Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia announced for 2018

Total War is getting a Viking-inspired spin-off next year

SEGA has officially announced the first entry in its Total War spin-off series, which pits the Vikings against Great Britain.

The year is 878 AD, the embattled English king Alfred the Great has mounted a heroic defence at the battle of Edington, and blunted the Viking invasion. However, the ambitious kings of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales have aspirations of their own, and declare war against the Norse warlords once again. There's no set end-date, though the in-game content of Thrones of Britannia will cover up to 1066.

What are the playable factions? While all the factions are yet to be revealed so far CA confirm that Viking settlers, Anglo-Saxons and "certain Gaelic clans" will be among them.

The game will offer a super-detailed campaign map, with more regional distinction. Developer The Creative Assembly, the studio behind Total War, also made Halo Wars 2 for Microsoft. These are things we've already announced, though more key features will be announced soon!
