With Total War: Warhammer II (review here) and the subsequent Mortal Empires addition, it was clear that the result would be the most extensive Total War map ever made. This year, Total War: Warhammer III (review here) was finally released, and we''re now looking at Immortal Empires.
The most extensive map ever found in Total War, including the multi-content Empire: Immortal Empires will feature 278 starting factions, across a massive 554 regions, with 86 legendary leaders leading these factions. Be aware that the number of factions and regions is subject to beta testing.

Any Lord or Hero will be able to enter the Sea Lane markers, which allows them to set sail and reach their destination after being
The final outcome of Total War: Warhammer III is not until the end of Total War. More information is already being released on the official website and blog post by Creative Assembly. I know that I''m optimistic about this, and I''ll end up playing a lot of Immortal Empires when it''s available.
