After the recent reveal of Nurgle, SEGA and Creative Assembly has given us our first look at Slaanesh in Total War: Warhammer 3.
Check out the reveal of Slaanesh here:
Leading the armies of Slaanesh is N’Kari, the Arch-Temptor. On the battlefield, he is a fast and vicious Daemon that excels in hunting isolated character and units. Plus, N’Kari has the unique passive ability, Harvester of Souls which heals him whenever an enemy unit has been fully killed nearby, letting him prey upon even more enemies.
As for the armies of Slaanesh, these daemons are fast and have armour-piercing capabilities. Coupled with the fact that Slaaneshi Daemons gain battle currency by killing routing units, the armies of Slaanesh excel in hit and run tactics.
On the campaign map of Warhammer 3, factions of Slaanesh feature the following mechanics:
- Gifts of Slaanesh: Lords and Heroes of Slaanesh can impart gifts on enemy characters by defeating them in battle or through hero actions, thus imposing a bundle of negative effects on the unit.
- Seduction: By increasing seductive influence, the forces of Slaanesh can forcibly vassalise a target faction.
- Devotees: Slaaneshi armies can capture Devotees from battles, from Chaos cults, and though other acts. Devotees are used for creating cults, the raising of Disciple Armies, and to create vassals.
Total War: Warhammer 3 will release on February 17, 2022, and the game will be available on day one with Xbox Game Pass for PC.
