CA Delays Total War: Thrones of Britannia

Creative Assembly has officially announced that Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia has been delayed, moving the game’s release date from April 19th to May 3rd.

This delay comes as a result of early feedback for the game, which highlighted several changes which would improve the gameplay experience of Thrones of Britannia. These changes include a breakdown of contributing factors to a faction’s War Fervour level, improvements to the game’s UI and some rebalancing work for the game’s campaign and battle AI.    

In addition to this, the game’s battle AI flanking behaviour will be changed as well as several battle animations that will reinforce the common “shield-wall” battle strategies of that era.  

    We’d like to buy ourselves a bit more time for the final push, so we’ve made the call to nudge the release date back by two weeks, from April 19th to May 3rd. Alongside our usual prelaunch procedures, we’re adding and tweaking a few features we wouldn’t otherwise have time for.

These changes will include some quality-of-life UI improvements, such as showing the player a breakdown of sources contributing to their current War Fervour level. We’re also implementing multiple shades of plus-and-minus effects regarding different levels of food, and how each level interacts with upkeep and supplies.

We’re doing some more balancing work on the campaign AI, chiefly regarding its aggression levels on different difficulty settings, and the number (and composition) of the armies it recruits. Generals will also change in appearance as they age, which is reflected in their portraits.  

Total War: Thrones of Britannia has been delayed  

Thrones of Britannia is based on an upgraded version of Total War: Attila’s engine, offering PC system requirements that are lower than Total War Warhammer II while also higher than Total War: Attila. Creative Assembly says that a lot of work has been done on “engine optimisation”, so expect a graphical upgrade from Attila and more efficient use of PC hardware.
