Awesome!

Just looked at the Steam page. It seems to be set in 878AD - which is a good couple of hundred years into the early middle ages… well past the transition from end of the Roman Empire and into the time of Norse invasions from the north. Hmm - I wonder how long a period will be the game time? I quite like late middle age stuff - where technology was increasing and armies more organised, althought that can technically stretch up til the 1400s I believe… But saying that, the earlier periods will be more interesting because of the shear amount of factions involved.

Definitely be getting this…

After recently losing whole nights to warhammer 2, I am loving this idea.

also its 876 to 1066 Jester. On the FAQ here: https://www.totalwar.com/blog/thrones-britannia-faq

I wonder what faction I may pick…

So up to the Battle of Hastings. Makes sense.

so that’ll be the boss fight, right?

Total War AI is legendary.

OH YEAH I’M REVIVING THIS!

Because there are so many Total War games, might as well use this thread to throw things into.

I’m itching to get Total War Warhammer II purely because of Lizardmen as a faction, but now they’re releasing this pack:

There was one piece of “fluff” in the 2nd edition of the Liazardman army book for Warhammer Fantasy, which included information on a legendary Kroxigor, whose name I cannot remember, but I always found it interesting. Kroxigor are normally large, dumb-ish brute units that just smash things up. This guy had cunning and guile.

There was also another piece of fluff, or story paragraph, where a unit of skinks are attacking some Bretonnians knights and suddenly a Kroxigor just charges through the water like it wasn’t even an obstacle and proceeds to cleave a knight and his horse in two with a single blow. Not stunning, but the way it was written just made them seem like such badasses.

I either have to wait for this to go to a GOTY edition or bite the bullet and get it.

Honestly?

WH2 DLC, despite the price, is really damn good. Its my most played game in the last two years by a mile. Just get it :smiley:

I think its the best game CA have made.
