Total War: Three Kingdoms is all about China, which is obvious. The game depicts one of the most exciting eras in the history of the country. And it shouldn’t be surprising that the Chinese audience contributed to making the national market the biggest one for the strategy. Creative Assembly has officially confirmed the information in an interview to GI.biz.
“We’re now at a point where China is absolutely the most major market for Three Kingdoms. And it’s definitely hovering around in that Top Six collection of territories that we have for all of our games that we’re selling at the moment.”
Not only that, but China was also among the top sources of pre-orders for the game, and it concerns not only existing fans of the franchise but also newcomers who were most likely attracted by the historical Chinese setting. Total War: Three Kingdoms is a great example of a niche genre beating a number of mainstream shooters and action games; it’s a display of how the Chinese market has grown for Steam as well. Valve has been constantly working in the direction to make its digital service more freely available in the country for the past few years, and now, we are witnessing the results of these efforts.
Total War: Three Kingdoms has sky-rocketed in Steam charts since it released last week. The game proved to be the most successful launch in the history of the franchise for Creative Assembly in terms of setting the newest record in the number of concurrent players. Moreover, the game is also the biggest release on Steam for 2019 so far.
