Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will be the first game in Sega and Creative Assembly’s Total War spin-off series, Total War Saga.
The game is set in 878 AD following the Viking Invasion of Britain. “The Norse warlords are firmly established,” the developer writes, “but the ambitious kings of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales have aspirations of their own – not least the great King Alfred of Wessex.”
According to Creative Assembly, Thrones of Britannia will feature 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,” series director Mike Simpson said. “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.”
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is scheduled to launch for PC in 2018.
