When bros become foes.
Ten years have passed since the events of Total War: Three Kingdoms, and things haven’t gotten considerably more calm. Two warlords, once intimate friends, have come to loggerheads–and it’s up to you to determine which one is going to control the destiny of China.
Arriving following month, Fates Divided is another piece of DLC for the Ancient Chinese epic. The Chapter Pack follows Cao Cao and Yuan Shao, telling new stories starting from 200CE as China’s strongest warlords come to loggerheads. Naturally this includes brand new components, with Creative Assembly introducing the Ye Vanguard Spearmen, Xiongnu Noble Cavalry, Qingzhou Halberds, and also an elite”Northern Army” to treat.
“In the Fates Divided Chapter Pack you begin at 200 CE, a period that finds Yuan Shao and Cao Cao in a critical turning point,” Creative Assembly clarify. “These youth friends have borne witness to each other’s rising ambition, but Yuan Shao’s patience with Cao Cao is fast coming to an end — a childhood bond is going to break.”
Blood feuds are not the only stories Fates Divided needs to tell, however. The DLC also introduces Liu Yan’s campaign, which sees that the rough strategist attempt to forge a future for his son, with new mechanisms for setting up a legacy that’ll continue after the father’s departure.
The Chapter Bundle comes alongside a large free upgrade for all factions, introducing a brand new Imperial intrigue mechanic, faction rewords for Cao Cao and Yuan Shao, tweaks into the faction council, as well as many more changes plotted over on the DLC’s FAQ.
