The latest instalment in the Total War series, Thrones of Britannia, gets a new cinematic trailer. Check it out above.
“It was under Alfred the Great and his immediate successors that a unified Anglo-Saxon kingdom was first forged.” said Thrones of Britannia Game Director, Jack Lusted. “As the only major kingdom left standing after the Viking Invasion, it was under the banner of Wessex that the lands the Great Viking Army had conquered, known as the Danelaw, were retaken. The name of this kingdom changed from Wessex to England.”
The Anglo-Saxons had conquered the land and united the people, mixing and merging cultures that originated in Germany, Scandinavia, and Europe.
“The reconquest of the Danelaw led to an adoption of many elements of Viking culture, some of which persist today. A number of towns across Northern England bear Viking names for instance, and there are well over a hundred common English terms that can be traced back to Nordic origins.”
This new English kingdom would go on to be seized by William the Conqueror in 1066 at the Battle of Hastings.
SEGA and Creative Assembly are set to release Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia on 3rd May. It can be pre-ordered on Steam here or via one of the retailers below.
