Since Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is set in 9th century Britain, it would make sense for the warfare style to reflect that of the era.  Creative Assembly, the developers of the game, felt this way too.  This week, Total War’s YouTube channel released a video featuring some of the changes players can expect to see on the battlefield with a couple focusing on those that keep it faithful to its time period.

The changes highlighted in the video include shield based warfare and cavalry combat to reflect the game era’s battle style.  In addition, critical hits are now available during battle for both melee and missile attacks. Godmode makes a return, and there have been changes to settlements as well.

It was recently announced that the release date of Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will be pushed back to May 3rd.  The game will be available for PC.

You can check out the video explaining each of the changes listed in battle below.  You can also check out a couple of cinematic trailers flaunting two kingdoms, Gaelic and Northymbre, that are featured in the game.
