Today Creative Assembly released a brand new video of the upcoming DLC Mandate of Heaven for Total War: Three Kingdoms introducing the Yellow Turban faction.
We get to take a look at the three sub-factions including Zhang Jue, Zhang Liang, and Zhang Bao, each of whom has a very different playstyle and stance.
We hear about the Zeal mechanic, which is a bonus pool shared between the three brothers mentioned above.
The faction has plenty of unique mechanics that will provide players with a different gameplay experience compared to the base game.
You can enjoy the video below.
If the names mentioned above don’t ring a bell, here’s an official description for each.
A renowned healer in his native Julu commandery, Zhang Jue is known as the General of Heaven. His discovery of the Scriptures of Great Peace, detailing the connection between heaven and earth, have set him on the path to raising a righteous rebellion against the corrupt Han Dynasty. Zhang Jue has mustered his brothers and their followers to his cause and sparked a flame in the hearts of the people.
Zhang Liang, the General of the People, is an artisan of defensive strategies. As such, his aim is to build an impregnable defence against the Han as they attempt to stamp out the rebellion. In fact, the Han warlord Lu Zhi has been dispatched with precisely this directive, and Zhang Liang has been tasked with defending against him. The result of this clash could dramatically shift the balance of power!
Known as the General of the Land, Zhang Bao hones naked aggression into a force for change. He forms the spear-tip of the rebellion, hurling himself boldly into the fray. He seeks to rapidly expand the rebels’ sphere of influence and is in the best position to achieve this.
