[Update #2]: Total War: Warhammer 3's Update 4.0 will expand battle difficulty settings, add new landmarks and improve the tutorial.

[Update]: Total War: Warhammer 3's Update 3.1 has added Harald Hammerstorm, the original 'Warhammer', along with a rework of Bretonnia!

Well over a year has gone by since Total War: Warhammer 3 first launched, and despite it being the grand finale of a highly popular series it has received a remarkably small amount of updates and DLC so far, especially when compared to its predecessor that always seemed to have something waiting just around the corner. Thankfully, this content drought might soon be a thing of the past as Creative Assembly has now announced a whole suite of updates and DLC that will be arriving throughout 2023 and the first half of 2024!

First and foremost, the relatively small Update 3.1 will arrive in the final week of May with Chaos Dwarfs as an endgame scenario in Immortal Empires, seven new regiments of renown, a new legendary hero, as well as a whole assortment of balance changes and gameplay tweaks. Fairly simple stuff, but definitely welcome given how shaky the performance is right now.

At some point this summer Update 4.0 will bring with it a brand new DLC - Shadows of Change that will likely see the Monkey King face off against the Changeling, with seemingly even Kislev getting in on the action! You can also expect to see a new legendary hero added for free, a bunch of new achievements for Immortal Empires, sweeping changes to the base Tzeentch, Cathay, and Kislev factions, and most importantly of all, settlement battle and general AI improvements!

Update 5 - Thrones of Decay will be the final release of 2023. The paid DLC will bring with it new legendary lords for the Empire, Nurgle and Dwarf factions, along with a free legendary hero, The Nemesis Crown as a new legendary artifact similar to the Sword of Khaine, as well as faction reworks and improvements.

Once it finally arrives in spring 2024, Update 6.0 will bring with it another three-faction DLC, new legendary lords, new legendary heroes, and the usual assortment of tweaks and improvements. The details are obviously still few and far between as the update is nearly a year away, but I can only hope one of the three factions will be the Lizardmen as their campaign mechanics are in a desperate need of a rework.

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once each of these updates and expansions go live. Until then, have fun speculating on what's coming!
