Total War: Thrones of Britannia official artwork without logo

The upcoming Total War: Thrones of Britannia is going to be the very first of the Total War Saga series. What this means in gameplay terms is that instead of trying to capture an entire historical era, Thrones of Britannia will offer a much more detailed look at some of the most interesting events that happened in a relatively short time frame. You can expect to see the most detailed Total War map to date, ten playable and diverse factions, a variety of victory conditions that align with your chosen faction's history, as well as a numerous of gameplay improvements.

You can get a good peek at what all of this looks like in-game through the recently posted developer preview. It's a little bit on the lengthy side, but it should give you a pretty darn good idea of what Thrones of Britannia is all about and whether it's the Total War game you're looking for. Have a gander:

If you would like to learn a little bit more about the gameplay and story, you should head on over to Steam. On the other hand, if you're just interested in the release date, Total War: Thrones of Britannia  will be coming to Windows on April 19th, while the Mac and Linux versions will be following shortly after.

Since there is only so much you can learn from a purely gameplay-orientated preview, I'll send you off with the fairly old video detailing five of the newest and most interesting features coming in with Thrones of Britannia. Enjoy!
