The long-anticipated Chaos Dwarves update is finally coming to Total War: Warhammer III. These short-tempered shorties will be joining the Total War: Warhammer III roster on April 13 as part of the Forge of The Chaos Dwarves expansion and update 3.0.

As we covered in our last article about the Forge of the Chao Dwarves expansion, this new DLC for Total War: Warhammer III will include three new Legendary Lords and a new Legendary Hero, an uncommon practice that the Total War team has announced will be in the new norm.

When they first announced the Forge of The Chaos Dwarves expansion, they gave us a teaser of one of these three Legendary Lords, Astragoth Ironhand, High Priest of Hashut. The teaser gave us a good look at Astragoth’s powers and unique campaign mechanics but didn’t showcase many of the unique Chaos Dwarf units.

Today, the Total War team showed off more of the expansion with a new gameplay showcase. This time, we get to the second of three Legendary Lords, Drazhoath the Ashen, Sorcerer Prophet of Hashut. Exiled to the Black Fortress long ago by Astragoth Ironhand, Drazhoath is the underdog of the Chaos Dwarves and starts on the opposite end of the map from his rival.

In the video, we get a sneak peak and Drazhoath and Chaos Dwarf campaign mechanics, as well as a look at the Chaos Dwarves in battle, showing off their unit roster.

Like the Dwarves, the Chaos Dwarf roster has strong infantry and hard-hitting firepower, complimented nicely by a combination of explosive magic, hellish monsters, and fiendish machinery their order-tide brethren lack.

You can pre-order Forge of the Chaos Dwarfs here and get all three Legendary Lords and the Chaos Dwarves on April 13. Pre-Ordering the DLC gives you 10% off the release day price.
