Total War: Three Kingdoms is getting another slice of DLC, and you won’t have to wait too long to get your hands on it. Sega reveals that the strategy game’s next chunk of content, Fates Divided, touches down on PC on March 11.

This one is set ten years after the primary campaign and features the conflict between two friends – those pals being Cao Cao and Yuan Shao, two of China’s fearsome warlords of the past. As you go about forging your new empire, you’ll be able to call upon them. In doing so, you’ll learn about their motivations and other stories from the 200 CE timeline. You’ll also find plenty of era-defining units to play with. You’ve got Ye Vanguard Spearmen, Xiongnu Noble Cavalry, and Qingzhou Halberds. You can also control the elite Northern Army if you claim victory over your adversaries.

You can try out a new cross-generational campaign where you start as Liu Yan, too. He comes with an aspiration mechanic that allows him to set the stage for his son Liu Zhang – uh, also controlled by you – to take over.

Fates Divided additionally comes with a free update for all Three Kingdoms players. If you own it, you’re getting faction reworks for Cao Cao and Yuan Shao, a new Imperial Intrigue mechanic, improvements to the Faction Council, and more.
