Total War : Three Kingdoms Announced

Creative Assembly has announced a new Total War game set in ancient China.

The best-selling Total War series is going back to the ancient world, this time in China. Creative Assembly announced the launch of Total War: Three Kingdoms on January 10th with a two-minute gameplay trailer on YouTube and via Twitter.

Three Kingdoms looks to be a return to “the real world” but with a twist. While the game is based on the real events surrounding the power struggle that occurred at the end of the Han Dynasty, it looks to draw heavily from the 14th-century Chinese epic novel that has become a fountain of inspiration for films, literature, and games.

The series originated back in 2000 with SHOGUN: Total War, talking place in feudal Japan. The series then went to medieval Europe, the ancient Mediterranean, and to the fantasy Warhammer universe in recent outings.

Three Kingdoms looks to possibly be adopting the more story-based approach taken by the Warhammer titles in the series, with gameplay revolving around three “brothers”: Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei.

The game page is already up on Steam, with a release date of Fall 2018. If Creative Assembly can leverage what they learned from the excellent Warhammer games and combine it with a fresh, quasi-historical setting, this could be a major hit.
