Total War: Warhammer III's Seven Unused Race Slots Could Hint at Future DLCs
Total War: Warhammer III has seven empty race slots in its menu, giving us a possible hint about the future of the game.
As was recently pointed out in a Youtube video by the channel The Great Book of Grudges (video below), the race selection menu in the new Immortal Empires campaign appears to show seven empty slots.
This of course invites speculation that there may be seven future race packs planned for the game, and leads to questions about what they could be.
The most obvious candidate is the long-requested Chaos Dwarves. Small amounts of content for the Chaos Dwarves have already been found in the game files, so it seems certain that they will be coming at some point. They seem to be the most likely candidate for the first post-launch race pack in Total War: Warhammer III.
After that though, things become more speculative. The Great Book of Grudges named the Southern Realms or Dogs of War, Nagash, Ind, Khuresh, and Nippon as his predictions, while saying that he had no idea what could be planned for the seventh and final empty slot.
These picks don't seem too far fetched, with Khuresh and Ind already being partially present on the Immortal Empires map but with their respective races absent. Nagash and Nippon seem likely due to popular demand if nothing else, with players asking for them for a long time.
A mention should be given to Albion and Araby as well, although it seems fairly unlikely that these will ever be added to the game because their homelands are already quite densely populated with other races on the Immortal Empires map.
Ultimately, beyond the near-certainty of the Chaos Dwarves coming at some point, we can only speculate about what else Creative Assembly and Games Workshop may have planned for Total War: Warhammer III in the future.
