SEGA and Creative Assembly recently announced Forge of the Chaos Dwarfs, the next campaign pack for Total War: Warhammer 3.
This new campaign pack introduces new Legendary Lords, as well as new units, campaign mechanics, and more.
To give you a better idea of what to expect, you can check out the reveal trailer for the campaign pack here:
To start, here are the three Legendary Lords that players will be able to command:
- Astragoth Ironhand, High Priest of Hashut, is the most potent Chaos Dwarf Sorcerer–Prophet. However, his body has begun to petrify, confining him to near-living entombment within a powerful mech-suit.
- Drazhoath the Ashen, Sorcerer Prophet of Hashut, is the Lord of the Black Fortress and commander of the fell Legion of Azgorh. Exiled by Astragoth, Drazhoath’s mastery of magic and engineering has only grown stronger, as has his thirst for revenge.
- Zhatan the Black is the commander of the Tower of Zharr. His unmatched battle prowess has left the hell forges struggling to keep up with his insatiable demand for weapons and munitions.
Meanwhile, the Chaos Dwarfs features lots of powerful units such as the Infernal Guard and Bull Centaurs to the daemon-infused monsters such as K’daai Fireborn and even vicious war machines like Magma Cannons and Skullcrackers.
To maximize the power of the Chaos Dwarfs, players will need to take advantage of these four mechanics:
- The Hell Forge allows the infernal Chaos Dwarf legions to grow mightier by developing special schematics forged in fire, each of which grants hellish battle bonuses.
- The Tower of Zharr sees the Chaos Dwarfs (un)diplomatically vie for ownership of special Seats within this mighty council, granting unique faction rewards upon promotion.
- Convoys allow the trading of war tools in return for a variety of resources, whilst engaging in battles and exchanging labourers along the way, ensuring the rewards keep flowing.
- The Economy requires a multi-layered approach to the subjugation and management of labourers to keep the forges fuelled, construct advanced buildings, and expand the empire.
Total War: Warhammer 3 Forge Of The Chaos Dwarfs will be released on April 13, 2023. Pre-orders for the campaign pack are available now with 10% off its full price. For more info, visit the Total War blog.
