Total War: Warhammer 3 map

There are few specific details on the campaign map, however game director Ian Roxburgh has confirmed that the Warhammer 3 campaign map will be “twice the size” as the Vortex campaign map from Total War: Warhammer II.

Further to that, Creative assembly plan to release a new ‘combined map’ DLC for owners of all three games, that will tie together the individual maps of every game into a large, grand strategy Warhammer experience.

Total War: Warhammer 3 units

At the time of writing, no official announcements have been made regarding the units in Total War: Warhammer III, however you can form an approximation by looking at army lists from the original Warhammer Fantasy tabletop game.

The only exception to this would be Cathay, as they never had a full list made for tabletop.
