The year is 190CE. China is in turmoil. The Han Dynasty crumbles before the child-emperor. He is but a figurehead; a mere puppet for the tyrant warlord Dong Zhuo. It is a brutal and oppressive regime, and as Dong Zhuo’s power grows, the empire slips further into the cauldron of anarchy. But hope yet blossoms.

Three heroes, sworn to brotherhood in the face of tyranny, rally support for the trials ahead. Scenting opportunity, warlords from China’s great families follow suit, forming a fragile coalition in a bid to challenge Dong Zhuo’s remorseless rule. Will they triumph against the tyrant, or will personal ambition shatter their already crumbling alliance and drive them to supremacy?

The crucible fizzes. Allegiances shift. The fires of conflict stoke opportunity. Only one thing is certain: the very future of China will be shaped by its champions.

A new age is now upon us! Get ready to fight!

~ The next chapter for Total War - TK ~


The Eight Princes Chapter Pack is a new DLC the package that comes 8. august on Steam. This part of the DLC is set 100 years after the events of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, and features a new cast of playable factions led by the foremost princes of the Jin dynasty. These Eight Princes offer substantially different campaign mechanics, focusing their playstyles in fascinating and unique ways.


The War of the Eight Princes takes places after the events covered by Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, with the campaign itself beginning in 291 CE.

After the establishment of the Jin dynasty in 266 CE by Sima Yi’s descendants, the passing of Emperor Wu – formerly Sima Yan – and the incapability of his heir and the new emperor Sima Zhong – now Emperor Hui – has plunged the Sima family into civil war as the princes chosen by the kingdom’s late ruler vie for control.

The eponymous Eight Princes are as follows:

  1. Sima Yong, The Shrewd Defender
  2. Sima Jiong, The Imperious Regent
  3. Sima Yue, The Imperial Overseer
  4. Sima Ai, The Principled Administrator
  5. Sima Ying, The Beloved Governor
  6. Sima Lun, The Usurper Prince
  7. Sima Liang, The Rightful Regent
  8. Sima Wei, The Tempestuous General

Each of the eight princes want to seize control of the Jin Empire for themselves. You can chack out more about this DLC on Steam right here " TW - Eight Princes DLC " And watch the new trailer blow this.

I hope it's historical, though hero units are always op in every game.

Edit: I don't blame them. I've always liked the fantasy Dynasty Warrior-like action in my martial arts movies, just let me disable it in-game. Do not want.

What do you mean "Back"? They've been working on this since the last historical title, or did you not know they have seperate teams for Warhammer, Hirstorical, and DLC?

I knew about them having separate teams. I just wasn't a fan of the two Warhammer entries or the Rome 2 based entries. Eh, I guess I should've said," Yes! Finally a historical game I'm actually interested in! The fantasy in Warhammer was too off putting for me; but to their credit both of the Warhammer entries looked amazing."

Yeah that would've been a better way to word it, Rome 2 was meh and Attila was great but it's DLC was mediocre for the most part. And the Warhammer entries are far too simple, but I still enjoy them.

By the way, them having separate teams is an overstatement. Those teams are dedicated only for a specified period of time.

Reusing assets, shuffling arists around, moving the core engineer team to update, fix and polish the engine codebase of one game then another does not count as having separate teams either.

Oh, they do have separate teams, but almost never for longer periods of time. (And it's sometimes like Assassin's Creed Unity, engine programmers work on it for 2 years, and one full team only for 1 year. So it had not been developed for three years, at least not in a fully dedicated way.) CA would have to own up to it themselves, though, how long their full teams work on their games, and how long their other "migratory" teams do...
