Total War: Warhammer 3 artwork for Khorne's daemon legions

[Update #2]: Immortal Empires has now been unleashed alongside Total War: Warhammer 3's biggest update ever!

[Update]: The final Immortal Empires preview showcases everything coming with Total War: Warhammer 3's biggest update yet.

For reasons that I will probably never understand, Total War: Warhammer 3 launched without any sort of blood and gore effects. Because of this you can end up in bizarre situations where hordes of bloodletters, servants of the blood god, are massacring their foes while standing in gigantic pools of blood overlooking a blood fountain, without actually spilling even a tiny bit of blood themselves - that would apparently be too much!

Thankfully, this charade will soon be over as Total War: Warhammer 3's August 23rd update will bring with it the long, long awaited Blood for the Blood God pack. Here's what it'll look like in action:

Unfortunately, it's not all good news. Rather than be a part of a free update since it's clearly meant to be in the base game, the Blood for the Blood God pack will set you back €3. On the positive side, at least the DLC carries over across the entire series, so if you've already bought it for Total War: Warhammer 1 or 2, you're all set to cover your enemies in copious amounts of jam as soon as the update goes live for Total War: Warhammer 3.

Once that happens, I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you might be interested to hear that Creative Assembly has released a lengthy preview of the upcoming Immortal Empires combined campaign map. Needless to say, it's quite a chunky one!
