Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia launches April 19


It's a bit cheaper than normal

If you've somehow had your fill of Lizardmen and Dark Elves, Creative Assembly's next Total War game is more grounded -- and it's not far off. Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, which revolves around the Anglo-Saxons, Gaelic clans, Welsh tribes, and Viking settlers in 878 AD, releases April 19 on PC.

It's a more focused game that hones in on a "critical moment in history" (hence the new "Total War Saga" titling), and that means a reduced price compared to the full-fledged installments. Thrones of Britannia will run $40. Pre-ordering will knock 10 percent off that price and Creative Assembly has pledged to donate 25 percent of its profits from pre-sales to the charity War Child UK.

As shown in this developer interview, the stylized 2D intro movies for the factions look great.

The studio is also planning a physical limited edition and has shared the system specs.
