New Total War: Three Kingdoms Trailer Shows Zhuge Liang

Total War: Three Kingdoms Gets a New Dramatic Trailer

A new trailer for the turn-based strategy game Total War: Three Kingdoms features the Imperial-era Chinese military strategist Zhuge Liang saying some somber words about war and the destruction it causes.

Apparently, Liang is an in-game ally that players can have on their side if they prove “worthy enough” for his help, according to a press release.

“Zhuge Liang, an incredibly talented strategist, is willing only to serve an honourable master,” the press release read. “In this age of boundless greed, hope of finding someone worthy seems lost. Until he meets the kind and virtuous man of the people, Liu Bei. Together, they will fight to bring peace to China and restore harmony to its embattled landscape.”

Here’s a list of Liang’s four abilities along with official descriptions:

  • Way of the Wind: Zhuge Liang predicts the wind through study of the world.
  • Sight of the Dragon: The enemy is located; the earth reveals them.
  • Stifling Deluge: A suppressing aura that confounds the foe.
  • Feather Fan: With it, Zhuge Liang can feel the very pull of the elements.
