New Total War: Three Kingdoms DLC Announced, The Eight Princes

A few short weeks after the obligatory Reign of Blood DLC, Sega and Creative Assembly have announced, with a rather dramatic bit of cinema, their first major expansion for the Three Kingdoms, the Eight Princes.

Launching August 8th, the Eight Princes is set 100 years after the end of the Three Kingdoms storyline and features eight new playable characters, all with their playstyles. The Eight Princes has a wealth of new features: new buildings, new assignments, court options, and elite units. There’s a new faction advancement system, noble support, and a wealth, spirit, might, and mind alignment system that will affect the events of your game.

The Total War series has always been known for releasing great DLC, but the Eight Princes appears to be stepping up the game. There’s a lot here, and it’s only been 2 and a half months since the game’s release.
