Next Total War Game Is Called Total War: Three Kingdoms and Is Set in Ancient China
During the last couple of years, Creative Assembly dived into the Warhammer universe with the company releasing two Total War titles set in the fantasy world of Humans and Orcs. The last historical Total War title was Total War: Attila, which got released back in 2014. After four years will get another historical Total War title called Total War: Three Kingdoms.
The game starts in 190CE, and it follows three heroes who are trying to bring back peace to the country divided by war. As Creative Assembly explains “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.”
So it seems we will have a choice between three factions, and instead of battling against all other factions, the player will probably be allied with two other heroes, with Dong Zhuo as the main enemy. Of course, if the game follows the famous novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the player’s ultimate goal will be conquering other factions, after defeating Dong Zhuo, and reuniting the Chinese Empire.
The game is set for fall of 2018, and it seems it won’t be completely historically accurate since it does seem that Creative Assembly took the most beloved work of Chinese literature and based the upcoming game on its story.
