Total War: THREE KINGDOMS - A World Betrayed was announced today as the latest expansion, it looks and sounds good and a release isn't far away. Arriving for Windows on March 17, the porting studio Feral Interactive announced the Linux version will see support for it "shortly after Windows".
A World Betrayed portrays a seminal moment in the history of the Three Kingdoms. Taking place following the Three Kingdoms conflict from 194 CE, many of the iconic warlords of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS have now passed on, a catalyst that has spurred a new generation of warlords into making a play for their own dynasties.
You can see the story trailer here but more interesting is the actual gameplay, which you can see below:

Creative Assembly have said that an update will come too, so even if you don't pick up the DLC there will be a "number of improvements to the Total War: THREE KINGDOMS campaign" for everyone. This will include a free playable warlord Yan Baihu, also known as White Tiger Yan and a number of new units and buildings. They also said that a DLC in this time period was one of the "most highly requested" by actual players.
