It Appears WoC may be playable: to me this potentially indirectly hints,combined map is on release

The only reason I can see why we can play WoC in TWW3 is if WoC have a place on either the TWW3 campaign map or the combined one. Unless there is a LL specific to WoC that CA is hiding and thus included only on the TWW3 map, this hints the combined map will be playable IMO.

I suppose the only time a faction was playable in custom but not campaign was Bretonnia, right?

One caveat I can think of off the top of my head: CA may have just mistakenly shown this roster even though they're not at all playable on release.

Edit:



Well, I think this about answers my question.

    Except CA has confirmed various times that ME will arrive after launch, the wait may be shorter than in WH2, but it's not going to be at launch.

    Didn't expected WoC to be reworked at launch

    I don't think the combined map will be available on release. CA have said previously even if ready they would not want it to distract from the game specific campaign on release, which I totally understand because I'd be straight into the combined map!

    I wouldn't bet on it being shorter. If anything I'd assume it is longer. Especially with the increase in time between releases as well as them perhaps wanting to avoid releasing the next ME in the state that ME was released in. One month last time around. I wouldn't be surprised by it taking three months this time around.

    Oh? huh, so maybe this was just a mistake then. I hope they at least show it (the combined map) before release. I'd say if they're comfortable enough to be screenshotting the WoC like this they've probably been fairly involved with intermingling in the rosters.

    Yeah, personally I'm anticipating a Norsca type situation except for the combined map myself. It's better to set myself up for disappointment IMO

    At launch when WoC won't even be playable, not really telling us much.

    I'm kinda expecting Sigvald to never get moved already which would be disappointing.

    This is a development build. We all know most the content will be in the game by release because they need the armies for the AI factions and stuff. But it won't be available to play at release so they can focus getting the main content out first.

    So I think you are jumping to conclusions.

    I wasn't aware of the above, it appears I probably am.

    I'd like for that to be proven wrong of course, and CA may have upped the release day. Until I know that though I'm going to assume it'll take longer than even Mortal Empires did to come (a month)

    This is just the ME build.

    I can not remember if at the release of TWW2, before mortal empire, they had all races from TWW1 pickable in custom battle, although you couldn´t campaign with them

    As an aside, my Total War nostalgia meter is off the charts when looking at this. I'm glad they're going back to this format. (:

    Yeah, that's a good point, I like that and you can see everything all at once. Hopefully the campaign faction selection is just as good
