Watch Cao Cao – the first general to be revealed.

Also, due keep in mind, the mention of Linux, Mac and Windows is based on previous releases. Since A Total War Saga: THRONES OF BRITANNIA is the first release in this series. It’s only assumed this will be the case for the forthcoming debut in 2019.

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS is the first series game to take inspiration from a romanticised version of History. While taking influence by Luo Guanzhong’s 14th century historical epic ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms‘. Which follows the dramatic lives and deeds of near-mythical warlords. And also their retainers in 2nd to 3rd century China.

Trying to unite the country under their rule. Forging the next great dynasty. This is the first in-game cinematic of one such leader. Since he has designs on being the one true ruler of China. The cunning strategic mastermind, Cao Cao.
Bringing grand speeches, breath-taking siege battles and legendary duels.

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, Cao Cao will no doubt be the leader of choice. At least for players who enjoy a “divide and conquer” approach.

In another series first, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS features a romanticised version of the period. Including generals with preternatural fighting abilities. Also 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 experience. Find out more about this in the blog post.

You can follow Total war on Twitter and Facebook for more updates. Also add Total War: THREE KINGDOMS to your Steam Wishlist. We do not have Linux confirmation yet. So this news is just the announcement.
