Thrones of Britannia is the new game in the Total War series, this game will unfold in the same historic era as the game Medieval: Total War Viking Invasion, that was released in 2003.

Vikingen vs Angelsaksen in Thrones of Britannia
The first game in the Total War Saga will be based on a less defining moment in history, the invasion of the Vikings on the British isles on 878 b.c. In this game it is all about the battles between Vikings on one side, and Anglo-Saxon kings on the other. There are new factions to play as, among which there are the Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, and a variety of Scottish clans; this means that there are enough factions to choose from, and enough gameplay elements that keep this game cool and fresh for a long time.

According to the developers of the map of Thrones of Britannia, the map of this particular game is the greatest that they have ever developed. The map of Thrones of Britannia is almost 23 times as big as the map of Total War Atilla, one of the predecessors of Thrones of Britannia that also had the United Kingdom as its setting. “You can see how this game gave us the opportunity to design the coastal lines with great detail, especially when we designed the western isles of Scotland”, stated the development team.
