The Warhammer titles must have made millions for them to go straight to a third title.

What do you mean?

Honestly I could not get into the Warhammer I and II games...but this announcement includes Kislev, Cathay and (more obliquely) Nippon...all of which moisten my loins.

I mean, the series must have been extremely successful financially in order for them to make a third title, particularly before exploring any new historical material.

I think the Warhammer series is CA's most successful series of games to date by far. In between Warhammer titles, they did have Thrones of Britannia and Three Kingdoms. Thrones of Britannia was pretty much a bust, but Three Kingdoms has been their most successful historical title to date. They are doing rather well for themselves all in all :)

Allegedly there is a big historical reveal in the works from CA for some time this year.

Oh wow. Interesting. I'm guessing Kislev at last? Judging by the Winged Hussar like troops?

Hilarity ensues on Steam. You can't even get to the page to see the pre-order price  ::). I'm guessing it's like the others 59.99.

Interesting- Kislev and Cathay are the new factions.

^Yes, two very interesting factions (for me as a WH noob, at least). I'm sure that Three Kingdoms had a lot to do with the development of 'Cathay.'

The FAQ does agree it's Kislev, by the way, which I find slightly amusing since I've been trading a lot with them in Warhammer: Corsair recently. ;) (And have helped them negotiate something like an alliance with the Empire.)

There will be an early 'free' DLC of an unknown faction (perhaps this is "Nippon"?) for pre-orders, which will last until a week after release later this year.

The FAQ also reveals that Creative Assembly fully plans to integrate all three maps into a giant campaign (like Mortal Empires) sooner or later, as a free add-on if you own all the games. (I suspect it'll also be a paid DLC, of course.) However, they aren't focusing on that right now.

If the Free-LC is Nippon then I will pre-order.

Understandable. ;) We'll learn later before release.

I am also extremely psyched for Cathay and Kislev. This TWarhammer is by far the most interesting looking one for me.
