Creative Assembly live-stream reveals new details about Total War: Warhammer 315 Apr 2020 0
On the 26th of February Creative Assembly ran a live-stream which revealed a number of details about Total War: Warhammer 3. But a lot of people, including many Total War content creators, didn't even realise until a post on Reddit brought it to their attention.
Some of the details relate to planned implementations in the new game, and others are about the content we can still expect for Total War: Warhammer 2. Perhaps biggest of all, was the confirmation that siege battles, which have been a long-running community complaint, will be overhauled in the third game.
It was also confirmed that CA plans to bring all game one races up to competitive standards before game three. This on top of the confirmation that Grimgor, the Greenskin Legendary Lord, will be getting some love, means we are likely to see a Greenskin expansion pack arriving relatively soon.
This follows the predicted trend of revamping game one races - first it was Dwarfs, then Vampire Counts, then Empire, then Bretonnia. This means the last main game-one race left is the Greenskins, after which the only races still to receive changes will be the Wood Elves and Beastmen.
Among the other things revealed, CA all but confirmed we will eventually get a Boris Todbringer campaign in Middenland, and that they would love to do a Red Duke campaign in Bretonnia, meaning both free-to-play lords might finally become playable. CA are also currently undecided as to whether a dueling system, similar to that of Three Kingdoms, should be introduced in the third game.
And finally, we know for sure now that Thanquol, the most popular Skaven character, will not be appearing until game three, which gives us a good indication that Skaven will still have a lot content left to come.
