Set during the chaotic turn of the 10th Century; the world starts to emerge from the Dark Ages divided and at war.

"Adding depth, persistency, and learning from our experience with Total War Battles: SHOGUN, we wanted to create a new way of playing Total War Battles. Whether that's on the move or at work over lunch," said Renaud Charpentier, CA Digital Project Lead, "It shouldn't matter where you want to play, we want to make it easy to come back again and again to your flourishing Kingdom. Then, we ramp up the complexity and challenge, adding more options to your Machiavellian schemes."
