The Old World is the name of the main campaign of Total War: Warhammer.

The provinces and factions from the Old World are also included in the Mortal Empires campaign for Total War: Warhammer II.

As a region[edit | edit source]

In Warhammer Fantasy lore, the term refers to the general area west of the World's Edge Mountains, north of the Badlands and south of Norsca. It is a temperate area mostly dominated by human factions such as The Empire, Bretonnia and Kislev. The Old World campaign itself is broader in scope, including the Badlands, Norsca and the World's Edge Mountains.

Overview[edit | edit source]

See campaign for a general guide on how to play campaign.

  • There are 5 free playable races, divided into 8 playable factions with 13 starting legendary lords. See the bottom of the page for a list of playable factions/lords.
  • Each faction has a different starting position, difficulty, and unique gameplay.
  • DLC content adds many new playable races/factions/lords (even if you don't own any DLC, those factions still appear in the campaign for you to interact with, they just won't be playable).
  • The Chaos Invasion is a scripted event that happens later in the campaign. It is much like the arrival of Attila in Attila: Total War. Each of the factions (unless you yourself are playing the Warriors of Chaos) needs to deal with Archaon in one way or another - either through joining him or defeating him.
  • The Regional occupation system limits which races can occupy which provinces.
