Watch: 30 minutes of Total War: Thrones of Britannia

It wasn’t until after I began recording this Thrones of Britannia let’s play that I realised how difficult the save file I’d just selected was going to be. This late-game campaign features the kingdom of Northymbre, a faction that needs to carefully balance the needs of both the British population it’s subjugating and the Viking army under its control. As you can see from the very start of this video, both sides are feeling pretty miffed in this particular playthrough.

Thankfully I don’t really have enough time to sort that out in today’s preview, so instead, I start a bit of a war.

A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia will be released on the 19th April for PC.
