Total War: Three Kingdoms tackles the turbulence of 3rd century China

Total War has been enjoying its time among the greenskins and the undead, but we've been waiting to see exactly which period it'd land in when it returns to its historical roots for its next major installment. Now the answer is here. Total War: Three Kingdoms. The year is 190CE. China is in turmoil. The Han Dynasty crumbles before the child-emperor. He is but a…

The Best And Worst Total War Games

At its best, the Total War series casts a spell over you. Your empire rises from nothing, surrounded by enemies who are poised to trample it into the dust.

To Battle! Empire & Napoleon Made Moddable

A source of what could gently be called discontent amongst the Total War community of late has been the lack of modding tools for the most recent games. Empire, Napoleon and Total War have all been bereft of official utilities to alter and add units, maps et al, which was partly a result of the relevant files being compressed and thus tricky to edit. At…

Huzzah! Hussars! Total Forumitude

We follow any lead if it'll take us to a story, including our own comment threads where Creative Assembly's Craig Laycock writes to say that they've launched their new Total War Forum. "I couldn't/could care less!" depending on what side of the pacific you're on, you may say. But if you do, says Creative Assembly, you get a personalised War Room where you can see…

I’m The King Of Spain: Peninsular Campaign

So, the next Campaign for Napoleon: Total War will be in Sunny Spain. Top level features? New 32-region campaign map, a playable Spain and new agents (Priests, Guerrilla and the fancy-underwear-devotees of the Agent Provacteurs). You'll find the full press-release below, which leaves me just time to say "Napoleon? Short fella, yes?" to wind up the historical purists before I press "Post". My work here…

Napoleon: Partial War

Demo! Demo! Demo! Demo of a strategy game! Being a gentleman who tends towards robots and explosions in his real-time strategy games and turn-based in his historical strategy games, I remain a little unclear as to whether Napoleon: Total War is a brand new game, or a cleverly-marketed standalone expansion. Or both. All I know is that Quinns quite liked it. There's a demo out…

The Year Ahead, Part One

Below is the first part of our intricate guide for PC gaming in 2010. There's a horde of muscular-looking titles on the horizon, many of them likely to stop you and demand your money, like ludological bandits.

A Grander Armée: Napoleon: Total War Announced

Sadly, there's no room for a "Aren't You A Little Short For A Dictator?" gag in the subject line. C'est la vie, as Napoleon might have said with a Gallic flourish. News breaks from the European Land-Mass Videogameisual Show that - as perhaps expected - Creative Assembly are adding using the tiny tyrant as their next step on from Empire: Total War. CA's interview with…
