The Viking Invasion of the 9th Century changed the course of British history forever. The Norsemen flooded land in search of glory and riches, but many chose to stay and establish a foothold in the north of England and East Anglia. In Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, players can carve out their own kingdom of Danelaw, playing as one of two factions of the Great Viking Army (Northymbre and East Engle). The latest cinematic shows off Guthfrid, King of Viking Northymbre. Though he started life as a slave, his prosperous kingdom is an attractive target for a new wave of invaders.
After achieving any long victory condition, players of Thrones of Britannia must brace for war as powerful armies will arrive to take what is theirs. If they can withstand and overcome this onslaught they will be awarded the highest honor, an Ultimate Victory and, in turn, the ultimate bragging rights will be theirs.
