Q: Who is Karanak?

A: The Hound of Vengeance himself, Karanak pounces into WARHAMMER III with Update 5.1. This three-headed daemonic Flesh Hound prowls and guards the Chaos God Khorne’s grand throne room in the Blood God’s Domain. He searches every shadow for intruders and interlopers. Should Karanak sight suitable prey, he pounces without mercy. Karanak's kills are quicksilver perfection, the better to swiftly feed both his hunger and his master's need for spilt blood.

Q: When will he be made available?

A: Karanak is available exclusively with a CA Account and will be released alongside Update 5.1 on 25th June.

Q: How can I unlock Karanak in Total War: WARHAMMER III? 

A: If you have previously completed CA account registration using an email address or connecting a platform account such as Steam, you do not need to perform further steps as you have already registered and configured your CA account, and Karanak will appear at the appropriate moment. 

If you don't have a CA Account, you will need to register for one here. Once your CA Account registration is complete, link your account to the platform you’ll be playing on (e.g. Steam). Then, once you have reached rank 16 when playing as Skarbrand, Archaon, Kholek, Belakor, Daemon Prince, or Valkia, you will receive a mission to unlock Karanak.

Please Note: Karanak is only playable within Total War: WARHAMMER III and will not be playable in the first two entries of the trilogy: Total War: WARHAMMER, Total War: WARHAMMER II.

Q: What does the future look like for the CA Account?

A: Our ambition is to continue to deliver early and exclusive content and insider experiences for account holders, but also create something truly cross-platform, allowing you to securely move from platform to platform, retaining your progress and ownership. We are also working on a new community and rewards initiative that will replace the Total War dashboard and will be accessible via your CA Account.


Please bear with us as we may be quiet for a while on the rewards front. For now, the Total War dashboard will still be your destination for digital goodies and exclusives for Total War and we encourage you to opt-in to our newsletter for the latest beats for Total War and all CA games.


More to come, watch this space!
