Total War Three Kingdoms brings all the strategy and spectacle of past games, this time bringing the battle to the fields of Ancient China during the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Although the basics are the same, Total War Three Kingdoms has an interesting twist by introducing powerful warlords and faction leaders. Here’s how to get Lu Bu in Total War Three Kingdoms.
How to Get Lu Bu in Total War Three Kingdoms
Lu Bu is easily the most renowned warrior of the entire time period Total War Three Kingdoms takes place in, and if you’ve played other games like Dynasty Warriors, you’ll be instantly familiar with him. Unfortunately, you aren’t able to play as Lu Bu right off the bat, but there are a couple of ways to do so.
The official Total War YouTube account posted a video detailing two different ways to get Lu Bu, and we’ll help go over them.
Destroying the Dong Zhuo Faction
The first, and most roundabout way, of getting Lu Bu is by annihilating Dong Zhuo’s faction. If you eliminate the warlord during a campaign, Lu Bu will be sent out to the global recruitment pool.
Now he’s more likely to join factions with characters he’s acquainted to, or that have similar traits. This means you have a chance of recruiting Lu Bu, and playing as him in your faction. However, the second option actually lets Lu Bu become your faction leader.
Playing as Dong Zhuo
To do the second option you’ll need to play a campaign as Dong Zhuo, which in and of itself requires a bit of work. In order to play as Dong Zhuo you’ll need to reach the rank of Emperor in other any campaign. After that, you’ll unlock the option to play as the tyrant.
Once you’ve unlocked him start up a campaign as Dong Zhuo, and you’ll need to follow a chain of events that leads to Lu Bu killing him. This includes having Lu Bu marry DiaoChan, among other things.
At turn 13, Lu Bu will murder Dong Zhuo and he’ll assume command over the faction, letting you take direct control of the fearsome warrior.
