Here’s a rundown on the big new expansion:

The year is 291 CE, and the Jin Dynasty is divided. A generation has passed since the tumultuous events of the Three Kingdoms period began. Despite the brief unification of the kingdoms under the Jin dynasty, civil war was never more than a heartbeat away. Its many ruling princes are hungry for power, each with self-serving ambitions and views of their own. Will you stand by the emperor, or will you carve out a legacy that will echo through the ages?

Playable in both Records and Romance mode, the Eight Princes Chapter Pack is a new standalone campaign which takes place in the immediate aftermath of the THREE KINGDOMS storyline. This pack introduces eight legendary princes to Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, each with their own unique traits, playstyles, and units such as the revered heavy cataphract cavalry, mounted archers, and imperial guardsmen.

The Eight Princes Chapter Pack is set 100 years after the events of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, and features a new cast of playable factions led by the foremost princes of the Jin Dynasty. These Eight Princes offer feature substantially different campaign mechanics, focussing their playstyles in fascinating and unique ways
