SEGA Europe Ltd. and Creative Assembly are eager to announce the launch of Champions of Chaos and the Immortal Empires Beta for Total War: WARHAMMER III. Here are the Update 2.0 details, it’s huge.
Champions of Chaos:
Fit for a champion, this Lords Pack welcomes four new Warriors of Chaos Legendary Lords. So, instead of the usual two, each of whom is aligned with one of the four ruinous Chaos Gods. Take on campaigns of ruin with new gameplay mechanics. While wreaking havoc with over fifty new battlefield units. With a brand new story due to see you rise from pawn to power.
Four New Warriors of Chaos Legendary Lords:
The Champions of Chaos have risen through the ranks in Update 2.0. All due to their infamous deeds to become the favoured of the four Dark Gods. They are; Valkia the Bloody, the deadly but daemonic consort of Khorne. Festus the Leechlord, the deranged plague doctor of Nurgle. Azazel, Prince of Damnation, the ecstatic heir of Slaanesh. Vilitch the Curseling, the conjoined sorcerer twin of Tzeentch.
A New Campaign Experience:
In the ancient arena city of Zanbaijin, the servants of the Chaos gods have clashed for millennia. While the souls of those who fall in battle are sealed within the Altar of Battle. As a Champion of Chaos, you must earn the gaze of your master through bloodshed and ritual. Doing so before taking the arcane power as your own. From there, the true test awaits.

Over Fifty New Units:
Charging into bloodthirsty combat alongside their Champions is a diverse host of battlefield units. Including the Warshrine of Chaos due to bestow terrible gifts upon those who make the appropriate sacrifice. Chaos Knights ride as a wall of blades and spiked armor to crash through the enemy ranks. Soing so in an explosion of torn flesh, and the Chosen. An ironclad group of elite destroyers who form the inner circle of their lord’s warband.
Immortal Empires Beta:
The Immortal Empires Beta is a new grand-scale campaign mode for Total War: WARHAMMER III. Also free to owners of all three Total War: WARHAMMER titles, but only on Windows PC.

Wage War With Up To 86 Legendary Lords:
Legendary Lords are (in)famous and powerful characters from the Warhammer world. Since they lead your armies on their immortal conquest. Each has a unique playstyle and gameplay mechanics.

All the way to the undead pirates of the Vampire Coast. Plus the mysterious Lizardmen and the apocalyptic hordes of Chaos.
Conquer the Vast Warhammer World:
Immortal Empires holds the most detailed reimagining of the iconic Warhammer Fantasy Battles World. Including the length and breadth of its breathtaking fantasy landscape. So that players will conquer a swathe of biomes from the lush. But deadly jungles of Lustria and the barren deserts of the Southlands. Due to the impassable mountains of Naggaroth and the corrupted Chaos Wastes.

Immortal Empires offers the classic sandbox Total War experience. Update 2.0 has several new features and quality of life improvements. Including; Be’Lakor as a playable Legendary Lord.

Along with fresh lore-inspired victory conditions for the campaign. Including new end-game scenarios, and much more.

Due to level up Total War: WARHAMMER III with blood spurts, limb, and head dismemberment. Including blood drenched UI elements and global campaign events that generate greater carnage in battle.
