To mark St. George’s Day, Sega releases a new cinematic trailer for the upcoming A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia.
The next game in the Total War series takes its signature brand of turn-based strategic warfare to the British Isles, with the Anglo-Saxons, Gaelic clans, and Vikings all vying for control.
The game’s brand new trailer takes a scenic tour of the game’s locations, and teases the arrival of our Nordic friends.
In a press release, Jack Lusted, director of Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, slips on his history teacher blazer to set the stage for the new game:
“It was under Alfred the Great and his immediate successors that a unified Anglo-Saxon kingdom was first forged. As the only major kingdom left standing after the Viking Invasion, it was under the banner of Wessex that the lands the Great Viking Army had conquered, known as the Danelaw, were retaken. The name of this kingdom changed from Wessex to England. The reconquest of the Danelaw led to an adoption of many elements of Viking culture, some of which persist today. A number of towns across Northern England bear Viking names for instance, and there are well over a hundred common English terms that can be traced back to Nordic origins.”
Here’s the new Land of Hope trailer.
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will be released on PC on May 3, 2018. The game is available to pre-order now with a 10% discount from Sega approved retailers. Developer, Creative Assembly, is also donating 25% of the profit from every pre-sale of Thrones of Britannia to the charity, War Child UK.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
