Creative Assembly has now shared the eagerly-awaited Total War: Warhammer 3 plan of action that details the changes as well as new content to be included in the epic strategy over the time following the official launch.

Total War: Warhammer 3’s plan of action was announced following the final installment of the trilogy, which was slower than previous entries. While some of the features, such as the map that combined Immortal Empires and blood DLC have taken longer to be released and are now available, we have the best idea of what’s to come to see in the coming years.

Total War: Warhammer 3 Roadmap

The first step in Total War: Warhammer III’s schedule is set for late in May 2022 when the patch 1.2 went live. It addresses a wide variety of problems that gamers have noticed since the the game’s launch.

This included AI re-building towers too fast as well as flying units being stuck while trying to the ground, and snow becoming too intense, as well as players becoming stuck in the Slaanesh’s realm.

The other features planned for Patch 1.2 was auto-resolve improvement that slowed the feature’s scale and changed it so that it is determined by the difficulty of the battle you choose to play. Reactivity improvements for units – that the game’s creator describes as an “long-term project” and was implemented in conjunction with the reworking of technology trees and a leaderboard reset and the introduction of brand new Regiments of Renown.

These more robust versions of current units were previously available as DLCs, but this won’t change, Warhammer III’s “first few updates” included no-cost Regiment of Renown units for all of the main races.

Q3 2022

The third quarter of 2022 proved to be a more busy period according to Total War: Warhammer III’s road map.

Update 1.3 promised improvements to Grand Cathay’s attack on formation which allowed the faction to be more effective in frontal confrontations.

The skills tree’s reworks went on and Tzeentch and Slaanesh received their refill rate changed.

The other goal was to boost the number of battles in the field, and more improvements to the unit’s combatant interaction and responsiveness were planned as well.

Perhaps the most memorable aspect of Total War: Warhammer III’s Q3-2022 timeline is patch 2.0 that was released when you could download the Immortal Empires integrated map, scheduled for launch in August was released in an integrated open beta that was accessible across every platform.

At the beginning, the designer was focusing in “balance, map, races, and other areas where we can continue to make adjustments based on player feedback.”

Update 2.0 included a desperately needed revamp for The Warriors of Chaos faction alongside the tense Blood to the Blood God DLC.

Q3 also marked the date that Warhammer III’s initial Lord Pack was set to be released, expanding the number of characters in Warhammer III by introducing four new characters.

It was announced that the Total War Assembly Kit was scheduled for release in Q3, release that would give the community the resources it required to keep creating amazing modifications. It was released alongside the patch 2.1, which was slightly delayed from the original Q4 release date.

Q4 2022

In 2022, as the year came to a close, additional features were scheduled for Total War: Warhammer III’s road map.

Update 2.2 brought a new version of the game’s features based upon player feedback given in the wake of the campaign Immortal Empires.

In the hopes of a date of October 18, the game included adjustments that will reduce the amount of settlement battles and a brand new crisis in the endgame and a rebalance of character experience as well as the introduction of new Regiments of Renown, and many more.

Patch 2.3 was the final patch that the game got in 2022. It was focused on fixing bugs and balance adjustments that did not appear the final patch 2.2 along with a few others, including the landmarks and settlements with 10 slots for Immortal Empires.

Total War: Warhammer III 2023 Roadmap

It took for a while before Total War: Warhammer III’s 2023 schedule was fully explicit, but updates and DLCs for the game’s grand strategy were nevertheless rolling through the course of the time.

Update 3.0 was released in the second quarter of 2023. It was released alongside with the Chaos Dwarfs DLC. It also brought into a variety of balance adjustments as well as other changes.

In a clip from the beginning of the month of February 2023 (see below for embedded video) Game director Rich Aldridge shared a few additional details on what we might be seeing in the grand game of strategy throughout the course of the calendar year.

The creator is “finishing up with [the] final touches on [the first piece of new content],” that we were told on April 20, 2023.

“Two more exciting experiences” was then scheduled to be broadcast in both winter and summer. The Aldriges didn’t give specific details on the “experiences.”

He further stated the “this is not a concrete plan,” noting it is possible that “things can change” in the course of development. It was true that plans did change as fans grew increasingly unhappy with the decision-making of the developer every month.

Q1 2023

Version 2.4 dropped out of the blue on February 16.

The game marked the launch of the Immortal Empires mode alongside a modification to its ownership structure and gave the owners of Warhammer III access to a “core experience” in spite of not owning the first two games of the series.

Q2 2023

It was released alongside it with the Forge of the Chaos Dwarfs DLC that saw Dawi-Zharr join the fight as a race that could be played.

The DLC was launched with three famous Lords as well as a hero who is legendary.

Additionally, every owner of Warhammer III wouldget access to two additional pieces of FreeLC. One brought legendary warrior Ulrika Magdova onto the rosters of Kislev as well as the Empire Another included The Mirror of Madness DLC, which was created in collaboration with Intel.

The creator had stated during the build-up to Chaos Dwarfs DLC’s release that it’s strategy, which includes three legendary lords as well as an all-new legendary hero “is the path we’ll be following for future releases.”

After releasing the update 3.0 note on patching, Creative Assembly also confirmed that the update 3.1 was due to be released “in a few weeks.” However, the company later reduced the launch date until May 25.

Q3 2023

This summer brought another DLC that was dubbed Shadows of Change, which actually changed the game even more however, not all to the good, thanks to having lesser content than the other DLCs however, it is more expensive.

Instead of focusing solely on one race, it made the most of stories from Tzeentch, Cathay, and Kislev and introduced three brand new Legendary heroes, a legendary hero who is new, as well as the introduction of new units.

The update was followed by 4.0 that promised race as well as AI updates as well as settlement battle enhancements.

Q4 2023

When 2023 came to an end, the update 4.1 acted as a minor interim patch. It brought improvements to bugs and game improvements. Siege battles have now been benefited by connected capture points as well as more barsicadade locations. Homing projectiles have been proven to be more secure, and several races have been given balance adjustments.

Total War: Warhammer III 2024 Roadmap

Like we said, the anger of the fans over the Creative Assembly’s decision-making process throughout the second quarter of 2023 resulted in Total War: Warhammer III’s 2024 plan undergoing a series of adjustments.

The Thrones of Decay DLC did not make it to its final 2023 launch date, and the publisher said it would update Shadows of Change with additional information early in the year.

The final months are uneasy in the beginning of the year however, we’ll be able to learn more when we move into the latter half of this year. Below, we’ve provided an in-depth description of the information that has been proven so far to be true for the final chapter of the trilogy.
