Total War: THREE KINGDOMS Getting Bloodier

Creative Assembly announces a Reign of Blood Effects Pack coming to Total War: THREE KINGDOMS on Thursday, which will increase the blood and gore level in the historical strategy game. Those who purchase this on Steam will find a new option for more gore in the game's advanced graphics settings. This trailer shows this off, so avoid this if you faint at the sight of blood. Here's word:
Experience the battlefields of ancient China in gruesome detail with the Reign of Blood Effects Pack for Total War: THREE KINGDOMS. This pack introduces a number of new gory and mature-rated effects, animations and kill-moves to the game in both Campaign and Battle. Once installed, these effects can be activated in the graphics settings of Total War: THREE KINGDOMS.

Campaign effects:

  • New campaign event-pictures depicting blood and gore
  • New blood effects for battle-resolution combat animations between characters

Battle effects:

  • Human dismemberment: limb-lops and beheadings
  • Equine dismemberment: leg lops
  • Charred bodies
  • Blood sprays on weapon impacts
  • New death animations for characters vs infantry
  • Dead bodies as battlefield set-dressing
  • Blood scaler: increase or decrease the level of gore to your tastes

Please note that, depending on your country of residence, the Reign of Blood Effects Pack may raise the age-rating of the main game.

Not enough... I want the whole battlefield to be covered in a constant splattering/fountaining red cloud the minute 2 units make contact. /s

I think this is way too much blood, but hey... I guess some people will like it.

There's a scaler.

if I "kind of liked" Mordau, will I like this? I do like Mortal Kombat, the old skool versions.

I was obviously joking with my MK11 reference. This looks kewl. Never tried a TW game. Might have to give this a shot.

Yeah.. Even if you could render MK-level gore on thousands of units, you won't be zoomed in far enough to notice much of it during normal gameplay anyway. You buy this to stain battlefields red and maybe catch some dismemberment in those rare cases where you're super-focused on only a couple units fighting.

Not gory enough. I would have actually bought the game if it was.

I'm going to have to see it in actual gameplay action to make my judgement on whether to buy or not.

I'm sorry but MK11 has spoiled me on gore. If eyeballs are not being launched out of their eye sockets or skin peeled off the body, I simply will not play it.

MK11 has two characters on screen to render. TKs has 2000. You can't render MK quality on 2000 characters and have acceptable frame rates. Also, there a scaler, so you can turn it up to 11. Lastly, who plays a Total War title for the gore?
