Ahead of its launch on 7 March 2019, Total War: Three Kingdoms posted a new reveal trailer showcasing a new playable faction.
The faction in question is none other than Dong Zhuo, the tyrant who brought about the fall of the Han dynasty, ushering in the era of the Three Kingdoms.
With the inclusion of Dong Zhuo, Total War: Three Kingdoms boasts a total of 12 playable factions, namely Liu Bei; Cao Cao; Sun Jian; Liu Biao; Dong Zhuo; Yuan Shao; Yuan Shu; Ma Teng; Gongsun Zan; Kong Rong; Zheng Jiang and Zhang Yan.
Greed drives the malevolent Dong Zhuo, and he’ll let nothing stand in his way. Flanked by his adopted son Lü Bu, the greatest warrior in the land, no one can match their might and fury. By spreading fear and intimidation, those who oppose Dong Zhuo will soon bow down. Victory is nearly in his grasp!
Dong Zhou will appear as a playable faction once you defeat Dong Zhuo in battle (you don’t need to kill him, just defeat the army he is a part of) or reach the rank of Emperor.
