Daemons are coming! New Total War: WARHAMMER III Trailer & Warhammer II DLC
We got a new look at the upcoming WARHAMMER III game and it looks brutal!
Total War: WARHAMMER III
Releasing late in 2021, Total War: WARHAMMER III is going to turn the heat up on the franchise as Skarbrand the Exiled and the Daemons of Khorne will be joining the battle against the Kislev and more.
You'll be able to fight against or take control of the Krone army, and Creative Assembly is already hyping up the Legendary Lord by calling Skarbrand the Exiled the "most powerful melee fighter to ever take to the battlefields of Total War: Warhammer" in the press release.
After being banished by the Blood God he served and expelled from the Chaos Realm, Skarbrand the Exiled is in an indefatigable rage and he'll use this on the battlefield with his 'Roar of Eternal Anger' ability allowing him to unleash a devastating fire attack, whilst his twin axes increase in damage every time he kills someone. All in all, this makes him a killing machine that enemies won't want to get in the way of, but they may not be able to help it as a passive ability he possesses provokes a rampage in weak-minded enemies, rendering them unable to evade his slaughter. Ouch!
In terms of Khorne's playstyle, the daemons are muscular, brutal, and love to spill blood at every opportunity by closing down their enemies at a fast pace.
As embodiments of their patron god, they hate the use of magic, instead preferring to utilize their formidable hand-to-hand combat skills on their enemies, with the longer these Mad Skull Warriors stay in the heat of battle, the more proficient they become.
Total War: WARHAMMER II - The Silence & The Fury DLC
Not just content with releasing WARHAMMER III content, Creative Assembly is also releasing new DLC for Total War: WARHAMMER II. The Silence & The Fury will be released on July 14, 2021 and introduces a new Legendary Lord for each of the Lizardmen and the Beastmen. Each will lead their own faction and feature new characters, units, unique gameplay mechanics, and narrative objectives.
From the trailer, the Beastmen's Legendary Lord looks like a huge threat as we see Taurox acting like some kind of deadly horror villain, whilst the Lizardmen's Legendary Lord, Oxyotl, searches to put an end to his reign of terror. However, don't worry as we know that Oxyotl is prepared for a fierce battle as the Chameleon Skink has a long history of fighting otherworldly forces of Chaos.
In the game, Oxyotl can instantly travel between his capitol, unique mission areas, and any Secret Sanctums that he's discovered, whilst Taurox gains Momentum and causes his army to replenish action points as his kill streak grows.
