A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is a new historical strategy game in the A Total War Saga series.

The year is 878 AD, the embattled English king Alfred the Great has mounted a heroic defence at the battle of Edington, and the Viking Invasion of Britain is over. The Norse warlords are firmly established, but the ambitious kings of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales have aspirations of their own – not least the great King Alfred of Wessex. Britannia is a furnace of possibilities, from which the template for modern Britain will be forged, across the most detailed Total War campaign map ever made.

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.

A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britanniawill be available as a digital download or as a Limited Edition boxed product available in some European territories and Australia. The Limited Edition comes in an embossed Steelbook inspired by ornately decorated Anglo Saxon helmets of the period, such as the famously reconstructed Sutton Hoo. Alongside the game discs, the Limited Edition includes a double-sided poster featuring a detailed campaign map, plus a set of collectable art cards celebrating five of the most prominent in-game faction leaders. The Limited Edition will be available to pre-order from participating local retailers very soon.

A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is available to pre-order digitally from SEGA approved digital retailers with a 10% discount from today until April 19. The Limited Edition will be available to pre-order from participating local retailers very soon. Additionally, Creative Assembly will donate 25% of their profit from every pre-sale of Thrones of Britannia from now until launch, to War Child UK.

For Thrones we’ve updated our minimum specs to reflect the technological improvements made since Total War: ATTILA was released.
