Today Total War: Warhammer III's grand campaign Immortal Empires leaves beta with update 2.4, but there's more fire under the ashes for those who know where to look.
The dedicated trailer, which you can see below, includes a juicy tease right at the end. We get to take a look at a mine deep underground where dwarfs are looking over greenskin slaves. Yet, these are obviously not your usual dwarfs.
They're the Chaos Dwarf, a race that has received very limited support and appeared in very limited fashion following Warhammer's 5th Edition, albeit they always existed in the lore. They're an evil race worshipping the chaos god of fire Hashut, the Bull God, Father of Darkness.
Despite their downfall in Games Workshop's graces (but they're certainly not the only good thing Games Workshop abandoned over the years), they have a very rich and interesting lore and a very distinctive Babylonian/Mesopotamian inspiration for their looks. It'll certainly be interesting to see how much of that will be preserved in Total War: Warhammer III when the inevitable DLC/Expansion comes out.
In the meanwhile, you can check out the trailer below, showing off the forces of order as they prepare (not without inevitable issues) to fight back against the forces of chaos. It's definitely epic, and the mention of a "Reckoning" makes me wonder if the developers slid in a small homage to the old Warhammer: Age of Reckoning.
One thing is for sure. The trailer is absolutely epic and acts as a perfect reminder of why classic Warhammer is the only fantasy Warhammer that counts. Personally, I'm very grateful to Creative Assembly for having kept it alive after Games Workshop abandoned it in favor of the game that shall not be named.
Total War: Warhammer III is currently available exclusively for PC.
