The first entry in Creative assembly's new Total War Saga is here with the release of Thrones of Britannia. Which throws players into a defining moment of the British Isles’ history, and the times following Alfred the Great’s victory over the Viking invaders at the Battle of Edington in 878 AD. Yeah, not an Ork or Dwarf in sight.
Set during a time steeped in bloodlines, succession, royalty, and nobles, Thrones of Britannia offers detailed customisation of governors, and family members, even letting you go so far as to propose marriage between your son and say the daughter of a neighbouring ruler. Plus, ruling over vassals. By narrowing the focus to a single location this has allowed Creative Assembly to really delve deep into the recreation of Britain and Ireland. From the wonderful weather effects to terrain detail, it all plays a part in telling a story. All the little villages scattered throughout the land, separate to cities, add a new strategic layer to military conquest. Where cutting off food supplies to starve a city to sway them to your cause is more than a viable option.
