Another way to glean info about the princes is to look closely to flags in the trailer. Unlike the flags in the main game, which show clan name, the flags in the 8 Princes scenario reveal each prince's title. It wouldn't make sense to show their family name as they are all Simas. However, for Sima Ai it will say something like "Prince of Changsha" on the flags of his army. I'm actually positive the middle aged helmeted man with the trebs firing flaming shots is Sima Yong now, as his flags say "Prince of Hejian."

Edit-As an aside, I believe the man speaking to Sima Liang in the trailer, when Sima Wei comes at both with a sword behind his back, is Wei Guan.

I still think it’s an odd inclusion for the first DLC pack. Would have thought a campaign taking place circa 215 would be many people’s preference.

That said I’ll almost certainly still buy it, it’s the best total war I’ve ever played.

The more I read about the Eight Princes DLC, more I plan to get it when I get the game, they do well in their blogs to set out the characters and the different challenges they provide

Free DLC has been Dynasty Mode, certainly seems like something different from their usual gameplay.

Our of curiosity, does the game have mini bio's for their non-unique NPC's?

Nope, characters description is just of their background type so characters with a non-unique one (90% of them) share descriptions with other officers. For instance I believe Shen Pei and Xu Rong have the same description.

8 Princes has a lot of really nice small touches, the Jin Empire interacts with the player through choices more often, it has stronger armies then the Han did so you have to be careful about pissing it off.

Also you have the choice of saving the Jin Empire or replacing it, something I wish the base game allowed me to do, also current RTK games, :P

I only messed around with Dynasty Mode once but it seems like it could be fun. I didn't really bring an optimal team (Gan Ning, Xu Chu, and Yue Jin) but there are tons of option for characters so finding ones that really work well together could be nice.
