GC 18 – Total War: Three Kingdoms – Hands on

Another addition to the Total War franchise was announced earlier this year, and in June, we could show you the first trailer from the game.

I have to admit that I am not familiar with the latest Total War games, but I know they have been very popular among the fans of the series for a good reason, and after trying Total War: Three Kingdoms I can understand why.

Total War: Three Kingdoms is set in China, around 190 AD and the once strong Han Dynasty is on the verge of collapse. This gives the creators of the game ample opportunities to create spectacular sceneries with beautiful landscapes, soon to be destroyed by war.

In Total War: Three Kingdoms, there are more focus than ever on the families and the generals you bring into battle. The stories every single general has is both well created and deep.

When trying the game, the first thing that struck me was the beauty of the landscape, something I was not allowed to enjoy very long, considering there was an ambush waiting for me. I had the choice to try and defeat the enemy or try to escape the assault.

As with other Total War games, your troops has advantages and disadvantages against certain other troops, but being unfamiliar with the dynamics of this, I should probably have tried to escape instead.

I must say that I was surprised that a game that has not gotten a release date yet, seemed so close to completion when trying it. Had someone told me it was set to launch next month, I would not have reacted at all.

Total War: Three Kingdoms is scheduled to be released Spring 2019
