“It is 190CE and China is in turmoil.”

“It is 190CE and China is in turmoil.”

Now, the developer has unveiled Total War: Three Kingdoms, which visits ancient China for the first time and is due later this year.

The game will be set in 190CE, and will focus on the heroes of the period as they fight to unite China under a single banner.

The new trailer, which dropped earlier than anticipated, shows off what to expect as the Total War series ventures into one of the most famous epics in history.

Engineer Behind Google Memo Sues Over Discrimination Against White Male Conservatives
Gudeman was reportedly fired from the company in 2016 after comments he made allegedly linking a Muslim colleague to terrorism. His claims: that Google unfairly discriminates against white men whose political views are unpopular with its executives.

Whether or not my Dynasty Warriors dreams come true in a tactical manner, this game will tackle the regime of Dong Zhuo and take place smack dab in the middle of the Han Dynasty. 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.

Total War: Three Kingdoms is the first full historical Total War game we've seen in a few years, marking a fresh step after both the fantastical Warhammer games and the smaller Saga titles. Sensing opportunity, warlords from China's great families follow suit, forming a fragile coalition in a bid to challenge Dong Zhuo's remorseless rule.

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. I was completely certain Game of Thrones would be the next instalment in the Total War franchise, but this is a welcome surprise. "The future of China will be shaped by their hands, but personal ambition threatens their already crumbling alliance". The listing on Steam has tagged it with a release date of September 6.
