Creative Assembly just announced a brand new game mode coming to Total War: THREE KINGDOMS, it's called Dynasty Mode developed in partnership with Intel.
Dynasty Mode is a horde-style arcade mode, that will be free for all owners of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS and will release as an update at the same time as the Eight Princes DLC. For Windows, that's on August 8th but Linux gamers will have a little wait. Feral Interactive said on Twitter "The hordes of Dynasty Mode surge onto macOS and Linux shortly after Windows.".
Have a look at the trailer:
Dynasty Mode can be played solo or online in three-player co-op mode with friends. You will face waves of enemies, which grow in strength and size over time with every third wave having powerful enemies heroes.
This mode will also allow you to expand enemy unit sizes by up to "600%", to really test your skill and push the performance of your PC to its limit. Creative Assembly said they worked with Intel, to help their game engine take better advanced of multi-core CPUs, since upping the enemy unit sizes will take a lot more power.
I'll admit, this sounds like a huge amount of fun! Can't wait to jump in. Will let you know when Feral Interactive provide a date for the Linux version update.
