Total War: WARHAMMER Wiki

The map at the beginning of the campaign. Each coloured area represents a different faction. The icons represent resources for trading.

For the lore region, see The Old World (region)

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.


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.
