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.

Total War: Three Kingdoms ~ will take us to China this fall!

The Dynasty Warriors fans can probably do this story quite well.


Total War: Three Kingdoms are taking us to China, something some of you may understand by the name. The title is inspired by the popular novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, where we meet the leaders of the three dynasties: Cao Cao, Liu Bei and Sun Ce.

The story will thus take us to the bloody battles around 190, where the three leaders fight for the young emperor to not create an anarchy as a result of Dong Zhuo's creepy plans.


Besides that, we only get to know that the game is coming to PC this fall, so we do not know more about the gameplay changes and improvements that make. We will probably hear this in the next few months. While we wait, we can see the movie trailer that came with the press release.

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...

Just going off what they said, I have no reason to believe otherwise.
