Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires: Release Date and Time

The release date and time for Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires has been set for Tuesday, August 23, at 7am PDT / 10am EDT / 3pm BST.

The full Warhammer 3 Immortal Empires map was revealed in a developer blog on June 21, 2022. It stretches from Lustria in the west, to the eastern edge of Cathay on the coast, and from the Chaos Wastes north to the Old World, the Badlands, and then to the Chaos Wastes in the south.

For those who haven’t heard much about it but are waiting for the perfect opportunity to return to Warhammer 3, the new Immortal Empires game mode will tick all the boxes.

The Immortal Empires mode will initially release in a ‘beta’ state, and will remain in that state until Creative Assembly feel it’s finished.

“Immortal Empires isn’t just a “port” of content from one game to another; it’s a mountain of phenomenally change-sensitive, technical work,” the studio explains. “… We want to be realistic: it won’t be the “final,” finished product on day one—just as Mortal Empires wasn’t at its launch.”

And here are some of the new features confirmed for Immortal Empires when it arrives in Warhammer 3 on August 23:

  • Be’Lakor is now a Legendary Lord with his own faction.
  • Access all 86 Legendary Lords from all three Total War: WARHAMMER titles.
  • Dedicated factions for a number of the older Legendary Lords, including: Grombrindal, Helman Ghorst, and Volkmar the Grim.
  • Improved personal faction mechanics for a selection of the older Legendary Lords (such as Volkmar the Grim).
  • New starting locations for 29 of the older Legendary Lords.
  • New dynamic end-game scenarios: randomised mid- to late-game challenges we’re introducing to challenge the late-game steamroll—where the player is so powerful that there’s little-to-no challenge left and less of a reason to complete the campaign.
  • A new ‘Sea Lanes’ feature, which allow you to move armies between distant lands and continents—from one side of the map to the other—without leapfrogging them all the way across the map.
