Total War: THREE KINGDOMS will be the first Total War title to take its inspiration from a romanticised version of History. Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the epic by Luo Guanzhong follows the deeds and lives of the near-mythical warlords of the 2nd and 3rd century China as they attempt to unite the country and seek out hegemony. The first in-game cinematic is appropriately based on the brilliant Cao Cao zi Mengde, of the Wei faction. Fans of the “divide and conquer” approach will find something special in Cao Cao. It’s coming to life in Spring 2019.
In another series first, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS features a romanticised version of the period including generals with preternatural fighting abilities able to tackle scores of enemy troops single-handedly and heavily influence battles. However, true to the series’ legacy, the game will also feature a Classic Mode that offers a more grounded, historically authentic Total War experience. More info can be found here.
