What you need to know

  • Total War: Warhammer 3 first launched on Feb. 17, 2022.
  • Update 1.2 is now available, adding several bug fixes to the game, including improving AI behavior.
  • This update also adds the first free DLC units with new Regiments of Renown.

Total War: Warhammer 3 is an ongoing game, and developer Creative Assembly just dropped a massive patch for the game that also adds some free DLC.

The developer detailed Update 1.2 on Tuesday, sharing a long, long list of bug fixes for Total War: Warhammer 3, including unit responsiveness, having mounts unlock automatically for characters without spending points, technology improvements, and more.

As previously shared, this update is also adding in the first Regiments of Renown as free DLC for the game. Instead of adding all the units for a particular faction, the developers are instead opting to add one unit at a time for every faction, growing the forces on the map equally. Here's a list of the Regiments of Renown added in Update 1.2:

  • The Dune Dragons - Celestial Dragon Guard - Grand Cathay
  • Hellforged Host - Exalted Bloodletters - Khorne
  • Dazh's Hearth-Blades - Hearth-Guard - Kislev
  • Festering Stooges - Exalted Plaguebearers - Nurgle
  • Powder Guts - Maneaters (Ogre Pistols) - Ogre Kingdoms
  • Bringers of Beguilement - Exalted Daemonettes - Slaanesh
  • Blazing Squealers - Exalted Pink Horrors - Tzeentch

Creative Assembly recently shared a roadmap for Total War: Warhammer 3 through the rest of 2022, giving details on when players can roughly expect different patches and features to arrive. This means that the list of factions in Total War: Warhammer 3 will grow, it's just going to take longer than for past games in the franchise.

Update 1.2 is available now on Steam, the Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store, so you're good to go regardless of where you're playing your PC games.
