Sega and Creative Assembly have announced their first title in the Total War Saga series. The aptly named Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, sees the player travel back in time to Britain in 878 AD. 

Creative Assembly are saying that you can expect “the most detailed Total War campaign map ever made.” No gameplay has been released as of yet but being a Total War, i’m sure we can imagine what it will entail. 

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will be released some time in 2018.

Here’s the official set up:-

“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.

“Kings will rise. One will rule.”
