Total War: THREE KINGDOMS - Fates Divided will be released for macOS and Linux shortly after Windows Determine the fate of China in the new Chapter pack for Total War: Three Kingdoms. Grow Yuan Shao’s mighty army or stand in his way as Cao Cao and use strategy to achieve the grandest of ambitions. In the Fates Divided Chapter Pack you begin at 200 CE, a period that finds Yuan Shao and Cao Cao at a crucial turning point. These childhood friends have borne witness to each other’s growing ambition, but Yuan Shao’s patience with Cao Cao is fast coming to an end – a childhood bond is about to break. Fates Divided includes significant improvements to several in-game mechanics, a new faction, and new units, as well as new playstyles for established factions. A Unique Start Date The 200 CE start date throws players into a moment in history where the story’s main heroes are now developed and formidable forces. Will you continue Cao Cao’s march across the map or use Yuan Shao’s grand army to stop him in his tracks? Whilst the conflict focuses on the warlords in the north, you can also play as characters such as Liu Bei and Ma Teng, helping them to achieve their lofty goals. New Cross-Generational Faction Play as Liu Yan, a man of great ambition and strategy, as he attempts to establish a lasting legacy for his family. Make best use of Liu Yan’s aspiration mechanic to set the stage for Liu Zhang’s eventual inheritance, and reap the rewards of your father’s hard work, or watch as his best laid plans crumble under your care. New and Varied Units With a host of new units for Cao Cao, Yuan Shao and Liu Yan, as well as the chance to gain the elite Northern Army units, this is a Chapter Pack that’s coming out fighting.

Total War: Three Kingdoms - Fates Divided Critic Reviews

You won't want to start every game of Three Kingdoms at 200 CE, but it's a perfect place to jump headfirst into a tense, dramatic conflict already in play. Battles are even grander, and new additions make the strategy layer more interesting than ever.

Total War: Three Kingdoms - Fates Divided is one of the game's weakest DLCs when it comes to narrative events, but it does present a great scenario for a Cao Cao or Yuan Shao campaign. For the most part, though, you're looking at a highly impressive free update. It truly makes the game more refreshing and engaging, thereby also completely overshadowing what the DLC provides.

Though slightly overshadowed by the depth of the accompanying free update, Fates Divided's new factions and late-game start positions are the ideal way to experience it.
