Creative Assembly announces Thrones of Britannia

Total War is getting a Viking-inspired spin-off next year The first Total War Saga is Thrones of Britannia, set in Britain after the 878 AD Viking Invasion

The franchise started in 2000 with Total War: Shogun.

It is 878 AD, and the Viking Invasion of Britain is over.

SEGA has officially announced the first entry in its Total War spin-off series, which pits the Vikings against Great Britain. However, the ambitious kings of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales have aspirations of their own, and declare war against the Norse warlords once again.

"Our aim with Total War Sagas is to explore key flashpoints at distinct places and times in history". In an FAQ from Creative Assembly from earlier in the year, they describe a Total War Saga game being bigger than a previous game's Campaign Pack while also not being quite different enough to be a new era-spanning Total War game.

First, let's talk about the game itself. Thrones of Britannia: A Total War Saga is a Total War title that takes place in the British Isles around 878AD. "This will complement our broader-scope titles perfectly".

With that said, Thrones of Britannia will be based on the Total War: Atilla engine, but is standalone, not requiring Atilla to run the game. Games in the series would focus on crucial points in history rather than entire historical eras.

We'll be confirming all ten of the playable factions over the coming months but for now we can tell you that you'll be able to play as Anglo-Saxons, Viking settlers and certain Gaelic clans.

According to the press release, this will be the most detailed Total War campaign map ever made.
