I'm rather surprised to see him get a poster since his faction doesn't seem to be playable.


Yet

Liu Zhang DLC :mrgreen: ? Don't think I'd pay that somehow.

Zhuge Liang trailer, outfitted with a campaign map having trouble rendering.

Liu Zhang: Forgettable, he looks friendly and warm, clothing a bit bland and poor choice of colours, I like his proponent of peace
5.5

I wonder if they moved that trailer up given the row about Zhuge Liang. Not sure it will answer or soothe concerns, wasn't a voice of the voicework, it shows us many locations to make point about diversity of climate but at this stage, people want more. They have promised a look at spies next week

Yeah, Liu Yan/Zhang is almost certainly coming at some point (my guess is either first or second post-release) but putting out a poster for someone who isn't available yet during the pre-release attempts to build anticipation is odd.


Yeah that has been an odd one. I thought they would do a few more Wei ones then move onto Wu, save up Liu Zhang for when they (almost inevitably) announce a Liu Yan or western DLC pack.

I can see him being sold along side another character, by himself would be hard to justify without some really interesting mechanics attached to him.

Decent documentary. Preferred when David Attenborough does it though.

CA should probably pick a camera height that doesn't trigger the foliage draw distance if they don't want the bottom of the screen to look like it's on a different framerate.

That might not be a bad idea for a western DLC pack. Liu Yan with some notable Shu names under him, the mystic Zhang Lu, Nanman for something very different might have more marketing appeal then Yi based pack

Since they are showcasing people that weren't around in 190 as figures, I'm assuming multiple start dates are a thing so DLC can really vary. There could easily be a Southern Warlords pack consisting of people like Jin Xuan, Han Xuan, Zhao Fan, Gong Du, Shi Xie, or a Wu Warlords with White Tiger Yan, Wang Lang and Liu Yao, or more Liangzhou Warlords etc.

There can be a lot they can do, but boy itll be pricey

I like that idea. Fortunately there is a sizable modding community so that even if they decide against it somebody out there will sort it!

Tao Qian was been confirmed because we all need a good laugh. Still no gameplay because it's probably in a barely playable state still, because Total War be like that sometimes.
