SEGA today announced the new historical strategy game Thrones of Britannia, the first title in the new ‘A Total War Saga’ series from its studio, Creative Assembly. A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will release in 20118, and will combine huge real-time battles with engrossing turn-based campaign, set at a critical flashpoint in history.
Series Director, Mike Simpson, said:
“Our aim with Total War Sagas is to explore key flashpoints at distinct places and times in history. 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. This will complement our broader-scope titles perfectly.”
Here is a small description about the story of Thrones of Britannia:
“The year is 878 AD, the embattled English king Alfred the Great has mounted a heroic defence at the battle of Edington, and blunted the Viking invasion. Chastened – but not yet broken – the Norse warlords have settled across Britain. For the first time in nearly 80 years, the land is in a fragile state of peace.
Throughout this sceptred isle, the kings of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales sense a time of change approaching; a time of opportunity. There will be treaties. There will be war. There will be turns of fortune that become the stuff of legend, in a saga that charts the ascent of one of history’s greatest nations.”
In order to celebrate this announcement, SEGA has also released an announcement trailer for this new Total War Saga game, and you can watch it below!
