Hey there!

Welcome to my blog. I talk about strategy games and more. Stay a while and check out my stuff. I'd be happy to hear from you.

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS Releasing on March 7th. Pre-Orders Live Now!

Total War: THREE KINGDOMS Releasing on March 7th. Pre-Orders Live Now!

The next installment in the Total War series, Total War: THREE KINGDOMS has got a March 7th release date. You can pre-order it from Fanatical (you’ll get a Steam key) with an 18% discount.

If you pre-order it now (or even in the last week prior to its release), you’ll receive The Yellow Turban Rebellion DLC, early adopter bonus.

So what the heck is the Yellow Turban Rebellion? Here’s a short description from the Total War blog


Prior to the events of the main game, there was a countrywide social upheaval called the Yellow Turban Rebellion, one of the largest peasant uprisings in Chinese history. The reasons for the rebellion were manifold, but the key notion that drove it was that Emperor Ling of Han was perceived to have lost the Mandate of Heaven.

This DLC includes:

  • Three new playable Warlords; He Yi, Gong Du, and Huang Shao

  • Three new hero classes: Healer, Scholar, and Veteran

  • New character skills focused on the three virtues of Taoism: Frugality, Compassion, and Humility

  • New weapons and armour suitable for the new heroes

The extra hero classes seem like a huge thing to keep away from the vanilla game. Which is why I’m no fan of such DLCs. Even if they say these are extras, the fact that you can get it day one simply highlights that the base game lacks these ‘extras’.

You’ll always feel like you’re getting the less complete version. But anyway I digress. If you want to pre-order Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, you can do it here. It’s going for USD$49.19. If you’re unsure, as I have always said, wait till it is launched. If you want to get it from Steam, here’s the link.

I’ll definitely be playing this and sharing my thoughts to you. So are you going to be buying Total War: THREE KINGDOMS?

Note that, there’s a Total War Sale on Steam with massive discounts on some of the best Total War games. You could get my favourite modern Total War game, Total War: Shogun 2 on a 75% discount! The Warhammer Total War games are not part of this sale though.
