Brushing aside the recent controversy, Creative Assembly has forged onwards and announced the Total War: Three Kingdoms release date. The historic grand strategy game set within ancient China will be releasing worldwide on March 7th, 2019.

In Total War: Three Kingdoms the Han Dynasty has fallen, and the empire has fallen into anarchy. A tyrant warlord, known as Dong Zhuo, currently reigns supreme, yet an alliance of China's great families is planning to form a coalition in order to challenge his rule.

After a tepid reception to Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, it sounds as if CA is throwing a lot of weight behind its first Total War game to be set within a brand new historical since Total War: Attila back in 2015.

Naturally, there will be several different versions of Total War: Three Kingdoms. There’ll be the standard edition that also comes with The Yellow Turban Rebellion WarLord Pack DLC for those who buy the game within its first week on sale. This pack includes three new playable Warlords for the Grand Campaign, as well as Scholars, Healers, and Veterans hero classes.

The next stage up is the Total War: Three Kingdoms Limited Edition which includes a special case, a double-sided map, and a Warlord poster.

Finally, for those with cash to spare, there’s the Total War: Three Kingdoms Collector’s Edition. This is the big daddy, containing a 24cm Guan Yu statue, an exclusive artbook, along with all of the above goodies.

Oh, and before I forget, here’s a brand spanking new trailer too:

There’s no word just yet on whether Total War: Three Kingdoms will contain vaginas, but we will update you the moment we hear anything just in case this affects your pre-order.

Total War: Three Kingdoms is stepping onto the battlefield on March 7th, 2019.

I don't like it when a game is not even close to being out and DLCs are already announced before-hand, like a modern day robbery when the thief courteously ask you to hand-over your wallet before even letting you know if you can walk away from it unscathed.

It's the CA way. It was the same with Warhammer and they will keep doing it as long as people buy their product.

And to think Rome and Medieval II were such good-valued games (even without DLC/expansion), and the expansion packs were packed with contents and goodness (especially Kingdoms expansion)

Apparently, it will feature a historical and non-historical game mode. I figured CA was a bit stuck in the fantasy realm when I saw the generals-dueling-or-whatever feature (which, historically, is among the dumbest things imaginable) so, for now, best we can do is wait and see whether they will manage to please both the fantasy and historical fan bases.
