After being delayed earlier this year, Creative Assembly and SEGA’s Total War: Three Kingdoms is finally launching for PC players.
Naturally, SEGA decided to celebrate the game’s imminent launch with a hype trailer. Notably, this trailer is created entirely with in-engine footage, so it shows Total War: Three Kingdoms the way you’ll play it.
This particular trailer focuses on underdog Liu Bei:
A hero rises as a nation crumbles. With Han dynasty blood flowing through his veins and a heart that beats only for the good of his country, Liu Bei stands unwavering against incredible odds. His foes have more money, money troops, more weapons, and more land. But Liu Bei? He has the people…
In just one week, this underdog and his sworn brothers will face off against the cruelty of Dong Zhuo, the might of Sun Jian, and the cunning of Cao Cao for control of Ancient China.
Three Kingdoms is now the most pre-ordered title in Total War history. The pre-order frenzy is likely because Three Kingdoms returns the Total War series to its historical strategy roots. The spectacular recreation of one of the grandest conflicts in world history allows players to take up arms and unite China as one of three major factions.
Total War: Three Kingdoms will launch on May 23rd, 2019 for PC.
