  • Total War: Three Kingdoms Out This May!

    Total War: Three Kingdoms is set in ancient China, during the Three Kingdoms era. It celebrates a period of legendary heroes on and off the battlefield. Game characters are far more powerful heroes in combat than the leaders of previous Total War games.

    The Total War: Three Kingdoms release date is 23rd May 2019.

    Game Setting

    The power struggles of the period have since been mythologised, most famously in Luo Guanzhong's 14th-century epic Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The game is heavily influenced by the romanticised story.

    "The characters are very much the cornerstone of the game: their interactions, friendships, rivalries and personalities drive the campaign game like never before."

    New Elements

    Instead of picking a faction, like in the traditional in Total War - you pick a character from a choice of 11. You can find unique items for each character. Each character has differing active and passive abilities. Guardians are combat masters that can soak up damage, while Strategists can debuff enemies at range. Then commanders excel at buffing nearby friendly troops.

    The interpersonal dynamics between heroes will have consequences on the battlefield. If two heroes bond over the course of many battles, when one dies the other may fly into a frenzy and observe a period of mourning afterwards.

    The 12 Heroes

    Players will be able to choose between twelve different playable character warlords.

    Cao Cao, the Strategic Mastermind - Commander hero, a manipulative and ruthless warlord extremely good at diplomacy and can stage proxy wars between rivals.

    Dong Zhuo, the Tyrant - Vanguard hero, a brutal and corrupt tyrant who has seized control of the Han Empire and rules with an iron fist, governing through fear and intimidation.

    Gongsun Zan, the Ironfist General - Vanguard hero, the most warlike playable options, he can appoint military leaders to his faction’s civic offices.

    Kong Rong, the Master Scholar - Only strategist hero,  he has easier access to archers and artillery, and can give his units the ability to adopt special formations but he's the weakest hero fighter.

    Liu Bei, the Virtuous Idealist - Commander class, he's a humble and inspiring figure fighting for the common people. In battle, heritage lets him claim territory from Han without needing to fight anyone.

    Liu Biao, the Gentleman of the Han - Another commander hero, an elderly statesman and known as a master scholar and a staunch Han Empire traditionalist.

    Ma Teng, the Protector of the West - Vanguard hero, a warlord who protects the Han Empire’s western border. A Han loyalist who has access to regional cavalry patrols that improve military supplies for armies in adjacent commanderies.

    Sun Jian, the Tiger of Jiangdong - An aggressive Sentinel hero, his units get guerilla deployment in enemy territory and his armies also gain superior replenishment in enemy territory.

    Yuan Shao, the Dragon of the Yuan - Commander, an arrogant and indecisive leader with some impressive capabilities.

    Yuan Shu, the Ambitious Powermonger - Last commander, arrogant and decadent nobleman seeks to become emperor and has the ability to demand support from other factions in his claim to the throne.

    Zhang Yan, the King of Black Mountain - Champion, best one-on-one duellists and can inspire the common folk to flock to their faction

    Zheng Jiang, the Bandit Queen - Champion, most obscure historical figure among the playable warlords and the only character who actively opposes and seeks to burn down the Han Empire.
