Total War: Warhammer III

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Total War: Warhammer III is a fitting capstone to the series, featuring new, inventive factions and clever additions that will delight fans of its universe.

Game Info

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?

Warhammer 3 is Creative Assembly’s most maximalist, chaotic, and arguably best game to date. But it’ll ask a lot of you in return.

8/10

Total War: Warhammer 3 has the most diverse and most fun ways to play with friends the series has ever seen, even if network issues can still be a bit troublesome.

9/10

If Total War Warhammer 3 is the beginning of the end for Creative Assembly’s fantasy series, then it’s going out on a high note. The game takes several steps forward in how the campaign works, how it builds toward climactic battles and then how those battles take place, and there’s plenty of quality of life improvements for the Total War series as a whole.
