to sow discontent among the enemy ranks through hit and run tactics, before isolating units and dealing a quick final blow. Their armies gain battle currency by killing routing units which be used on three abilities which accentuate their playstyle.

On the campaign map, factions of Slaanesh strive to spread the Dark Prince's hedonistic message at every turn. Their mechanics include:

  • Gifts of Slaanesh: Lords and Heroes of Slaanesh can impart gifts on enemy characters by defeating them in battle or through hero actions, thus imposing a bundle of negative effects on the unit.
  • Seduction: By increasing seductive influence, the forces of Slaanesh can forcibly vassalise a target faction.
  • Devotees: Slaaneshi armies can capture Devotees from battles, from Chaos cults, and though other acts. Devotees are used for creating cults, the raising of Disciple Armies, and to create vassals.

Slaanesh Roster

An embodiment of their patron god, the daemons of Slaanesh are vicious, gracious and beguiling. Commanding their sinister armies are the imperious Keepers of Secrets and the Herald of Slaanesh, whilst the core of their army is formed around cunning and deadly units such as Daemonettes and Fiends, leaving the agile Heartseekers and Hellstriders to provide lightning-quick cavalry support.
