When Creative Assembly outlined what would be included in Immortal Empires from day one, the studio introduced two particularly exciting new features – “Dynamic End-Game Scenario” and “Improved Victory Situation”.

The end-game scenario will be “random mid-to-late-game challenges” that are being presented to players who are starting to steam their campaign towards the end. Although no details have been shared yet, players can expect “Greenskin Invasion or Resurrection of the Undead” as some examples.

Meanwhile, the revised victory scenario would mean that instead of each group winning the same settlement to win the campaign, the Creative Assembly “simplified the victory requirements to more meaningful objectives by avoiding any arbitrary playstyle requirements.”
