Creative Assembly has announced that the turn-based strategy game Total War: Warhammer will be getting a map editor via a free update in February 2017.
With the new map editor players will be able to create their own Battle Maps. Players will have access to features such as terraforming, vegetation and AI and even map file packing.
With the update the game will also be getting a live map transfer function that allows players to join servers that are running custom maps. Once players join one of these servers their game will automatically download the custom map without the need to subscribe via Steam's mod workshop.
The beta version of the map editor currently only works on Windows 10, but according the forum post Windows 7 and Windows 8 will also be supported once the tool officially releases in February.
