SEGA has announced that Total War: Three Kingdoms just became the fastest-selling title in Creative Assembly’s acclaimed strategy franchise, topping one million copies sold in its first week. This incredible milestone comes on the heels of a record-breaking release that smashed concurrent player numbers for any strategy title on Steam, making it the platform’s biggest launch of 2019 to date.
Rob Bartholomew, Chief Product Officer, said:
“We knew we had something special with Three Kingdoms but the response from players, old and new, has exceeded all expectations. We’re seeing a lot of ‘best Total War ever’ comments out there. We’re very proud.”
Total War: Three Kingdoms immerses players in the rich tapestry of Ancient China as powerful warlords, bandits, and diplomats vie for the title of Emperor. The game has been celebrated for its revolutionary new diplomacy and social systems, bringing new depth and emergent storytelling to Total War in a way players haven’t seen before.
As the press release reads, this marks the first time Total War has travelled to China, breathing life into the lush landscapes, vibrant art, and dynamic sounds of 190CE. With separate game modes dedicated to the historical records of the era and the romantic legends that have captivated audiences for centuries, Total War: Three Kingdoms is a best-in-class recreation of one of the most compelling periods of global history.
