Creative Assembly and Sega have detailed the Great Kathai faction in Total War: Warhammer III. The developers released a spectacular trailer showing the cities of the state, as well as several battles, and shared details on the official website.
Great Kathai is a large state in the Eastern Lands, ruled by the Emperor of the Celestial Dragons and the Empress of the Moon. In terms of power, they are comparable to the gods, so they decided not to make them lords. This title went to the heads of individual provinces – Zhao Ming and Miao Ying. They both wield powerful magic and are capable of transforming into dragons, making them incredibly valuable fighters. The developers promised to tell more about the lords in the foreseeable future.
In Total War: Warhammer III, Great Kathai has several features. The army of this state shows itself well in defense, because for many years it repulsed the attacks of the forces of Chaos. Faction melee and ranged soldiers are given bonuses if they are next to each other. Special units will include flying ships and alchemists. And on the global map, Great Katah receives a lot of income from the local Silk Road. These funds are used to finance and fortify the Great Bastion, a huge citadel that is built on the border with the wastelands of Chaos. Defending the fortress will be one of the key parts of the Cathay campaign.
Total War: Warhammer III will be released in early 2022 on PC. The game was supposed to be released at the end of 2021, but it was recently postponed.
