‘Total War: Warhammer 3’ update 2.1 adds modding tools and Chaos confederation

Players can now mod 'Warhammer 3' with the addition of the Assembly Kit

Total War: Warhammer 3‘s latest update 2.1 has introduced the Assembly Kit for the modding community and much more.

As the patch notes for update 2.1 explain, the update introduces a bunch of critical fixes and quality-of-life changes but most notably, introduces the Assembly Kit which will help players mod the game.

This long-awaited feature wasn’t accessible when Total War: Warhammer 3 was released and is the biggest addition with 2.1.


In terms of gameplay updates, the biggest change that Creative Assembly has added is the ability for Archaon and Be’Lakor to confederate other Chaos factions, permanently assimilating them. You can check out highlights from the patch below:
