We finally get a look at the campaign map.  Looks like they might have toned down the color riot a bit this time around, which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. 







(Incidentally, the narrator for the Warhammer videos has always bothered the shit out of me.  I realize he's only doing as instructed/requested, but CA is trying to way too hard IMO.)

I'm not sure the Ogres should have won this battle, but it was admittedly fun to watch.  I also may have to withdraw my earlier comments about this narrator; he was pretty amusing here.  :hehe:

Update 1.1.0 has dropped: 


https://www.totalwar.com/blog/tw-warhammer3-update110/






It'll be interesting to follow the game's long-term development, especially when juxtaposed against the fact that currently, WH3 has only a "Mixed" 60% review score on Steam.  Granted that Steam reviews should probably (and tend to) be taken with a grain of salt, it's still somewhat notable that in contrast/comparison, both the first two Warhammer games scored much better at release.

Random acts of genius and other inspirations of applied violence.

Heh.  Yeah, that's yet another reason I haven't picked up the game:  I don't have room for it! 


The SSD on my new computer is wonderfully fast, but it's also only 500 GB.  So I've had to be very choosy about which games to install.  Even with that, the darn thing is still nearly full.  :-[

^I want to become more discerning in what I install so I can purchase less.

BWAHAHA

Just get a smaller hard drive.  You'll quickly discover just how discerning you really are.  ;D

Well you all know me. I can barely spell dissccerning. Or whatever.

So this patch was NOT the one to update Mortal Empires...was it? I haven't read the notes.

Correct.  The Immortal Empires campaign won't be available for (probably) months yet.

Hopefully CA outlines in the roadmap when Immortal Empires is coming.  But even the roadmap's drop isn't known at this point, other than sometime "after 1.1 is out" (so anytime between now and Labor Day ::) ).

I'm trying to figure out why CA is posting this *now*, as opposed to two months ago.  Kind of a head-scratcher.  ??? 







Also, still no roadmap.  I really do wonder what's going on with their media & community-relations folks (and just their management overall) these days.

Haven’t looked at the numbers but I get the feeling this hasn’t been as spectacular as the first and second - whether that’s because like myself after patches there was nothing wrong that needed doing to 2 to warrant a new release yet or it’s just apathy for the licence

I loved one and two but can’t feel the same enthusiasm for 3 - whether that’s dlc bloat and I feel I haven’t finished 2 yet I dont know
