Between the Han and Jin dynasties, China would find itself in a swirl of conflict the likes of which the country had never seen before. The tale of the dominant Wei, Shu, and Wu states has been written in novels, made into television dramas and big blockbuster movies, and has been the focus of some of the longest running video game series in history. The Yellow Turban Rebellion and the resulting Romance of the Three Kingdoms gets immortalized in yet another way this week, with its own entry into the Total War franchise.
The Total War series has spent almost the last 20 years defining and redefining what it means to be a strategy game. With a blend of real-time and turn-based approaches, and an attention to size and scope like no other franchise can achieve, the Total War series also is committed to delivering campaigns with a sharp focus on real world history. Developers Creative Assembly are looking to redefine the genre and their blockbuster franchise yet again with Total War Saga.
