Xbox Game Pass, one of the biggest reasons to purchase an Xbox, has another new game coming under its belt on day one. Xbox has done things like this before, with the recently-released Forza Horizon 5 or Psychonauts 2. And today’s topic is another such case.
Total War: Warhammer III is releasing on February 17th, 2022, but you can play the game on the titular Game Pass without paying a dollar more than its subscription price. Let’s talk about Warhammer III and what the game plays like.
Total War: Warhammer III Lands On Game Pass
Total War: Warhammer III follows the player as they command their growing army in real-time strategy battles on a massive scale. This would be the third entry in this series, and the other two are widely considered very good RTS games.
The game touts itself to be a real-time strategy game with six factions to play as, nine unique legendary lords to obtain, and “endless replayability”. Given that real-time strategy can change on the fly, there might be more replayability than one would think. You can watch the original Twitter announcement right here.
