    Which do you prefer as Saga and Mini-Campaign?

    *Hundred Years War
    *Crusade

    Hundred years war, but the crusades would be cool too, however they already covered the crusades in kingdoms so they might not touch it.

    Saga - a medieval Icelandic or Norse prose narrative of achievements and events in the history of a personage, family, etc.

    Hope the first Saga title has Vikings... just saying.

    1066

    So based on what we know so far, I can guestimate the Saga takes place sometime between 1000 A.D. and 1535 A.D., and considering the amount of events that take place between 1000 A.D. and 1300 A.D. I think it's a safe bet it'll be sometime within those 300 years.

    WHAT?! They're announcing Saga already?! I did not expect that, but this makes me really happy. :)

    A bit late for the third installment of R2/Attila, don't you think?

    One hopes (or just after/6th c. Britain generally).

    As King Arthur never exists, probably time of the anglosaxon kingdoms.

    I hope you are wrong. We have had a lot of sword, bow, cavalry games lately. Rome, Attila, Warhammer (even though has magic). I'm all down for a viking age or full out Medieval three; however, I think CA is going to go in a different direction. I'm expecting a Pike and Shotte, Victorian Era, or maybe even a WW1 (prob not) type of game with a whole new feel. They are really hyping this up so why would it be just for another swordplay total war?

    it is M2 kingdoms British Islands again ;)

    Nice trailer, very excited for the game, let's see how the Saga take on Total War titles pans out. Good choice of the historical setting too, Viking Invasion is really cool. Can't wait to play with the Scots!
  • MarcusIuniusBrutusMarcusIuniusBrutus Senior Member GermanyRegistered Users Posts: 1,739
    As expected. A safe sale for the anglosaxon market. ;)

    vikings.... I am so very not excited :/
  • dchiukdchiuk Registered Users Posts: 8
    GREAT NEWS.... happy we are seeing new developments in the pipeline for your historical fans. Great choice of era and location, ending around 1066..... wonder if anything happened around that period for a further expansion???? ;)

    The rise of Alfred the Great would be an awesome choice for one of these sagas. One of my favourite passages from the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle describes Alfred's desperate fightback after being pushed back to his resistance stronghold in the swamps:

    "...and most of the people they [the Danes under Guthrum] killed, except the King Alfred, and he with a little band made his way by wood and swamp, and after Easter he made a fort at Athelney in the marshes of Somerset, and from that fort kept fighting against the foe."

    Quite a few scholars believe that Athelney was the precursor of King Arthur's Camelot Castle in Avalon, so for those asking for a TW: King Arthur, this could be your non-fiction version ;)

    The devs have mentioned this one won't be character-driven, so maybe it is centred around the Great Heathen Army as you suggest. It would certainly segue on nicely from from where Attila left off.

    Quoted from back in July. I am very much looking forward to this one!

    Turns out, the game spans from 878 to 1066+, so technically it falls within the 1000 A.D. to 1300 A.D. mark. It just starts a bit earlier than I had guestimated.

    Personally, I'm more interested in the 1300s on, not to mention other parts of the world, but oh well. All this sword and board era stuff is starting to leave me sword and bored :neutral: :

    I hope to see a Sage Setting based in Reneaissence Italy , it would be the best setting for early gunpoweder age, from the Southern Kingdom of Naples up to the Northern scattered lands.

    How about doing something very different, something to do with world war i or world war 2. I personally liked the mod that was all world war I, I think it was for napoleon. I would love to see something along that line that would incorporate Map of Europe to the Pacific, Have the usual participants, US, Britain, Japan, Germany and Russia. Have a ton of ideas of how this would work out. I think it would be a nice change, of pace personally.
