Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia is the first of several Total War series' spin-offs developed by Creative Assembly. The creators focus on historical periods and events, which are not extensive enough to establish a background of a full-fledged installment. Similarly to other Total War games, this title is available on PC Windows exclusively.

Plot

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia takes players to the British Isles from the 9th century. The action of the game begins in 878 AD when the army led by King Alfred the Great has defeated the Danes led by King Guthrumem at Ethandun. As a result, the overall situation has stabilized for the first time in eight decades.

The peace did not last long, though, as the Kings of England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland started to fight over which kingdom should predominate in the Union of the Isles. Moreover, the Norse Warlords decided to seize the opportunity and joined the fight. Players are tasked with siding with a given faction and leading it to victory.

Mechanics

The PC / Windows release of Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia draws multiple inspirations from the other installments in the Total War series. Even though in terms of its size, the game described resembles the expansion to Total War: SHOGUN 2, called Fall of The Samurai, the player can find all the series signature elements. Gameplay is divided into two stages the turn-based movement on the strategic map (together with taking care of the economic and diplomatic aspects of the controlled provinces) and the spectacular battles, during which the player takes direct control over the army and fight in real time.

Technical aspects

Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia delivers high-quality visuals. Particular units and elements of the environments are rich with details; also the strategy map is pleasing to one's eye, as it changes in accordance with player's progress in the game. The entire experience is complemented well by the atmospheric soundtrack.
