Total War: Three Kingdoms takes the strategy series to China

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

Total War: Three Kingdoms announced for Autumn 2018

Total War: Three Kingdoms has been announced, and it will be set during the Han Dynasty. Over the years, Creative Assembly has set the series in ancient Rome, Europe in the Middle Ages, feudal Japan and even Games Workshop's Warhammer fantasy universe.

"He is but a figurehead; a mere puppet for the tyrant warlord Dong Zhuo", reads the trailer's description on YouTube. 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. The brutal and oppressive regime's power grows as the empire slips further into anarchy.

"Three heroes, sworn to brotherhood in the face of tyranny, rally support for the trials ahead".

Plus, Harris ran for 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2017 after gaining 1,040 yards and two scores in 2016. He could even be a top 10 caliber pick, possessing speed, great hands and excellent route-running ability.

A lot of gamers have been asking for more historical games based around cultures and regions that have not been covered by the Total War franchise. Warlords of great families follow suit, forming a fragile coalition in a bid to challenge Dong Zhuo's remorseless rule.

Speaking of legendary soldiers, it seems likely that Three Kingdoms will retain the Legendary Lords mechanic utilized in the Total War: Warhammer series.

Total War fans have been eagerly awaiting news of the next historical title for some time now, with Warhammer having dominated much of Creative Assembly's attention in recent years. Will they triumph against the tyrant, or will personal ambition shatter their already crumbling alliance and drive them to supremacy? While other potential platforms have not been announced, the game will be released on Steam and is available to be added to wishlists now.
