Total War: Three Kingdoms heads to ancient China later this year

Total War Three Kingdoms Announced

Total War Three Kingdoms Announced

As such, the developers made a decision to just go ahead and release the trailer for Total War: Three Kingdoms.

The game will be set in 190CE, and will focus on the heroes of the period as they fight to unite China under a single banner.

Creative Assembly is putting down its warhammer and returning to the real world. "The Han Dynasty crumbles before the child-emperor, who is a mere puppet for the tyrant Dong Zhuo". It makes sense that the United Kingdom, based development studio would focus much of their attention to detail around European history, but they did branch out every once in a while with games like Total War: Shogun and Total War: Atilla.

Total War is continuing to go strong over seventeen years later, with plenty of historical eras and locations still left to visit. Scenting opportunity, warlords from China's great families follow suit, forming a fragile coalition in a bid to challenge Dong Zhuo's remorseless rule. Rebelling against a tyrannical regime, these heroes will either triumph in the face of oppression, or fall prey to their own personal ambitions, shattering the tentative alliances they have formed.

In November, Creative Assembly discussed the direction of its historical games-teasing scant information on what would become series spin-off Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, Rome 2's Empire divided DLC, and a then unnamed "brand new era" in the process. Now, with the cat out of the bag and Three Empires on track for launch later in 2018, it looks as if Total War devotees and turn-based strategy diehards will have plenty to keep them busy this year. While other potential platforms have not been announced, the game will be released on Steam and is available to be added to wishlists now.
