Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia gets a new trailer for St George's Day


The 23rd of April marked St. George's Day, and Creative Assembly and Sega celebrated this occasion, with the release of a new cinematic trailer for A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, which pays homage to its English heritage.



The next release from the multi-award-winning Total War strategy series takes England and the British Isles as its setting, during a time of great change that would come to define it.
"It was under Alfred the Great and his immediate successors that a unified Anglo-Saxon kingdom was first forged." said Thrones of Britannia Game Director, Jack Lusted. "As the only major kingdom left standing after the Viking Invasion, it was under the banner of Wessex that the lands the Great Viking Army had conquered, known as the Danelaw, were retaken. The name of this kingdom changed from Wessex to England."
The Anglo-Saxons had conquered the land and united the people, mixing and merging cultures that originated in Germany, Scandinavia, and Europe.
"The reconquest of the Danelaw led to an adoption of many elements of Viking culture, some of which persist today. A number of towns across Northern England bear Viking names for instance, and there are well over a hundred common English terms that can be traced back to Nordic origins."
This new English kingdom would go on to be seized by William the Conqueror in 1066 at the Battle of Hastings.

The game is out soon, May 3 to be exact and can be pre-ordered from the Sega digital store now.

Stormdivers announced from Housemarque


Housemarque has announced their next title, Stormdivers, sadly apart from a teaser trailer and a few stills, not much is known about the game.



If you recall, last year the studio announced some serious changes to how they were going to deliver games, only time will tell, if this new game is a product of that change. The studio did release a statement about the game, included was this line.

Our newest title will still remain in a slight shroud of mystery, but we can say that it will be a high flying and heavy hitting, multiplayer centric experience. It will be the first title that we treat as an on-going service, this also means that there are ways to get to play it earlier and we'd love to develop it further with a feedback loop in mind.

So hopefully, this means that the game will grow overtime, but with less than 2 months until E3, I doubt we will need to wait to long to find out.
