About This Game

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS is the first in the multi award-winning strategy series to recreate epic conflict across ancient China. Combining a gripping turn-based campaign game of empire-building, statecraft and conquest with stunning real-time battles, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS redefines the series in an age of heroes and legends.

China in 190CE

Welcome to a new era of legendary conquest.

This beautiful but fractured land calls out for a new emperor and a new way of life. Unite China under your rule, forge the next great dynasty, and build a legacy that will last through the ages.
Choose from a cast of 12 legendary Warlords and conquer the realm. Recruit heroic characters to aide your cause and dominate your enemies on military, technological, political, and economic fronts.

Will you build powerful friendships, form brotherly alliances, and earn the respect of your many foes? Or would you rather commit acts of treachery, inflict heart-wrenching betrayals, and become a master of grand political intrigue?

Your legend is yet to be written, but one thing is certain: glorious conquest awaits.


Discover Three Kingdoms China, a land of breath-taking natural beauty. Battle across lush subtropics, arid deserts and snow-capped mountains. Marvel at legendary landmarks like the Great Wall of China and the Yangtze River. Explore the length and breadth of ancient China as you restore harmony to its embattled landscape.


Forge a new empire as one of 12 legendary Warlords drawn from China’s celebrated historical epic, the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Peerless commanders, powerful warriors and eminent statesmen, these characters each have a unique playstyle and objectives. Recruit an epic supporting cast of heroes to command your armies, govern your provinces and strengthen your growing empire. Characters are the beating heart of the game, and China’s very future will be shaped by its champions.


Modelled on Guanxi, the Chinese concept of dynamic inter-relationships, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS takes a paradigm-shifting approach to character agency, with iconic, larger-than-life heroes and their relationships defining the future of ancient China. Each of these characters is brought to life with their own unique personality, motivations, and likes/dislikes. They also form their own deep relationships with each other, both positive and negative, that shape how your story plays out.


With stunning visuals and flamboyant Wushu combat, THREE KINGDOMS is the art of war. With beautiful UI, vibrant vistas and authentic Chinese-inspired artwork, this reimagining of ancient China is a visual feast.


The turn-based campaign and real-time battles of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS are more interconnected than ever before. Actions in battle now have much greater consequences, affecting your Heroes’ relationship towards you, as well as the friendships and rivalries they develop with other characters. In a world where powerful allies are one of the keys to success, this adds a brand-new element to how victory is achieved.

A Total War game with great optomization. I never thought i’d see the day.

I’m enjoying the game so far but the combat animations are pretty disappointing compared to Shogun 2 and Rome 2’s sync 1v1 animations. Just a lot of air stabbing and when arrows hit individuals they don’t fall, just random individuals in the unit will randomly drop and I’m the one to always zoom into battles to watch the intense fights, so to see no 1v1 animations again it’s a bit of a let down. I know that the 1v1s caused some issues with the AI just standing and watching but I personally prefer that much more than a simple slash and the enemy falling down because It makes it feel more like a realistic setting. Also, the duels can get pretty repetitive after a few times. Everything else seems like an improvement so if you don’t mind that then you should love this game. The campaign map is definitely a jump in the right direction which I much prefer over previous titles. Not going to give this game a bad review based solely on the combat animations but would like to see them introduced again in the future. Thanks for reading 🙂

This is what we’ve been asking for years since Shogun:TW and it’s worth waiting for. You know what else we’ve been asking for years? Medieval 3. And TW: LotR would be awesome.

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS is the latest entry in the famous Total War series. This time we’ll participate in the destiny of Ancient China.

I’ve played the first three Total War games (Shogun, Medieval and Rome) for about 1000 hours and I spent around 150-200 hours in several more (Medieval II, Empire, Napoleon, Shogun 2 and Rome II). But I haven’t played the latest ones, so I can’t tell you if the game has changed a lot since Thrones of Britannia (boring) and Warhammers (not my cup of tea).

Also, I’m one of those people who use Auto-resolve a lot – the proud owner of The Bronze Armchair of Comfort (Win any campaign by auto-resolving battles) achievement from Napoleon. That’s why I can’t say a lot about changes in RTS battles as this part of the game is not my favourite, but… I really liked the Romance mode where your generals have more impact on battles compared to the Classic one – it’s refreshing and it’s the main reason I played RTS battles more often in Three Kingdoms.

So, speaking about the good features:
+ As I mentioned before, the Romance mode is cool.
+ The game is really well-polished. I haven’t seen a single bug during almost 20 hours of my gameplay.
+ Tutorials are very informative and pieces of advice are useful. The interface is almost perfect for such a complex strategy game (however, at some point I got a feeling that some of this ‘perfection’ was sacrificed for better visuals).
+ Diplomacy is way better than it was before, at least judging from my experience. Maybe there are some balance flaws, but you’ll need dozens of hours to discover them. In my opinion, Diplomacy is one of the reasons why you’d want to replay the main campaign a few more times.
+ An interesting and long campaign with good replay values.
+ Nice visuals on the global map; in battles they are pretty much the same as before. Beautiful artwork.

