This month is going to be a pretty packed one for A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, and we’ve got a brand new, in engine, cinematic trailer for you; Alfred the Great’s victory at the Battle of Edington, in which he stood fast against the Viking invaders and changed the future of the British Isles in 878 AD.

Much like Alfred, each playable faction leader will face a series of unique events and branching dilemmas based on actual historical events. The choices made will have great consequences, allowing players to write their own story and change history.

You can try to win in a number of ways – aggressively expanding through force of arms, by increasing their faction’s fame through construction, advanced technology and influence, and by completing a series of unique objectives, based on their chosen faction’s history. A final, ultimate, victory condition can also be aimed for, presenting the player with a unique and significant late-game challenge.

Sound fun? There’s more details on their Steam page.
