A real act of kindness.
A fan with terminal leukemia has been granted his dying wish to play Total War: Three Kingdoms by the game’s developer, Creative Assembly.
Yesterday, Reddit user TheMissingLink5 posted a message on the Total War subreddit explaining that his younger brother, who had been diagnosed with leukemia last year, has just days left to live. His brother is a fan of the Total War games, and hoped to play the latest historical entry in the series – Total War: Three Kingdoms – before he passes away.
Unfortunately his doctors are unsure if he will make it until the game’s May 24 release date next week, and so TheMissingLink5 sought help on Reddit. Within hours, Creative Assembly’s influencer manager, James Given, and community manager, Grace Carroll, reached out to him and sent a key for Total War: Three Kingdoms.
TheMissingLink5 updated the Reddit post to show photographs of his brother playing the game, showing that Creative Assembly had helped make his wish a reality. In the face of upsetting news, this quick reaction from the Total War team has brought some happiness to a family in trying times.
