Total War: Warhammer 3 – Be’lakor Enters The Fray
Mortals of the realm, tremble. Chaos enjoyers, delight. Now you can play as Daemon Prince Be’lakor in Total War: Warhammer 3.
That’s right: Total War: Warhammer 3 will soon feature playable Be’lakor. Lurking inside the Immortal Empires patch are a number of new Legendary Lords. Including the one and only Be’lakor.
As a fully playable Legendary Lord, Be’lakor will be a fantastic upgrade for the Warriors of Chaos faction. Let’s take a look at the big guy himself!
Total War: Warhammer 3 – The Be’lakor Breakdown
When it comes to immortal daemon princes, Be’lakor is the tops. He was the first daemon prince of Chaos, he’s shaken off the shackles of the chaos gods, and now he’ll join the ranks of the other Legendary Lords in the Mortal Realms.
Specifically, though, Be’lakor is a Legendary Lord for Warriors of Chaos. He is an undivided Daemon Prince at that. Meaning, Be’lakor kneels to no specific power, but instead draws on all four. In addition to being a powerful combatant, Be’lakor will reportedly have access to the widest selection of Chaos Daemons in the Warriors of Chaos.
He also has access to some powerful gifts, as Creative Assembly showcased earlier today:
- Unholy Manifestations: Like the Daemon factions, Be’lakor has access to four powerful Unholy Manifestations. Each of Be’lakor’s abilities is aligned with one of the four Chaos Gods and can be unlocked by defeating an army aligned with a specific god or through sacrificing Souls (a new resource shared by all Warriors of Chaos). They offer powerful and unique benefits: for example, the Tzeentch-aligned manifestation grants the ability to spawn a unique shadow rift in the local province that Be’lakor’s forces can use to teleport across the mortal plain. In addition, every Unholy Manifestation used grants additional Daemonic reinforcements for his forces.
- Be’lakor’s Shadow: Be’lakor has the unholy ability to corrupt those who stand against him. When he defeats a human Lord in battle, he can mark them with Chaos: slowly corrupting their soul and eventually converting them into a Daemon Prince to reinforce the ranks of his army.
- Chaos Gifts: Dedication to the Dark Gods (or remaining Undivided) is sacrosanct to the forces of Chaos, and through their battlefield exploits, their warriors are bestowed with unholy gifts. By offering defeated souls to the Gods, Warriors of Chaos can unlock powerful (but limited) rewards which boost their proficiency in battle or grant daemonic reinforcements.
Excited yet? With Be’lakor you get a powerful combatant. And you get a diverse army. Over the course of his campaign, players should have no trouble taking on all comers. Be’lakor starts on the Isle of Wight in Albion. But he has one goal: Destruction.
As we get closer, CA will showcase more of Be’lakor’s power and the WoC mechanics. So check back soon!
Poor Daniel, he doesn’t stand a chance
