Total War: Thrones of Bretonnia close-up screenshot of a battle

The upcoming Total War: Thrones of Britannia is going to be the very first of the Total War Saga series. In other words, 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. What this means in gameplay terms is that you can expect to see the most detailed Total War map to date, ten playable and diverse factions, a variety of victory conditions that will align with each faction's history, as well as numerous improvements to politics, recruitment and research.

Trying to explain all of this through words alone is a bit of a difficult task, so allow me to share with you two of the recently posted preview videos for the Gaelic faction. The first one is a brief in-game cinematic that sets up the story, while the second is a developer-guided campaign playthrough that will give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from Thrones of Britannia in general. Have a gander:

If you prefer the written word, however, you can learn more about Thrones of Britannia and some of its factions by heading over to Steam. As for 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.

And as a final note, I'll leave you with one of the earlier developer videos discussing some of the new features coming in with Thrones of Britannia. Enjoy!
