    Total War: Three Kingdoms. They apparently messed their announcement live video.

    Announcing a new Total War era...

    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.
    EDIT: now I see I had posted the same video Noif linked in the OP, my mistake :p

    Gamestar.de dropped the ball, so CA released the video as there was no point in keeping it for tomorrow. I wasn't actually expecting an announcement so early in the year.

    Pretty ignorant when it comes to Chinese ancient history and the dynasty struggles. Can one expect this to be a similar Shogun-esque type of game?

    The Chinese market is simply too juicy to just continue to ignore it. Personally, I can't really get started with the scenario, since its an entirely Chinese civil war without foreign involvement. Also too close to the Rome II and Attila timeframe for my taste.

    Yep, and Hader just posted a FP announcement about it.
    Under patronage of General Brewster of the Imperial House of Hader.

    I hope they don't focus too much on the duels
    They use the formations more extensively than in previous titles; they were quite important to Chinese warfare (and its military treatises) at the time
    And, lastly, do not pursue Lu Bu

    Was hoping for a Renaissance/early Age of Exploration myself and can't say I'm very excited for this but Shogun II did even less for me and I enjoyed that so I'm at least a bit curious.

    So according to this map, Korea and parts of South East Asia should be part of the campaign map, too.

    Thank god it's not another Europe-focused TW. I'm so ing sick of those.
    I realize a big portion of TW's fanbase is from Europe and CA want to appeal to them, but jeez, enough is enough... They practically covered every important era of Europe pre-WW1 (Which is boring trench Warefare than nobody wants... Hopefully)


    I'm glad this exists.
    I just hope they completely ditch the Warscape engine. "Duel" animations are no longer acceptable.

    Waay less factions than Shogun, so expect a more focused experience.

    It's really not CA's fault that Europe/Eurasia was the epicenter for nearly every major historical conflict over the last 2,500 years. I can't see them ever escalating into the 1900s gameplay wise either.

    Personally I'd of loved Empire 2/Victorian TW. The last two historical titles (R2 and ATW) have been fairly similar combat wise to the timeframe of TW:3K (new acronym?) which were quite terrible with the current engine, so I'm little burned out on the melee based combat with Warscape.

    Empire was completely new territory for CA and a very ambitious title that did a number of things well, whilst still being fairly buggy. I think it's gotta be in their pipeline for a proper remake.

    Very disappointing. Melee is fun, but there are fans of gunpowder age also.

    The best we can hope for now is that by 2019/2020 Total War Saga releases a gunpowder title.

    Thank God for the Lordz Modding Collective and NTW3 mod for NTW. Unfortunately ETW is such a broken game there aren't many mods that can improve on it.

    Very sad day, especially when there are no competing companies to give my purchasing dollars too.

    More gunpowder will be adapted by the Saga series, I am not worry about that

    Was hoping for the Renaissance myself, but this is excellent.

    Can we try to be reasonable with this one and not scare everyone new away with boundless amounts of bile until the discussion forums are left a wasteland? For the good of the forum and all.
