The game will take place in the British Isles around 878AD, just after the invasion of The Great Heathen Army and will feature an all new "highly detailed" campaign map along with ten new playable factions and new mechanics.
Total War Sagas: Thrones of Britannia will be available for PC in 2018.
The campaign itself begins in 878 AD, as Norse invaders construct settlements in the lands they once pillaged, while various Anglo-Saxon kings either stand defiant or give in to their demands.

Sega and Creative Assembly have unveiled the first game in the Total War Sagas series, a spin-off brand from the popular Total War epic strategy titles. Alongside the core historical-based games, the Total War series has expanded to include free-to-play mobile (Total War Battles™: KINGDOM) and PC titles (Total War™: ARENA), now in development. The series, which focuses on specific periods in history, will have "Thrones of Britannia" as its first entry.
Total War series director Mike Simpson said the Total War Saga games will explore "key flashpoints at distinct places and times in history". "This will complement our broader-scope titles perfectly". For the first time in almost 80 years, the land is in a fragile state of peace. There will be turns of fortune that become the stuff of legend, in a saga that charts the ascent of one of history's greatest nations.
Creative Assembly claim that Thrones of Britannia will have "the most detailed Total War campaign map ever made".
Kings will rise. One will rule.
