WATCH: Total War Three Kingdoms Cinematic Announcement Trailer Is Officially Here
Creative Assembly has been busy the last few years working on Warhammer and, apparently, a new title just announced called Total War Three Kingdoms. With the company having promised last year that they would bring more historical titles to players, the arrival of such an epic trailer based on historical times and places is not completely surprising.
Total War Three Kingdoms is set in 190 CE, in China, featuring warriors of incredible skill and strength fighting against overwhelming odds. The incredible cinematic trailer doesn’t offer any gameplay, but the visuals and premise do make for an exciting prospect. Take a look at the trailer below:
The trailer above features beautiful transitions between animated art and cinematic action. The blend of visuals, music, and narrative paint a picture that gives the viewer a solid idea of what they can expect the story of the game to be about. Gorgeous landscapes give way to clashing armies and tense confrontations that will certainly make the viewer want to see more about this title. Here is what the synopsis of the game is from their YouTube channel:
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 is the next major historical strategy game in the award-winning Total War series.”
Currently, there is no solid release date for Total War Three Kingdoms, but Creative Assembly is hard at work. What is known is that the game is expected in the Fall of this year for PC. Fans seeking to get this game on their wishlist can do so on Steam here.
