Total War: Three Kingdoms has a new trailer which focuses on the gorgeously layered locales of its Three Kingdoms-inspired China.
The trailer, embedded below, shows off some character models, as well as the meandering hills and misty bamboo forests of rural China. For an RTS game, Three Kingdoms appears to be focusing heavily on the game’s flora and fauna, with a variety of biomes on offer.
Accompanying this journey through China is the story of Zhuge Liang, a legendary general and hero of the Three Kingdoms period. Historically, Liang was a representative of the state of Shu Han who became famous for his military and scholarly prowess. The trailer focuses on a younger Liang who is scouring China for a worthy master.
Based on historical events in 190CE China, Total War: Three Kingdoms is set around the dissolution of the Han Dynasty. Players will be able to assume the role of one of 11 factions and warlords in an attempt to mend the frictions driving China apart.
