Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia announced for 2018

14 November 2017

The franchise started in 2000 with Total War: Shogun. Only a victory by the Mercian King Alfred the Great at the Battle of Edington prevented the Vikings from completely conquering the island.

Thrones of Britannia will be the first installment in the previously announced Total War spin-off saga.

Thrones of Britannia will feature the same tactical, turn-based strategy gameplay that the Total War series is known for.

And there was a time, a lot later in life than I should probably admit, that I would make Stove Top just because. There are reports that Stove Top will donate $10,000 of the proceeds to a charity called Feeding America .

"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 flavour that players can dive into", says series director Mike Simpson. The first game in this interesting looking spin-off series is yet to be priced, or receive a release date other than "2018", so it looks like strategy fans have plenty of time to get that battle-axe sharpened. "They'll follow-on from previous Total War games and inhabit the same time-period, or at the very least relate to it". There will likely be a faction of Norse warlords, but the details have yet to be confirmed. "This will complement our broader-scope titles perfectly". Meanwhile, you can check out the announcement trailer below and wishlist the game on Steam. However more war is brewing as the Scots, the Irish, the Anglo-Saxons, and the Vikings all ready to begin the fight once again.

According to the press release, this will be the most detailed Total War campaign map ever made.
