Forums - PC Discussion - Total War: Warhammer III announced!

I'm still mad Sega adds Denuvo to all their PC releases. I would get it otherwise, but I won't install malware on my PC.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Excited for this but I just started playing the Dawn of War Apocolypes mod and it really makes me want a Total Warhammer 40k game.

Eh. Not the one I wanted a sequel for. I didn’t play the first two, I’m not interested in the fantasy setting; tried the Third Age mod for Medieval II once, but was done with it after like ten minutes. Obviously I know the mod was fan made and thus pretty rough around the edges while an actual game by the real developers would not be, a fantasy setting just doesn’t work for me in a game like this. I’d much rather have the historical setting. Besides, as far as fantasy goes I’m also not exactly invested in Warhammer (I barely know it exists and is a thing).

As far as #3s go I’d rather have had Medieval III, or Rome III even if Rome II doesn’t feel old yet. I’d also like an Empire II, or a new era altogether.

Well Total War Warhammer was announced as a trilogy before the first game even released, so it was inevitable.

100% agree on Medieval 3 though. That needs to happen! Hopefully that will be the next main game (I expect they'll be another saga between Warhammer 3 and the next big one).

This was a planned trilogy over a small amount of years. They are more like major expansions than brand new games. A Rome or Medieval 3 would be a much larger leap over their predecessors than Warhammer 3 will be to Warhammer 2 and than 2 was to 1 in terms of features and graphics.

I didn't think I'd be into the setting either when 1 came out, but boy was I wrong. 2 and the Mortal Empire campaign was truly epic. I am very excited for this game. Going back to just humans vs. human TW games has kind of been ruined for me haha. That being said, Medieval 3 is probably in my top 5 most wanted games for any company.

Agree with this! I knew next to nothing about Warhammer when game #1 came out. Didn't actually even buy game 1 until #2 had already released and it was on sale. But it was awesome, especially the #2 Mortal Empires as you said.

Yeah, lack of diversity is going to be a big problem with other Total Wars now. Sure say England and France are slightly different, but they're both human and share like 70%+ of their units... meh.
