Total War: Warhammer 3 artwork for the new Chaos DLC lord Festus the Leechlord

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

[Update]: As expected, the next Champions of Chaos preview is all about Vilitch the Curseling and the freshly reforged Tzeentch warriors and chosen!

This August 23rd Total War: Warhammer 3 will receive its biggest influx of new content to date. You can expect to see the massive Immortal Empires combined campaign map, a rework of the long-forgotten Warriors of Chaos, numerous buffs to Total War: Warhammer 2 factions, as well as the Champions of Chaos DLC that brings with it four new playable Chaos factions.

Last time around Creative Assembly revealed what Slaanesh's champion Azazel is all about, and today it's time for Nurgle's favorite plague doctor Festus the Leechlord to get a moment in the spotlight. So if you're interested in what the Nurgle part of the Champions of Chaos DLC has to offer, you'll find what you seek in the preview below:

While the new units and mechanics are certainly going to be fun to mess around with, I'm actually far more excited about Creative Assembly finally giving lords the ability to manipulate previously hard-coded effects like the battle healing cap. It's one of those things that sounds small on paper yet can greatly affect how a faction plays, so I can only hope we'll see more of these tweaks in the future as well. For example, how cool would it be for lords like Helman Ghorst to allow garbage-tier units like zombies to break the army cap!

My little musings aside, you can learn more about Festus and what he brings to the table over at the Total War website. Enjoy, and I'll leave you with Azazel's preview just in case you haven't seen it yet:
