Creative Assembly has just announced the release of Total War: Three Kingdoms – Mandate of Heaven. The title offering a new story campaign and many other new products will be available in mid-January.
Developers from the British Creative Assembly studio have just announced Total War: Three Kingdoms – Mandate of Heaven. This is the third and, according to the developers, the largest addition to the Total War: Three Kingdoms strategy released in May and extremely well received, which takes place in China, in the epoch of the Three Kingdoms, dating from 184-265 AD. DLC will be on sale on January 16 next year. The previews were also accompanied by a movie trailer and a ten-minute record of the game with the authors’ commentary.
DLC offers players a completely new story campaign, starting in 182. It allows us to start playing just before the outbreak of the Yellow Turban Uprising, which marked the beginning of the end of the Han Empire and ultimately led to the division of the country into three competing kingdoms. The scenario in which we can direct the forces of rebels and imperial loyalists offers fresh gameplay mechanics, events and missions, further previously absent historical characters and six new playable leaders (including Emperor Liang).
In total, forty unseen types of units will be waiting for us on the battlefield. In addition, the rebels will have new resources (zeal and fervour) that are unique to them, affecting the course of the conflict and the strength of the troops. An additional attraction is the ability to direct legendary heroes of the era, such as Cao Cao or Liu Bei, at the beginning of their military career. Total War: Three Kingdoms – Mandate of Heaven is also a number of corrections and changes in the basic version of the game. Some of them will also be available to those who choose not to buy the DLC.
