Total Warhammer 3’s next patch will slow the Souls race

At the heart of Total War: Warhammer 3 is an extremely relatable struggle to murder four members of the monarchy, claim their souls, and cash them in so you can meet a really big bear. I would like to meet a big bear. I’m willing to do a lot to meet a really big bear. But many players have felt that this ‘Souls race’ forces the game into an unpleasant and uninteresting shape. Thankfully, the devs have plans for the next patch which they say should “make the Souls race less urgent”. Read more

Total Warhammer 3 is out now, but performance is a problem

Almost six years after the historical strategy action of Total War crashed into Games Workshop’s wacky fantasy world of Warhammer, the trilogy wraps up today with Total War: Warhammer 3. Oh I’m sure expansions will follow, and the game-joining Mortal Empires campaign is still to come, but Total Warhammer 3 is here now. Sadly, the launch is somewhat blighted by many players suffering serious performance problems. Read more

Total War: Warhammer 3 review: a heavyweight RTS with transformative changes to multiplayer

Total War: Warhammer 3 is an extremely hard game to review in isolation. It’s utterly massive in itself, with eight hulking single player campaigns at launch, not to mention a greatly expanded range of multiplayer and PvE skirmish options. But that’s just the start of it. For indeed, just like beloved Warhammer villain Ebeneezer Scrooge, any attempt to form an opinion on this game has to contend not just with the present, but with the bedevilments of its past and future to boot. While it is very much a game you can buy and enjoy on its lonesome, TWW3 is…

Total War: Warhammer 3’s campaign map looks prettier than ever

I don’t know my Warhammer from my Warlathe, Warchisel or Warphillipsheadscrewdriver. You, you might watch the reveal trailer for Total War: Warhammer III‘s campaign map and think, “Gosh, what a beautiful rendering of the home of Katarin Bokha, the ice queen of Kislev.” Me, I’m just enjoying it for the pretty textures and fog effects.

Total War: Warhammer 3 reveals Slaneesh’s horny, hedonistic army

While some Chaos gods have perfectly reasonable cover stories for their interests in pursuits like decay and mutation or murder and mutilation (I mean, one can hardly get skulls for one’s skull throne at Ikea), Slaneesh is unashamedly ‘horny on main’ (as middle-aged people like me believe young people might still say, possibly?). This much is clear in a new trailer which introduces the Slaneesh of Total War: Warhammer 3, clad in hot pinks and meat lingerie. Read more

Here’s what’s coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC at launch next year

Oh Xbox Game Pass, that subscription service I constantly forget that I have. It’s always nice to be pleasantly surprised by new games I didn’t expect to play (or had no plans to buy outright). Microsoft have detailed a bunch more games I’ll likely be surprised by coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC when they launch over the next year or so – from epic space RPG Starfield, to Arkane’s vampire hunting adventure Redfall. It looks like they’re revealing more later this week too. Read more

Total War: Warhammer 3’s new trailer shows off Kislev’s big, awesome bears

Kislev and Khorne are going head to head in the newest Total War: Warhammer 3 trailer that just landed today. The next part of Creative Assembly’s series is giving some serious love to the snowy folks of fantasy Russia with cavalry bears, magical bears, and other pretty cool looking icy units. You can spot the lot in the new cinematic trailer right here ahead of the gameplay reveal that’s still scheduled for tomorrow. Read more
