In a video titled “Enter the World of Slanesh,” fans can get their first full glimpse of what the Ultimate Chaos God Faction will bring. Total War: Warhammer 3,
The trailer shows off a slew of demons that will make up the roster of Salanesh, including Nakri – who will lead the faction as a legendary lord.
Nakri will excel at hunting and killing individual units on the battlefield, as they have an incredibly high range of motion. He also has a passive called Harvester of Soul, which means the death of any nearby enemies will heal him. That process will be accelerated by his second ability – Willing Pre – which lowers the melee skills of enemy combatants.
Nakari’s fast pace matches that of the rest of Slanesh’s roster, who will use “unique speed and armor-piercing abilities” to conduct a hit-and-run playstyle within the fight. Players will also be rewarded for killing rooting units, symbolizing the excessive and sadistic nature of the faction’s protector, Salanesh.
In the big picture of the campaign, Salanesh will “strive to spread the Dark Prince’s hedonistic message at every turn”. Salanesh worshippers will be able to “gift” defeated enemies that negatively affect them, and can use a mechanic called seduction to forcibly subdue other factions on the map. They will also collect devotees through various means, allowing players to create cults, disciple senas, and more vassals.
