Total War: "Three Kingdoms is the next major historical strategy game in the award-winning Total War series".

Total War: Three Kingdoms is due for release this autumn, and it'll be interesting to see how much Sega tries to push it in China itself. Creative Assembly appear to have jumped the gun in announcing Total War: Three Kingdoms, first by a quickly-deleted Tweet "announcing a new Total War era" which linked to a countdown pointing toward tomorrow, then by an early YouTube livestream revealing the trailer.

The game will likely focus on the conflict between portrayed in the famous Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel, but we wouldn't be surprised if this title expands upon the conventions and characters established by that story so that players will have more leaders and units to choose from.

"It is 190CE and China is in turmoil", reads the official announcement.

Speaking of legendary soldiers, it seems likely that Three Kingdoms will retain the Legendary Lords mechanic utilized in the Total War: Warhammer series. In 190 CE, China is under the tyrant Dong Zhuo who wields his power through the puppet child-emperor. Will they triumph against the tyrant, or will personal ambition shatter their already crumbling alliance and drive them to supremacy? The only Total War games the studio has developed since 2015's Total War: Attila have all taken place in the Warhammer universe.

The feedback from the community is quite positive and many are wondering whether the game will follow historical fiction and romanticize the Three Kingdoms, or if it will be more accurate to what actually happened during that burgeoning time in China.
