Today Sega and Creative Assembly released the very first look at the gameplay of their upcoming strategy title Total War: Three Kingdoms.

The video showcases a siege battle in which the legendary general Cao Cao strikes against the forces of the peerless warrior Lu Bu.

Interestingly, we learn that there are different kinds of generals, who also offer the ability to recruit different kinds of troops. The UI also seems to be heavily revised, taking less screen estate, with the unit cards focused in a corner instead of the full bottom.

Another very interesting new element is duels, that will have generals fight each other in single combat until one is dead or retreats.

Speaking of commanders, we see several of them on the field, and they certainly seem to be evolved from the Total War: Warhammer series.

You can check out the video below.

The game has recently been delayed to the spring of 2019¬†and of course, it’ll come exclusively for PC.
