How would you feel about a new Medieval total war presented as a trilogy in a similar manner to the Warhammer series? TW: Warhammer is the most supported and largest Total War title yet and this is because its been broken up into three games worth of content.
What would a Medieval 3 look like in this format? Heres my thoughts
This would be the similar focus of Medieval 2 with a mostly European map and factions the main events could be around invasions from the middle east and Africa
This map would flesh out the muslim world and feature a seperate campaign focused there with most of the factions trying to form their own Caliphates, other Christian factions would appear here like Byzantium, Iberian Kingdoms, Ethiopia who would have their own objectives. (the map would probably go from Iberia, parts of the mediterranian and Africa into central asia) End game events could involve defending from crusades or mongols.
Of course like Warhammer a campaign stitching the new area on to the original game 1 map would appear and should result in having the best map of 'old world' we've seen yet surpassing Medieval 2 and Rome 2's attempts.
This game is basically about expanding the world out as far east as its possible. Mongols would be fully fleshed out as a playable faction with unique empire building mechanics. The seperate campaign would be focused on Mongolian campaigns so central asia into eastern europe and south into India and east into China. And of course a final update to the Total map creating effectively a Total War: Eurasia.
I'm honestly not sure if it would be possible it would certainly end up bigger than Warhammer maybe it would need to be broken into four games? And there are certainly downsides to this approach.
Would you like to see a Medieval 3 or another historical title as a trilogy? Would you break up the games differently? Let me know what you think!
