Creative Assembly revealed today that Total War: WARHAMMER III won’t hit shelves this year, but fans won’t have to wait long as the highly anticipated strategy title will be released on February 17, 2022 for PC (including a day one Game Pass for PC launch).
Preorders have been live on some of Sega’s approved partners for a while now, but it’s nice to get confirmation that the game will launch on Microsoft’s popular subscription service. The Game Pass version will work just like any other version of the game, letting customers access all the content available on the Standard Edition, and allowing for stuff like DLC purchases on the Microsoft Store (or even redeeming free DLC content).
Fans who choose to preorder the game or purchase it during its first week will get access to the Ogre Kingdoms DLC for free, while everyone else will have to spend extra cash on this faction.
Far beyond the world and its petty wars there exists a dimension of pure, malevolent magic: The Realm of Chaos. It is a terrible place, incomprehensible to the mortal mind. It whispers promises of power, but to behold it is to be seduced by it. To relinquish your soul to it. To become it.
The four Ruinous Powers rule over this place, ever seeking to slip their bonds and engulf the world in a tide of daemonic corruption. Nurgle, the plague god; Slaanesh, the lord of excess; Tzeentch, the changer of ways; and Khorne, the god of blood and slaughter.
On the border between the worlds, two mighty kingdoms stand sentinel: the stern warriors of Kislev and the vast empire of Grand Cathay. But each is beset by its own trials, and now both have cause to cross the threshold and send their armies into the Realm of Chaos.
The world stands on a precipice. A single push will plunge it into cataclysm.
And there is one who schemes to achieve just that, an ancient figure who desires nothing less than to wield supreme power. But to succeed, he will need a champion…
The coming conflict will engulf all. Will you conquer your daemons? Or command them?
