The British Isles are fractured into pieces, and through blood, war and fire, kings will rise up. But who will rule over all? It’s coming in Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia. It takes place during a defining moment of the British Isles’ history, following Alfred the Great’s victory over the Viking invaders at the Battle of Edington in 878 AD. Playing as the Vikings, Gaelic clans, Welsh tribes or Anglo-Saxons, players will embark on Great British campaigns of empire-building and conquest across the most detailed Total War map to date.
“Our design philosophy for this, the very first Total War Saga game, has been one of re-invention and focus, looking at classic Total War mechanics and consolidating them to deliver more meaningful choices for the player” said Game Director Jack Lusted. “We want everything to tie together in a natural and absorbing way that faithfully represents this fascinating flashpoint in history.”
