First up, wow. The campaign map in Total War: Three Kingdoms looks incredible, with mountain and river detail that sells the romantic vision and beauty of ancient China. Secondly the battle we see here is fairly impressive too as it showcases a number of cinematic flourishes from being ambushed, overrun, and using the iconic generals in one-on-one duels.
Check it out.
The Ambush of Sun Ren sees the player commanding the children of Sun Jian and their retinues, defending against waves of incoming heroes and warriors in a desperate bid for survival. Spectacular visuals and lighting bring this misty, moon-washed valley to life, as floating lanterns paint the scene and trees burst into flames, casting dynamic shadows as thousands of troops clash.
Visually the night-time effects look wonderful, as does the interplay with fire and trees and the overall faster movement animation seen in the units. The above gameplay demo will be at Gamescom next week, with Total War: Three Kingdoms on track for release in the first-half of 2019.
