Total War: Warhammer 3’s Player Count Skyrockets Following Immortal Empire’s Release

Total War: Warhammer 3 saw a huge surge in its playerbase following the release of its long-awaited Immortal Empires expansion last week. Since its release, Warhammer 3’s daily peak player concurrency has skyrocketed from an average of 8,000 – 12,000 players over the past three months to over 100,000 players and hitting 119,116 at its peak during launch day.

The huge influx of players has catapulted the online strategy game to the 11th spot on Steam’s most-played games list just behind Rust. The fact that the game is currently being sold at 75% off on Steam as a bundle with the first two games might have also played a part in driving players to the game.

Immortal Empires combines all the maps and factions from previous Total War: Warhammer games into one massive mega-campaign. That includes a total of 278 different factions and 86 legendary lords to choose from. The expansion also adds Be’lakor as a playable lord complete with his own faction along with dedicated factions for several existing lords. Including Grombrindal, Helman Ghorst, Kholek Suneater, Sigvald the Magnificent, and Volkmar the Grim.

Sea Lanes have also been added to the game, which allows players to move their armies across the seas to distant lands as well as the new Ultimate Crisis Mode that throws random endgame apocalyptic events at players for an extra challenge. You can check out the huge new Immortal Empires campaign map in the official trailer below.
