Total War: WARHAMMER III Announced

SEGA announces Total War: WARHAMMER III, a third installment in Creative Assembly's strategy series based on the Warhammer fantasy franchise. This will come to the Epic Games Store and Steam, and each store lists late 2021 as the release date. Word is the game will "plunge players into a cataclysmic conflict between ruinous daemonic powers and the sentinels of the mortal world." A "Conquer Your Daemons" Announce Trailer is a cinematic look with some background (daemon joke) on what to expect. Here's more:
In Total War: WARHAMMER III each choice you make will shape the reality-shattering conflict to come; from the mysterious Lands of the East to the daemon-infested Realms of Chaos. Experience strategy gaming on a scale yet unseen in this epic culmination to the Total War: WARHAMMER trilogy.

Featuring iconic new races from the World of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, including the video-game debut of Kislev and Cathay alongside the factions of Chaos – Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch - players will wage war with the most diverse array of legendary heroes, gargantuan monsters, flying creatures and magical powers that the series has ever seen.

"Our vision, from the start, was to create a series that felt like an incredible journey through this world we all loved.," said Game Director, Ian Roxburgh. "The enormous support of our players in ensuring the success of the first two instalments has pushed our ambition to new heights, and we can't wait for everyone to experience it."

"The craft, dedication and authenticity to the Warhammer world that Creative Assembly has poured into the celebrated Total War Warhammer franchise over the years has been a delight to us at Games Workshop and fans worldwide." said Jon Gillard, Global Head of Licensing. "Creating and developing the armies of Cathay and Kislev for this project has been a lot of fun for our designers and we're looking forward to seeing them take to the field in this huge third game in the series."

Embarking on a new grand campaign, you will be tasked with saving or exploiting the power of a dying god. Each race offers a unique journey through the nightmarish Chaos Realm, culminating in an endgame that will determine the fate of the world.

The coming conflict will engulf all. Will you conquer your daemons? Or command them?

Ahh thanks for that. I'd definitely like to check out some of the other factions perspectives. The Astartes are just too one dimensional for my tastes. Yeah, yeah honor and courage, we get it.

There are definitely lots of stories from the viewpoint of other human factions -- Imperial Guard, Inquisition, Adeptus Sororitas, at least one for the Heresy-era Adeptus Custodes. I think the Commissar Ciaphas Cain series is popular for people who want to take a break from grimdark, honor and genetically enhanced supersoldiers.

I might buy this, maybe? I did buy the second one (skipped the first one) but I never really got into it. Felt a bit underdeveloped and quite buggy, but I did play it for about 30-40hours, which is quite a bit for me lately. I heard good things about the expansions though, however I never got into them due to cost/time and just no real incentive to play.

I do like Total War games, Rome was probably my favorite. However I would kill for a Warhammer40k Total War game. No idea if or how it could be done, since it includes space/air combat, but maybe they could place it on an underworld of some kind or a hiveworld or something, so the fluff makes sense. WH40K Total War would totally own.
