Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is finally out on Steam, and the developers have celebrated the occasion by releasing a special Kings Will Rise video that you can find above.
The events of the game take place in 878 AD right after the Viking Invasion of Britain. The Norse Warlords firmly grasp their seats, but the kings of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales have ambitions of their own.
Check out our review in progress to learn more about the game.
Thrones of Britannia brings with it many new elements to the table, and shakes up some of the older mechanics to try new things as well. Instantly returning players to the series will notice that unit upgrades are no longer dictated by the buildings you own, but rather the technology you research. And that technology isn’t readily available either – you have to complete some sort of objective in order to have access to the knowledge that technology can provide. It makes for some interesting moments in the game, and really forces you to plan out how you want your kingdom to flourish. Do you want to be militaristic and drive home the need for military techs, or would you rather see home and hearth grow, while maintaining influence over your nobles through leadership traits? The choice is yours.
