'Total War: Three Kingdoms' Reveals 12th Playable Faction - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 8, 2019 @ 9:33 a.m. PST

Total War: Three Kingdoms is the next major historical title in the Total War strategy series, and the first to explore ancient China.

It is 190CE and China is in turmoil. The Han Dynasty crumbles before the child-emperor, who is a mere puppet for the tyrant Dong Zhuo. The brutal and oppressive regime’s power grows as the empire slips further into anarchy. Yet hope blossoms in the form of three heroes, sworn to brotherhood in the face of calamity. Warlords of great families follow suit, forming a fragile coalition in a bid to challenge Dong Zhuo’s remorseless rule. The future of China will be shaped by their hands, but personal ambition threatens their already crumbling alliance.

Inspired by the beauty and artistic style of the age, Total War: Three Kingdoms breathes life into the heroes of this fascinating period as they struggle to unite China under a single banner.


Through all of history, there are few tyrants as sinister as Dong Zhuo. Revealed today as a surprise 12th playable faction in Total War: Three Kingdoms, players will soon be able to conquer through cruelty, purging the lands of all who would defy his rule.

Greed drives the malevolent Dong Zhuo, and he'll let nothing stand in his way.  Flanked by his adopted son Lü Bu, the greatest warrior in the land, no one can match their might and fury. By spreading fear and intimidation, those who oppose Dong Zhuo will soon bow down. Victory is nearly in his grasp!

Dong Zhuo will appear as a playable faction once you defeat Dong Zhuo in a battle (you don’t need to kill him, just defeat the army he is a part of) or reach the rank of Emperor.

Total War: Three Kingdoms is scheduled for release on March 7, 2019.
