Development studio Creative Assembly shared a look at the map of Immortal Empires on Tuesday, giving players a first look at how the world of Total War: Warhammer 3 will grow. You can take a look at the map below (tap or click the upper-right corner of the image to enlarge it).

To say the Immortal Empires map is massive would be an understatement, as it's the  largest Total War map ever created, being almost twice the size of Mortal Empires in Total War: Warhammer 2. Right now, there are 554 settlements, with 278 starting factions and 86 Legendary Lords. That number is sure to change, especially as the list of factions in Total War: Warhammer 3 grows with future DLC. 

One of the many new features being introduced to Immortal Empires is Sea Lanes. Due to the sheer size of the game map, Sea Lanes provide a way for players to go from one side of the map to another without marching over land and crossing the middle of the ocean near Ulthuan. You can see the Sea Lanes below:

Total War: Warhammer 3's Immortal Empires mode is currently slated to launch in beta form in August 2022, allowing the developers to take feedback and adjusting things as needed while still letting players roam free with factions and area from all three games coming together.


Total War: Warhammer 3

Defeat Daemons or lead them in conquest with Total War: Warhammer 3. It's the culmination of Creative Assembly's massive trilogy, but it's only the beginning with Immortal Empires also on the way.
