Creative Assembly and Sega have revealed a new trailer for Total War: Three Kingdoms which is a breathtaking cinematic following the legendary hero Zhuge Liang as he wanders ancient China searching for a worthy master. The absolutely stunning visuals are even more impressive, considering the trailer was shot in-engine, so the cinematic showcases exactly how good Three Kingdoms can look on your PC.
Three Kingdoms is the next historical entry in the Total War series and is set in one of the more popular eras of Chinese history. After all, the Three Kingdoms era has been the subject of numerous movies, tv shows, books, and even a few other strategy games like Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Dynasty Warriors.
You can find some information on the historical background in the trailer description:
This realm of breath-taking natural beauty lies fractured, torn asunder by power-hungry warlords each vying for control of China's future. Lush subtropics, iconic mountains drenched in mist, and tranquil golden rivers serve as the backdrop for the bloodiest period in ancient Chinese history.
Zhuge Liang, an incredibly talented strategist, is willing only to serve an honourable master. In this age of boundless greed, hope of finding someone worthy seems lost. Until he meets the kind and virtuous man of the people, Liu Bei. Together, they will fight to bring peace to China and restore harmony to its embattled landscape.
Will you be worthy enough for Zhuge Liang to join your cause?
Total War: Three Kingdoms will launch March 7th, 2019. You can check out the newest trailer below.
