Total War: Three Kingdom introduces Cao Cao to the battle


Delayed to Spring 2019

Cao Cao is a central figure in The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, so I'd be seriously surprised if anyone didn't expect him to show up in Creative Assembly's upcoming Total War: Three Kingdoms. In case you had your doubts, though, this new trailer has introduced the general with an in-engine cinematic trailer. The graphics are solid enough for a strategy game, but you just cannot beat that art style. This setting looks wonderful for Total War's massive scale battles.

Sadly, we won't be getting our hands on the game until Spring 2019 at the earliest. While originally expected to launch in the fall, Total War: Three Kingdoms has suffered a delay according to its Steam storefront page. I would rather Sega and Creative Assembly take their time in making sure this is the best possible game instead of incurring the wrath of Lu Bu. That would be a battle they could never win.
