Grand Cathay gets a big introduction for Total War: WARHAMMER III

By - | Views: 10,449

While it may be sad that Total War: WARHAMMER III has been delayed until 2022 so we've got a while to wait, we're at least getting more info on what will be included like the new Grand Cathay nation.

This is the first time for the franchise to see Grand Cathay realised in full. Originally mentioned in the second edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and a few random mentions, Creative Assembly teamed up with Games Workshop to pull together everything to create a full army and empire for Total War: WARHAMMER III including their own characters, units, magic, history, and much more.

Check out the trailer:

Not a single comment? Come on, people! I get that some of you don't like strategy games, but how is there not more hype here? This trailer is so awesome that I don't even mind the delay! The creativity on display is astounding, considering Creative Assembly had to make Cathay's units almost entirely from scratch! (There's almost no lore pertaining to units, let alone an army book.)

I know some of you want Feral to port other (ostensibly) more action-oriented games, but that doesn't make Total War games bad!

The Warhammer games are easily the best TW games since Shogun 2. If anyone would like to know more about them or the setting, I'd be glad to share. I'd love to coordinate some Linux-exclusive multiplayer

Love the total war games but just not feeling this one i played wh 1 & 2 and they were fun but was kind of hoping for a more modern history take or hell even making a good game of thrones rts ( the one that exsists is terrible)Also doesnt help when people first said warhammer 3 was coming i was thinking finally a tw warhammer 40k game but nah its warhammer 2 re skinned. Hope am wrong hope its a completely new game I ll pick it up when feral put it out as i kind of think its the last port we are getting frome them on linux.

I'm eagerly waiting for this!

Cathay is meant to be the greatest human empire in Total War fantasy! Basically like Human Elves. Will be interesting to see what comes out of this and the dynamics against chaos and other human realms on the other side of the world. Really looking forward to this!
