Creative Assembly announces new Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia spin-off
Developer Creative Assembly recently announced their new spinoff title, Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia. After a string of releases right after Total War: Warhammer II together with the upcoming Empire Divided DLC for Rome II, Total War Saga will bring players back to the British Isles.
This standalone game will put players into a pivotal point in history where there will be many different possible outcomes, and like any other Total War games, it will offer the same turn-based campaign strategy and the action-packed real-time battles. The developers pointed out that Shogun II Fall of the Samurai standalone is an excellent example of the upcoming game in terms of scale.
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will feature ten playable factions, new highly detailed map and new mechanics. Familiar elements will be brought across from Total War: Attila but Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will have its own unique look and feel. Players will be starting the game in the year 878AD, right after the invasion of the Great Heathen Army, until up to around 1066. After 80 years of fragile peace, the kings of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales sense a time of opportunity, treaties and war until one King rules them all.
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will be released on the Windows PC in 2018.
