After about four years The Creative Assembly the developers of the Total War franchise have once again released their multiplayer campaign beta for people to try out in Empire: Total War. This is great news as even with Total War: Rome II coming out soon its good that the developers are still remembering their old games and Empire Total War is in my opinion the last great Total War game since the days of Medieval: Total War and Rome: Total War or at least the one I played the most in recent years. I didn’t get much into Total War: Shogun 2 even if it was quite good and mechanically sound.
I might check out Alpha Protocol, it was over hyped and turned out quite poor but for the price it should be worth it. I can pretend I’m playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Steam and The Creative Assembly “March to War” campaign, which is being run to promote the release of Total War: Shogun 2 next week is on its final day. Napoleon: Total War Imperial Edition is available at 75% off (
£19.99/£5.00) which is a bargain for the money spend to time played ratio (£5/60+ hours). Sure it’s very similar to Empire: Total War but it still good in its own right.
Imperial Edition includes:
- Napoleon: Total War™ – Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars (Free)
- Napoleon: Total War™ – Imperial Guard Pack (Free)
- Napoleon: Total War™ – The Peninsular Campaign (£5.99
- Napoleon: Total War™ – Coalition Battle Pack (£1.99)
So you can get the whole Napoleon: Total War™ experience for £12.98.
Sega said today that Empire: Total War and Napoleon: Total War are going to be combined in a Gold pack for release later this year. The new edition will be available on October 19 for £30.
Both games and all their DLC will be included in the edition. That means you’ll get Elite Units of the East, Elite Units of the West, Elite Units of America, and the Warpath Campaign for Empire, and The Peninsular Campaign, Coalition Battle Pack, and the Elite Regiment for Napoleon.
