Total War: Three Kingdoms – Mandate of Heaven Update

Written by Marcello TBL


Colossal Chapter Pack introduces a new prequel campaign, an armada of new units, and a range of playable factions – including the Han Empire.

It is Winter 182CE, and discontent stirs through the Han Dynasty. Famine, plague, and taxation have driven the people of the Empire to desperation. In the West, three brothers speak of a time to come, a time without the Han Empire, a time of rebellion – and their followers flock to them, like water along a river. Yet, in these dark times, a dim light shines, there are those who seek to bring peace to the land, to end this time of suffering and save the ancient dynasty from collapse. From these heroes, Three Kingdoms shall arise…

  • 6 new playable factions – including the Han Empire.
  • 5 existing factions – with origin stories and new starting positions.
