Total War: Warhammer 3 Hits Xbox Game Pass On Day One (VIDEO)
As Xbox Game Pass prepares to extend its reach and game library considerably into the new year, the premium subscription service is now set to get yet another big game on day one of launch. As divulged in a recent announcement post on Xbox Wire, Creative Assembly’s anticipated fantasy strategy threequel Total War: Warhammer 3 is now officially coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC on day one of release.
Originally on track for a 2021 release window, September, unfortunately, saw Total War: Warhammer 3 struck with a delay into 2022. However, this new Xbox Game Pass announcement acts as an update in that regard, now scheduling a new launch date for February 17th, 2022, on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Versions for Linux and Mac are also coming from developer Feral Interactive shortly following launch day.
Yes, this is a real battle from Total War: WARHAMMER III

Acting as a conclusion to the Warhammer and Total War series’ collaboration, Total War Warhammer 3 was first announced back in February, notably bringing to life the tabletop franchise’s Kislev and Cathay factions into the battle against the formidable forces of Chaos. In addition to this latest Xbox Game Pass and release date news, an all-new trailer has also announced an early adopter-exclusive faction, the surprisingly melodic Ogre Kingdoms.
Total War: Warhammer 3 may be the latest confirmation for Xbox Game Pass, but quite a few games are already slated for 2022 well ahead of the new year’s debut. Arkane’s Vampiric multiplayer shooter Redfall is windowed for sometime next year, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is heading to members in April, and the awaited Bethesda space exploration RPG Starfield has a solid November date lined up for just over one year’s time.
Total War: Warhammer 3 releases on February 17th, 2022 for PC, with Linux and Mac ports also in the works.
