There's some fantastic news for Total War: Three Kingdoms fans today as the official modding tools have now been released, and there's already lots of mods available in the Steam Workshop for players to enjoy.
The applications are based on the Rome 2 and later set of development tools, so modders should file right at home using them and there's plenty of resources online already for anyone looking to get started, although of course there are some changes for Three Kingdoms, as you'd expect.
The good news is the changes make modding easier, according to Creative Assembly. You'll even be able to make your own character portraits and other 2D artwork with some of the materials provided, in addition to modelling, maps, and animation tools.
You can't modify the game's audio files, code, or stuff like VFX or campaign maps, but there is a lot of scope still for some pretty creative stuff to come out of this, as we've seen in previous games.
Some of the most popular mods already available include an enhanced battle camera, various AI mods and fixes, and a pretty neat Hooveric reskin.
