Sega has tried to wash over a delay for Total War: Three Kingdoms by announcing alongside the first in-engine cinematic trailer, but delayed it certainly is. Total War: Three Kingdoms was pegged for Fall 2018 but now it’s not going to be ready until Spring 2019.

It’s not really a delay worth getting up in arms about, particularly when Creative Assembly is so clearly in need of dramatically revamping the Total War series. The longer they take, the better the game. Hopefully.

Anyway, alongside the delay we also get the new trailer, of course. It’s a story trailer about Cao Cao, a strategic mastermind who is plotting to become the one true ruler of China. He looks like a thoughtful chap, and more into playing Go than warring, to be honest, but he’s a rather ruthless fan of the divide and conquer tactics.

Alongside the trailer, Creative Assembly has also announced series-first new mode for total War: Three Kingdoms. By default, it will feature romanticized version of 2nd to 3rd century China, sort of like a rose-tinted spectacles version. The generals will have preternatural fighting abilities and can take on hundreds of enemy troops single-handedly, carving through the battlefield like they’ve just arrived from Dynasty Warriors.

Should all that sound a little fanciful to you though, Total War: Three Kingdoms will have a Classic Mode that strips all of this out and adds a more ground, historically authentic experience.

Total War: Three Kingdoms is coming to PC in Spring 2019.
