Sega has unveiled the first glimpse of Total War: Three Kingdoms gameplay for the world to see, along with a press release. This early sneak peek comes in the form of a five and a half minute long video posted on YouTube. The year is 199 CE and the Three Kingdoms era is well under way at this point. While Lü Bu finds himself isolated in Xiapi, the legendary commander Cao Cao senses it’s time to make his move. He takes the opportunity and leads his army to strike and take down his foe before he can become too powerful.
The sneak peek video starts off with a bit of back story, and then proceeds to take viewers through a single battle. The narrator of the video walks us through some strategy, while showing off some units and formations. As the assault begins, the wall takes serious damage. Lu Bu is still inside, waiting for a worthy opponent. There are unique items that you can give to your generals, such as Lü Bu’s horse and weapon. If you can slay him, you can loot these items for yourself. Different generals can recruit different types of units, and they also have different advantages and disadvantages in a given situation.
There’s plenty more, but without further ado, here is the sneak peek video for your viewing pleasure:
Beyond this sneak peek video, you’ll have to wait for them to show off more at E3 next week!
