Turn the tide of war in Thrones of Britannia

A Total War Saga

SEGA and the Creative Assembly have released a new trailer for the upcoming A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia.

In this trailer (above) we see Alfred the Great fighting at the Battle of Edington against Viking invaders. This battle is said to be the starting point for players in Thrones of Britannia.

Thrones of Britannia will see players take on the roles of different faction leaders and take on a series of events, each with branching dilemmas, based on historical events. SEGA has said that each choice the player makes will have consequences, allowing you to re-write history through battles and story events.

Thrones of Britannia is set for release sometime this year (no final date has been set). In the meantime, here’s the press release and a few screenshots to tickle your fancy.

New trailer reveals first playable faction leader, plus new details and victory conditions revealed

Alfred the Great’s victory at the Battle of Edington, in which he stood fast against the Viking invaders and changed the future of the British Isles, marks the player’s historical starting point of 878 AD in the forthcoming game A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia.

See King Alfred alter the course of history in the first in-engine cinematic trailer here:

Like Alfred, each playable faction leader will face a series of unique events and branching dilemmas based on historical events. The choices made will have far-reaching and impactful consequences allowing players to write their own story and re-write history.

Players can attempt to achieve victory in a number of ways: by aggressively expanding through force of arms, by increasing their faction’s fame through construction, advanced technology and influence, and by completing a series of unique objectives based on their chosen faction’s history. A final, ultimate victory condition can also be aimed for, presenting the player with a unique and significant late-game challenge.

Further new details on Thrones of Britannia can be found on the Steam page, here:

I've been a SEGA fan pretty much all my gaming life - though I am also SEGA Nerds' resident Microsoft fanboy (well, every site needs one) and since SEGA went third party, I guess it's now ok to admit that I like Nintendo and Sony too :0) I'm also the Content Manager of the big data company, Digital Contact Ltd, in the UK:
