Sega Publishing Korea has released information about Nurgle, the god of corruption appearing in Total War Warhammer 3. Nurgle, also known as the Plague God, is the Chaos God of disease, corruption, death and resurrection.
The corrupt smallpox-causing agent, Plaguefather Kugas, is Nurgle’s most beloved favorite. Always eager to incubate new diseases, Kugas is constantly advancing into the mortal battlefields, testing new diseases, hoping that one day he will create the perfect plague to infect even the gods.
Nurgle’s Legion is the incarnation of the plague god they worship, and they crush the enemies with various toxic attacks and strategic consumption damage while holding onto their opponents in close combat with their skin that is afflicted with disease but has high resilience. These plague-infested warriors enjoy stronger combat bonuses the more damage they absorb in battle, and can use abilities like ‘Corruption, Corruption Glorious’ to spread powerful diseases across the enemy lines.
Even in the campaign, Nurgle is eager to deliver his poisonous gifts everywhere he gets the chance. Nurgle’s faction can create and spread various plagues, and its unfortunate victims will receive various harmful effects, but allies will enjoy all kinds of bonuses. In addition, Nurgle’s buildings go through a cycle of growth and death periodically, and the Legion can be recruited by immediately summoning units in a damaged state.
