In a recent interview, Creative Assembly’s principal writer and narrative designer Andy Hall revealed that players should expect nwe Legendary Heroes and Legendary Lords for Total War: Warhammer 3. Speaking with The Rookery, Hall said that the studio plans to continue its trend of bringing in characters from the Warhammer franchise—including from books like the Felix and Gotrek series.
“We have done some Legendary Heroes now and they proved quite popular, so we will certainly continue with that category,” said Hall. “With Legendary Lords they’re your avatar in this world, they’re meant to be you’re roleplaying as them, so it makes sense to try and bring as many of those Warhammer celebrities into that role as possible. Even if, like Deathmaster Snikch, they’re typically not generals, they’re loners. But again, we’re following in the footsteps of the tabletop. They do that as well.”
While Hall didn’t reveal any specifics about what we can expect from future DLC releases for Total War: Warhammer 3, he has stated that additions to Cathay and Kislev would be a “fair assumption to make”. So far, neither of the factions have seen any additions made to their roster, with the DLC so far focusing more on the Chaos factions, as well as Immortal Empires. Hall also revealed that new playable races aren’t part of the current roadmap Creative Assembly is working with for Total War: Warhammer 3.
