Total War: Three Kingdoms has announced an update in form of the free Dynasty mode. It’s a horde mode where three heroes somehow have to survive a battle against an infinite army.
The horde might have the numbers, but the heroes have their legendary special abilities, which would have been honed and perfected in the campaign.
As enemies are killed, stronger reinforcements will appear, and then players will need to deal with enemy generals every third wave. Your heroes will get stronger, too, earning points that can be spent on new skills.
If the endless waves aren’t challenging enough for you, you can always bump up the unit size slider and fight mega-units comprised of 960 warriors. Normal units have 80. While Three Kingdoms is the best optimised of all the Total Wars, you’ll probably need a hefty PC to push that slider all the way.
Dynasty mode is due out on August 8.
