Total War: Three Kingdoms goes to ancient China, launches this Fall

Total War: Three Kingdoms goes to ancient China, launches this Fall

According to publisher Sega, Total War: Three Kingdoms is inspired by the beauty and artistic style of the age, and will breathe life into the heroes of this fascinating period as they struggle to unite China under a single banner. It does place a focus on "champions", which suggests the game might expand on the legendary hero unit mechanics from Total War: Warhammer. 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.

Note that this isn't another expansion or experimental title; this is the next full, new historical Total War game, the first of its kind since 2013's Rome 2. It is a brutal and oppressive regime, and as Dong Zhuo's power grows, the empire slips further into the cauldron of anarchy. Scenting opportunity, warlords from China's great families follow suit, forming a fragile coalition in a bid to challenge Dong Zhuo's remorseless rule. Will they triumph against the tyrant, or will personal ambition shatter their already crumbling alliance and drive them to supremacy?

Total War Three Kingdoms

The Total War team made the announcement on Twitter, revealing that the historical strategy game will launch in Fall 2018, and will be the first game in the series to explore ancient China. However, the developer isn't hitting the breaks just yet, with it announcing the next major installment to its strategy series, Total War: Three Kingdoms. The game's Steam listing originally had a specific September 6 release date, but Sega hastily removed it.
