Looks like the next big historical TW will be ancient China, as many guessed.

I know there will be some who are very excited about this, but I'm not one of them.

...I could be persuaded to take a second look if there will be bad lip dubbing in cutscenes and special Bruce Lee DLC.

I might have preferred something from the late rennaissance to 'age of reason' period, or another medieval version, first. 

However, I still have doubts as to whether they can create a good Total War in which most units have firearms and the battle mechanics & AI support the way they were used historically. 

Flashbacks to those old Empire and Napoleon battles where the units still kept trying to behave like they were in Rome or Medieval, racing into melee at 50mph and every opportunity.  :-\  SOW they were not.


I would pick up a TW Three Kingdoms at some point, though.  Probably not out of the gate, unless they happened to catch me desperate for a new fix at the time.

i think you may be one the guys in disagreement, and if its not you apologies, but CA and Total War did all it ever could for me with Warhammer - without it id be pissed this new one wasnt medieval 3 but because it exists i can manage until medieval 3, if ever

i only have 1, but 2 will be the natural next step when the combined maps game is fully fixed if not already

I vaguely remember that too - at least the title immediately hit me as something I watched

This one looks like a Pooh Pooh Platter right now. The trailer looks more like Kung Fu than Total War. 190 CE? What'll they be fighting with stone knives and Mammoth tusks? Still it is FINALLY something China. Hope it's not a 'shamfurl dispray'.  ;D
