Total War Warhammer now has a Battle Map Editor


Creative Assembly has now released a beta version of their Battle Map Editor for Total War: Warhammer, allowing Windows 10 users to create custom battle maps and share them with other players.  

This editor is in beta and is set to release at the end of February with full support for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. Right now the beta version of this editor has a few bugs, though it will allow players to create larger and more complex maps than ever before. 

The map editor for Total War Warhammer is called Terry and below is the editor’s feature set and how to access it on Steam.  


BETA caveats:

• This Beta is for Windows 10 users only. Windows 7 and 8 will be available at full release at the end of February.
• Grass currently does not generate on maps in game. 

Terry’s features:

• Land battle map editing for custom and multiplayer battle.
• Full suite of environment models, props, SFX and VFX for map creation.
• A.I. hints, deployment editing, no-go regions, terraforming, texture terrain painting, vegetation terrain painting and more.
• Customizable layout and layering within the tools for easy organization and navigation.
• Easy one click export that creates a .pack file for you map, allowing you to toggle it on and off in the Total War Launcher as you wish.
• Live map transfer in multiplayer. Simply host a game with a custom map and other players will download it automatically without the need to subscribe on the workshop. The maps will be deleted after the battle (unless subscribed to in the workshop or manually placed in the game data folder)
• Share maps via steam workshop and subscribe to your favourites. Having maps enabled will not affect your ability to join multiplayer games.

To access the beta: (only need to do this once)

• Log into your account that owns Total War: WARHAMMER
• In Steam, hover over “LIBRARY” and select “TOOLS”
• Search “Total War: WARHAMMER – Assembly Kit BETA” and install.
• Right-click “Total War: WARHAMMER – Assembly Kit BETA” and select “Properties”.
• In the Properties window, select the “BETAS” tab.
• In the “Enter beta access code to unlock private betas:” please enter the code: fjesij4issfgwse30s334
• Click the “Check Code” button, then select “cascade2 -” from the “Select the beta you would like to opt into:” drop-down box.
• The Assembly Kit will update to the version including the Terry tool.



This new tool will allow Total War fans to create new maps for the game, opening up a great opportunity to create maps that are similar to the City of Gondor, Helm’s Deep and other fictional locations. These maps can even be used when playing the game’s multiplayer or shared via the SteamWorkshop. 

Sadly this editor does not allow players to create or edit the game’s campaign map, as it is created using a very different set of tools and 3rd party applications that Creative Assembly cannot freely distribute.
