As a stand-alone campaign pack for the excellentTotal War: Three Kingdoms, Eight Princes, presses the fast-forward or chapter skip button 100 years later with a story that takes place in the aftermath of the Three Kingdoms setting. As per its namesake it introduces eight new playable princes each with their own play-styles and unique buildings.
The year is 291 CE, and a generation has passed since the tumultuous events of the Three Kingdoms period began. Despite the tripartite division of power which brought the conflict to a stalemate, and the brief unification of the kingdoms under the Jin dynasty, civil war is no more than a heartbeat away.
For the Jin is a dynasty divided. Its many ruling princes are hungry for greater power, each with ambitions – and methods – of their own. Eight stand above all others… will they rally to their emperor and empress? Or carve a legacy for themselves that will echo through the ages?
