Just announced by SEGA Europe is Thrones of Britannia, the first title in the new A Total War Saga series from its studio, Creative Assembly.
A historical strategy game, it takes place in 878 AD after the conclusion of the Norse invasion in Britain. The Norse warlords may be firmly established, but the ambitious kings of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales have other plans. Creative Assembly says Britannia is bursting with possibilities and features the most detailed Total War campaign map ever made.
"Our aim with Total War Sagas is to explore key flashpoints at distinct places and times in history", said Series Director, Mike Simpson. "Unlike our era-spanning titles, we're putting defined geographical areas under the microscope, building super-detailed campaign maps with a strong cultural focus and flavor that players can dive into. This will complement our broader-scope titles perfectly".
A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will be available for PC in 2018.
