Creative Assembly have announced the release date of Total War: Three Kingdom‘s next DLC.
A World Betrayed is set two years after the death of Dong Zhuo, and focuses primarily on Lü Bu and Sun Ce. Both factions feature unique mechanics, legendary heroes, events, and units.
The DLC will also expand upon the South with new factions and events. You can find the trailer for the DLC below.
You can find an abridged rundown of the new content (via Steam) below:
A World Betrayed portrays a seminal moment in the history of the Three Kingdoms. Many of the iconic warlords of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS have now passed on, a catalyst that has spurred a new generation of warlords into making a play for their own dynasties.
As well as adding in more factions to the South, A World Betrayed includes:
- Two new factions led by fan favourites Lü Bu and Sun Ce
- 13 playable factions
- New unique battlefield units
- New faction mechanics
- New events and story missions
- New legendary characters
- New story events
- A brand-new 194 CE start date
All sons are born in the shadow of their fathers. It’s how they move beyond that defines them.
The year is 194CE and Dong Zhuo, the seemingly unstoppable tyrant, has been dead for two years. But his death blow did not come from an enemy hand; the blade belonged to Lü Bu, his adoptive son.
Since Dong Zhuo’s death, Lü Bu has flirted with a number of allegiances, swiftly falling in (and out) with the warlords he finds around him. Having found further opportunities by taking Cao Cao’s land while he was away avenging the death of his father, he now flees from Cao Cao and his allies, seeking further means to prove his battle prowess and defeat the supposed heroes of China.
Meanwhile in the South, Sun Ce mourns his own father’s death, Sun Jian. Vowing to defend his legacy, he seeks expansion into the South, but can he keep his people safe and prove his worth beyond his father’s legacy?
With the world in turmoil, it’s up to you to carve out a path for your hero, and lay waste to anyone that stands in your way.