Still, I have some doubts about one thing:
+- A couple of gameplay aspects are overcomplicated for my taste. And they have only minor impact on the gameplay (items and some character interactions, for example).

THREE KINGDOMS is a massive chapter in the Total War franchise and it will be of particular interest to those who like the Ancient China setting.
It’s not a revolutionary game, though, – it’s just a really good Total War title. 9/10

After the failure of Britannia I was worried that 3K would be another failure but it proved to be a solid game with many new or returning features in the series that set the level of the title high. This game makes you care about your characters and how you level them up, the diplomacy received a buff that was sooooooooo much needed and tech tree and how it interact with the world is a nice new optic. Families are back (from day one not year 3) and the game it self follows a solid difficult campaign with the plus that all factions’ play style is different. Few cons of course as some crashes (autosaves end of turn so you do not loose anything except of course a battle maybe but they range from 10-20 minutes anyway). Also very good rework on the autofire of ranged units.

First impressions are absurdly positive. I’m really impressed with this one. There’s so much stuff in this game, and it’s all so well presented and well put together.

This really feels like a whole new level of grand strategy games, setting the bar higher than ever.

My brothers last dying wish, to play 3 Kingdoms
Three Kingdoms
I’ve sent email, reached out to influencers I know, and am using social media to try and get this done.

My little brother was diagnosed with leukemia late last year. He was winning the battle, and just last week we were getting ready for him to have a bone marrow transfusion. Unfortunately this past weekend, the cancer came back with a vengeance, and doctors don’t think he will last long.

One of his wishes/goals is to play Total War: Three Kingdoms before he dies. With the doctors not thinking he will survive long, the 24th release date may be to late.

Can anyone help me get this to the developers/publishers to see this post?

Edit 1: For anyone in doubt, I understand why you would feel this way. Here is a link of him currently in the ICU

Edit 2: OMG, u/DogbertCA on here and Grace on twitter have made one kid extremely happy. When I told him the good news, he cried, and couldn’t believe this was happening. When I told him who sent it, he was so shocked. I then immediately got kicked out of the room to go home and download it since the internet at the hospital sucks. I should be back there in a hour and he cant wait to play!

He wants to say his thanks to all of you for your support, it means a lot. And from me, I don’t know much about this game, just hear him always talking about it. To see the outpouring of support from all of you is truly touching. It means a ton to me and my family, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Edit 3: The response from all of you is incredible. The second I got back to his room he was ready to get playing, and was so excited by the intro and being able to play. Not sure what I can and can’t post so I took a picture of him at the logo screen and one of us. He taught me what we had to do, and we won the first battle (thanks to him)! You guys are all amazing! I will myself purchase the game when it comes out, so that I’ll be able to cherish this moment forever. Also I will be printing out all of your comments for him. I read some to him and the smiles and laughs he got was tremendous. So again, thank you, all of you!

Him and I –

Edit 4: The response from all of you is amazing. We’ve been reading the comments to him and he lights up talking about it. A couple people have asked, I won’t give our exact location, but we’re in Tampa, FL. Watching the intro video he was amazed and out gorgeous it was. He went in to detail telling me about the different people we could choose from, etc. It was a student trains teacher moment. I promise I will reply to each and everyone of you, and this thread will always be something I come to!

Edit 5: A little while ago, on 05/19/2019, just after midnight, Robbie passed away. I thank you all so much for everything these past 3 days, and the fact he was able to play his favorite game will always mean so much to me! Thank you!!!"


I Hope that this review helps to keep the memory of his brother Robbie alive and show that even during the
toughest times even the smallest acts of kindness can make a huge difference in the lives of others.

My wish is that Creative Assembly makes a dlc that adds Robbie into the game, maybe as a general or officer.
I know I will buy it and it would be awesome if the funds from said DLC went to cancer research.

One of the best Novel in the history of mankind combined with one of the greatest series in gaming history. This title is a serious candidate for the best Total War, surpassing Shogun 2 by his depth and level of details.

What else do you want?


Posted: May 23
-First off, THE GAME OPTIMIZATION IS GREAT!! Unlike warhammer 1&2, the load times is much faster (~15-20 seconds) compare to warhammer ( ~ 1 minute or more). No SSD NEEDED!

-Graphic: Very nice, the campaign map is beautiful. Too bad that aside from legendary heroes, there is so few unique portraits for other characters ( Hoping for future DLCs). If you like grittier visual, then select record option in the graphic menu.

-Sound: There is chinese dub in the game and they sound great, the music is nice too.

-Gameplay: Messing around the game a bit and there are a few things to note:
+ Pros: Much better diplomacy , many new systems like espionage or relationships make the game more interesting and complex. The abilities to choose Romance or Record mode ( more realistic) is a nice touch.

+Cons: New UI looks nice but needs time to get used to, the UI for settlement development seem cluttered ( I prefer the Rome, warhammer style)

+Mixed: AI campaign is good but sometime they really stupid ( Yuan Shao keep falling for my ambushes every single time LOL) Can’t say much about battle AI either.

Overall, the game left a very good impression to me. And I’m excited for future improvement of the game.
