Sega and developer Creative Assembly have announced that Total War: Three Kingdoms will be the next iteration of the popular, long-running PC strategy game franchise.
Given that a spokesman said the announcement was made: “Earlier than expected,” it appears that Three Kingdom’s existence was about to be leaked. However, Sega says that the game will arrive in autumn 2018, so it must have been in development for some time.
Total War: Three Kingdoms will be set in China in 190AD. Sega sets the scene thus: “The Han Dynasty crumbles before the child-emperor, who is a mere puppet for the tyrant Dong Zhuo. The brutal and oppressive regime’s power grows as the empire slips further into anarchy. Yet hope blossoms in the form of three heroes, sworn to brotherhood in the face of calamity. Warlords of great families follow suit, forming a fragile coalition in a bid to challenge Dong Zhuo’s remorseless rule. The future of China will be shaped by their hands, but personal ambition threatens their already crumbling alliance.”
