LONDON – September 27, 2018 – SEGA® Europe Ltd. and Creative Assembly™ today revealed the Early Adopter Bonus, Collector’s Edition and Limited Edition for Total War™: THREE KINGDOMS.

The next historical title in the award-winning Total War strategy series, and the first to explore ancient China as a theatre of conflict, now has an official release date: 7th March 2019.

Early Adopter Bonus – Yellow Turban Rebellion Warlord Pack:

Gamers purchasing Total War: THREE KINGDOMS through a SEGA approved retailer* before release or in the first week on sale will gain a free Early Adopter bonus: The Yellow Turban Rebellion™.

The Yellow Turban Rebellion is a Warlord Pack DLC, introducing three new playable Warlords for the Grand Campaign, enabling players to lead armies of bandits, zealots and commoners in a crusade to topple the corrupt Han Dynasty and forge a new future for the people of China.

Featuring a thrilling new unit roster of religious and spiritual warriors drawn from the downtrodden masses, this Warlord Pack also introduces three new hero classes – Scholars, Healers, and Veterans – plus new character virtues and skills built around the three tenets of Taoism: Frugality, Compassion, and Humility.

The Total War: THREE KINGDOMS is now available for pre-order from Steam and other retailers worldwide. The game will release for Windows PC on 7th March 2019, and shortly afterwards on macOS and Linux via Feral Interactive.

At release there will be three versions of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS: the digital, limited and collector’s editions.

Collector’s Edition:

The Total War: THREE KINGDOMS Collector’s Edition will be produced in a single, exclusive production run.

Influenced by the modern historicist Chinese art that defines the game’s visuals, the Collector’s Edition ships in a beautifully modern, sleek, and minimalist luxury presentation chest, featuring vibrant red colouring and adorned with a premium gold leaf “Three Kingdoms” Chinese stamp. Contained within is a collection of riches fit for an emperor:

24cm Guan Yu Statue

A weighty resin statue of the legendary hero Guan Yu, a general so talented that in death he ascended to the heavens and earned godly status. His full title and godly remit is:

Guan the Holy Great Deity; God of War Manifesting Benevolence, Bravery and Prestige; Protector of the Country and Defender of the People; Prow and Honest Supporter of Peace and Reconciliation; Promoter of Morality, Loyalty and Righteousness.

People pray to his statues when looking for courage, strength, protection, and wealth. As one of the most iconic characters of Three Kingdoms China, he features as a key character in the game and his statue is certainly worthy of adoration.
