Total War: Three Kingdoms Announced For Release In Fall 2018

Total War: Three Kingdoms Announced For Release In Fall 2018

Alongside the core historical-based games, the Total War series has expanded to include free-to-play mobile (Total War Battles™: KINGDOM) and PC titles (Total War™: ARENA), now in development.

Creative Assembly has enjoyed a lot of success with the Total War series, most recently partnering up with Games Workshop for a couple fantasy treks through the world of Warhammer.

This isn't the first time that video games have tackled the Three Kingdoms era; famously the Dynasty Warriors franchise is in part based on the 14th retelling of the period Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

It's even longer since there's been one with a genuinely new location and time period, but the idea of a game set in ancient China actually seems a very good fit for the series. While other potential platforms have not been announced, the game will be released on Steam and is available to be added to wishlists now.

"It is 190CE and China is in turmoil".

In the game, the child-emperor is being manipulated by a tyrant, Dong Zhuo, who exerts an oppressive rule over China.

The first trailer for Total War: Three Kingdoms is light on gameplay details, but does set the tone with lavish CG. Three heroes will swear allegiance to one another and rise up with the support of warlords from great families, banding together to challenge him. Will they triumph against the tyrant, or will personal ambition shatter their already crumbling alliance and drive them to supremacy? More surprising still, the PC title is scheduled to release this September.
