Total War: THREE KINGDOMS - What we know so far

The drums of war will be banging loud and clear when players head to ancient China in Creative Assembly and SEGA's upcoming strategy game Total War: THREE KINGDOMS.

Featuring a combination of turn-based map roaming and real-time combat, the game will see players embark on a conquest for glory - either by creating robust alliances or conquering all others by any means necessary.

Ahead of the game's release on March 7th 2019 for Steam PC, here's what we know so far about the next installment in the multi-award-winning Total War series.

Story and features


Total War: THREE KINGDOMS take place in 190CE China, where the beautiful but fractured land and its people calls out for a new emperor to lead them into a new era, and a better life (hopefully). Players can choose one of 11 legendary Warlords in their bid to conquer the kingdoms, as well as recruiting heroic characters to aide your cause, and dominate your enemies on military, technological, political, and economic fronts.

The game is modeled on Guanxi, the Chinese concept of dynamic inter-relationships, which takes a paradigm-shifting approach to character agency by using iconic, larger-than-life heroes and their relationships defining the future of ancient China. Each of these characters is brought to life with their own unique personality, motivations, and likes/dislikes.

They also form their own deep relationships with each other, both positive and negative, that shape how your story plays out. THREE KINGDOMS features beautiful UI, vibrant vistas and authentic Chinese-inspired artwork, which will give gamers a true taste of ancient China.
