The first Total War: Three Kingdoms expansion will bring tigers to the battlefield

Following a string of smaller DLCs, Creative Assembly have announced the first full expansion for Total War: Three Kingdoms. Named The Furious Wild, it's inviting you to delve into the jungles of Southern China to meet four new warlords. They each lead a new playable faction - I'm a big fan of the one who brings tigers to the battlefield, she definitely looks cooler than…

Dropping today, the new A World Betrayed Chapter Pack adds two new factions, a new time period and some brand new units - but really, it's all about those rascals Sun Ce…

Total War: Three Kingdom’s Mandate Of Heaven brings a new starting time

Creative Assembly roll back the clock of Total War: Three Kingdoms in the new expansion released today, letting players start eight years earlier in a wee prequel campaign then keep that same save on rolling through regular history. Mandate Of Heaven is its name, and getting stuck into the Yellow Turban Rebellion is its game. Whether you buy it or not, more characters, units, and…

Total War: Three Kingdoms revising plans following Eight Princes DLC feedback

How curious it was the first DLC following the mega-hit launch of Total War: Three Kingdoms (the fastest-selling of the series so far, they boast) skipped past the end of the Three Kingdoms era to tell a story of a follow-up civil war. Developers Creative Assembly now suggest that the Eight Princes DLC was perhaps a misstep, and say they're bending their plans following player…

Total War: Three Kingdoms expansion has eight princes, but no Purple Rain

Eight Princes - the latest expansion for Total War: Three Kingdoms - has launched, bringing with it eight playable princes with the singular aim of carving their legacy into the sinewy flesh of history. None of them are from Minneapolis though, I've checked.Taking place in the year 291CE, a generation has passed since the events of the Three Kingdoms period and while power between the…

Total War: Elysium will be a historywar card game, eventually

The strategic armyman management of Total War is being flattened into digital cardboard with Total War: Elysium, a collectable card game made by Creative Assembly. The series overlords call this "a multiplayer strategy game based on Total War background," a background which is... history? That's just history isn't it? Unless Napoleon's next match after Sun Ren there ↑ is against Thorgrim Grudgebearer, mind. I'd watch…

Total War: Three Kingdoms will channel Dynasty Warriors in a new survival mode

A new wave survival mode coming to Total War: Three Kingdoms will pit three heroes against hundreds of enemy soldiers. Dynasty Mode is its name, and it's coming in a free update next week. It looks to be inspired by the more fantastical side of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms as well as, y'know, probably the Dynasty Warriors games (which are also based on…

Total War: Three Kingdoms launches mod support

Official mod support launched for Total War: Three Kingdoms this week, letting players create new units, add new battle maps, tweak balance, pretty it up, and more. Who knows what else we might see over time? And can someone add a proper dating sim to meet hot new kingdoms in my area? The tools do have some big limitations, mind, so don't expect mods with…

Records mode makes Total War: Three Kingdoms less romantic

By default, Total War: Three Kingdoms doesn't look like a gritty, realistic simulation of ancient Chinese warfare. Sure, the political and espionage systems make my head spin, but its heroic generals give it some of the same feel as Total War: Warhammer. Enter Records mode, an alternate, more historically accurate way to play Three Kingdoms. Creative Assembly's new mode reduces generals back to mere mortals,…

Almost anybody could be a spy in Total War: Three Kingdoms

Total War: Three Kingdoms is already making me paranoid, and I've not even played it yet. Spies have always been a minor part of the Total War series, but the number of options for espionage in Creative Assembly's take on ancient China is making me dizzy. Characters can leave your service under false pretence, acting as double agents after being hired by a rival faction.…

Total War: Three Kingdoms’s new diplomacy systems look deviously intricate

War may never change, but diplomacy sure could use an overhaul in the Total War series. The upcoming Total War: Three Kingdoms is going to be shaking things up a bit, if Creative Assembly's massive two part dev-blog post on the subject is any indication. Personal relationships are going to be important if you plan on uniting China under your reign, and while two nations…
