That threw me back to the Romance of the Three Kingdoms game I played on the first gen Playstation. ****ing Lu Bu betrayed me, cost me a major battle. I later defeated and captured him; executed his ass.
I wonder how well this will play after the two excellent Warhammer games. There is something to be said about having factions that are total opposites in army composition and style. Let alone that they each faction have different play styles on the campaign map.
Oh it'll be very hard for them to follow up on WH. The unit and faction variety just can't be equalled in a historical setting and each factions playstyle is radically unique and distinct from each other. There are also many unit mechanics that can't be translated as well (the various weapon effects, lord abilities, unit effects like regen or ethereal, undead crumbling mechanics, resistances, magic items etc) that really add to the depth of the combat and multiplayer. Flying just isn't a thing and nor are special mounts. Magic it out. Dunno if they can put quest battles in again.
Among other things, its going to be super hard to make a game as good as Warhammer again imo.
