Another historical icon was confirmed for Total War Saga Thrones of Britannia, the king of the Gaelic Kingdom, Flann Sinna. Creative Assembly has released a new trailer showing off the king’s battle prowess and his resolve to unite the kingdom under his rule.
Creative Assembly’s announcement described the king’s place in history this way:
Flann Sinna was the son of Máel Sechnaill mac Máele Ruanaid of Clann Cholmáin, a branch of the southern Uí Néill. He was King of Mide from 877 onwards and many consider him to be a High King of Ireland.

Thrones of Britannia is the first outing for the Total Wars Saga spinoff series. Creative Assembly views the “Saga” games as a means to put out installments that can focus on a specific historical period or event in a specific region. The game is bound for PC on 19 April.
