Total War: Three Kingdoms update 1.71 has released, and according to Creative Assembly, it will be the last major content addition for the game.

The good news on that front is that the team is transitioning to another project based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms Novel, which is set in the same timeframe.

As for the patch, there's a decent amount of new goodies in it. There are apparently "numerous community-requested fixes", as well as a change to the campaign map that has Mount Song and Hulao moved to their correct locations. This means that for some areas around the Yellow River players are now prevented from getting past gate passes so easily now, which is said to be a good thing. I say that because I've never played Three Kingdoms or any Total War game remotely seriously besides a little of Napoleon, so let's keep pretending I know what I'm talking about, shall we?

 As for what's to come, the team is apparently "increasing [their] focus on this novel’s rich cast of characters and their individual and unique narratives, taking the core of what made Total War: Three Kingdoms so special and pushing it further.” That sounds pretty good, although as always we'll have to wait and see how successful Creative Assembly is in exploring the Three Kingdoms fiction in their upcoming game(s). 


If you would like to check out the full patch notes, be sure to go here. If you have bought Total War: Three Kingdoms but not all the DLC, you can buy a "Complete your Collection" bundle on Steam to buy all seven DLC's at a discount when the patch goes live later today.
