Hi all!

It’s been a while since we’ve made an article on the progress of the Witcher: Total War; I felt putting up an article between now and the last was, for lack of a better phrase: pointless and I would let the image updates speak for themselves. - The mod was still in early development, working on different things here and there, and it was all still being planned out. Now, however, the team and I feel we’ve reached good point in the mod where we can say something substantial about development and share it with all of you. Of course all I write is not set in stone and no dates or timeframes will be given. This has always been a hobby of ours, never a job!

It has always been a vision that we would start with a smaller campaign with a handful of factions, release that, and then move onto the next, using these smaller campaigns as stepping stones until we reach the Grand Campaign. Initially we developed the ‘Velen/Novigrad’ campaign as our first campaign but due to technical issues we had to put that idea on the shelf. It’s replacement and the planned first release is:

Temeria in Turmoil

Temeria in Turmoil

(This map and all subsequent maps will be cut out from the Grand Campaign map. The maps shown are demonstrative and not the final borders of each campaign.)

Set during the events of the Witcher 1. Will you play as one of the last vestiges of the Scoia’tael, taking control of Yaevinn and Toruviel’s Commandos? Will you play as the newly established Order of the Flaming Rose and enact your Grand Master’s grand plan? Will you play as the Kingdom of Temeria and be able to quell the infighting that’s taking place within your borders?

I have a list of ‘priority units and characters', and a list of units I aim to revisit; I have been working through these lists which leads us closer and closer to reaching this first goal. Once units are done, by which I mean, rigged, implemented, given UI, voice lines and balanced I will turn my focus to campaign development! The map for the ‘Temeria in Turmoil' campaign is still in its early stages. Once the campaign is in a playable state we will call on for a team of testers to assist in, well, testing the campaign; balancing, checking for bugs, etc. After this stage it will then be released to all.

After the release of the first campaign we shall move onto the next, which is undecided, and deciding is not a priority right now. When the time comes the team and I will dis cuss and vote on how we should proceed. On what you might ask? Well, let's go through them…

Third Lormark War

Third Lormark War


Set during the events of the Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. Who has the rightful claim to the Pontar Valley? Will you play as Aedirn and claim Upper Aedirn for yourself? Will you play as Kaedwen and claim the Lormark as rightfully yours? Will you play as the Free Pontar State and claim the land as your own independent kingdom? Will you play as the Scoia’tael, taking control of Iorveth’s Commando and support Saskia in her fight for independence?

Third Northern War – The Winter War

Third Northern War - The Winter War

Set during the events of the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. King Vizimir, King Demavend and King Foltest have been assassinated and during this time of instability Nilfgaard has once again launched an assault on the North! Will you play as Nilfgaard and finally break the North and make them bend knee? Will you play as the Kingdom of Kaedwen and be able to fight Nilfgaard back across the Pontar? Will you play as the Kingdom of Redania and hold the Black Ones at the river as you invade your ally across the Kestrel Mountains? Will you play as the Holy State of Novigrad and wait out the war?

Second Northern War - Thronebreaker

Second Northern War - Thronebreaker


Nilfgaard has crossed the Yaruga! Will you play as the Nilfgaardian hordes and wipe out the eastern flank of the North? Will you play as the Scoia’tael, taking control of Eldain’s Commando and support Nilfgaard’s invasion? Will you play as the Kingdom of Aedirn or the Twinned Kingdoms of Lyria and Rivia and push Nilfgaard back into the swamps of Angren? Will you play as the Dwarves of Mahakam and remain neutral or pick a side in the war outside your dwarven strongholds?

Second Northern War - Western Operations

Second Northern War - Western Operations

Nilfgaard has crossed the Yaruga! Will you play as the Nilfgaardian hordes and wipe out the western flank of the North? Will you play as the Scoia’tael, taking control of Isengrim’s Commando and support Nilfgaard’s invasion? Will you play as the Kingdom of Verden and side with Nilfgaard or fight the Black Ones. Will you play as the Kingdom of Cidaris and have to fight both Nilfgaard and your neighbour to the south? Will you play as the Kingdom of Temeria and be able to hold Nilfgaard in the south and a possible invasion from the west. Will you play as Skellige and raid the Nilfgaardians as they advance?

After these stepping stones we then work on a ‘Northern Realms’ Campaign set in 1269 with all previous factions plus others, then after THAT will be in a great position to push towards a Grand Campaign release with factions south of the Amell Mountains! Thank you for being with us for this journey, and I want to say a big thank you to my team, to whom I could not have done any of this without!

Amazing work guys! So excited for this are there any plans for voices from witcher 2? For example kaedweni knights/soldiers have battle cries like "For the king! For Kaedwen!". So when your select kaedweni troops they will say this for example.

100% - I've extracted all the voice files from W1, 2, 3 and Thronebreaker and aim to use them for units! Some units already have lines but not all yet! :)

I am very excited, I am not game developer myself, but I know one or two things about programming and why it took so long, I am just curious about is there any possible planned release date?

No planned release date; we are doing this for fun/in our own free time and thus the development can be fast one week and barely anything the next, so there's no telling when it might be out!
