For Warhammer fans, today is probably some kind of holiday. Not only will the Champions…
Warhammer 3 – Immortal Empires was not only able to inspire Fabiano: currently more than 100,000 players are playing the beta version of the large Total War expansion – which is a smooth tenfold increase over the past few months. But the number of players at the original launch of Total War: Warhammer 3 on February 17, 2022 could not (yet) be cracked.
If you’re interested in what exactly our Total War expert Fabiano thinks about his Immortal Empires beta test, then take a look at the following article. Small spoiler: The part obviously has a lot on the box even before its final release.
Total War has never been so good!
Warhammer 3: Immortal Empires Beta Testing
The player comeback for Total War: Warhammer 3
Total War: Warhammer 3 was originally released on February 17, 2022. The game itself turned out to be a significant improvement on its two predecessors in our test. However, the gaming experience was not spared from old problems and ailments that cloud the overall picture in our GameStar test.
Total War: Warhammer 3 was able to inspire up to 166,754 players at the same time in the weeks after the launch on Steam (via SteamDB). In direct comparison to Warhammer 2, the predecessor came a significant increase
only to a maximum of 72,000 players simultaneously.
Of course, the enthusiasm for Warhammer 3 ebbed noticeably in the last few months. In the last few months, Total War has averaged just 8,000 to 12,000 players. This is where Warhammer 2 can trump its direct successor: During its entire lifespan, Creative Assembly’s real-time strategy title never dropped below 15,000 players.
Of course, it’s not exactly surprising that fans are now looking for new occupational therapies when there’s no new content. Total War: Warhammer 3 was also plagued by other problems in the months following its release. We have summarized for you in this analysis exactly where the problem was.

Now, on August 23, 2022, Immortal Empires, the major expansion for Warhammer 3, was released – but only in the beta version for the time being. But that doesn’t stop the number of players from skyrocketing again: So played the same last week 119,166 players the Total War part at the same time on Steam, which increases the previous numbers tenfold.
There are still almost 45,000 hobby strategists missing from the original player status as of February 2022, but what is not there could perhaps still be. After all, Fabiano already stated in his beta test for Immortal Empires: Total War has never been so good.
