Look for a nod to noted Total Warhammer 2 fan Henry Cavill in its next DLC

When he's not playing everyone's favourite Rivia man in Netflix's The Witcher, Henry Cavill likes to chill out with some Total War: Warhammer 2. It's a fact that hasn't gone unnoticed by Creative Assembly, either. They've only gone and put a nod to him in the game's upcoming DLC, The Warden & The Paunch. And there's even a Witcher reference thrown in there for good…

Total War: Elysium trailer shows the card game looking Hearthstone-y

Here’s how game developers are handling the Covid-19 outbreak

Over the last week or so, game developers and publishers around the world have been announcing their action plans amidst the Covid-19 outbreak. Bungie have offered advice to other companies, Ubisoft said Rainbow Six Siege might miss a few patches, and many others have sent their employees home, dev kits in hand, to make sure production plods along, all the while doing their part to…

UK game devs share concerns about the loss of community during the Covid-19 pandemic

The games industry has been hit pretty hard from the Covid-19 pandemic. Most events this side of the year have been cancelled or postponed, and now hundreds of workers being urged to work from home (including all of us here at RPS). The impact of this style of working will be different for everyone, so I spoke with some UK studios to see how they're…

Total War: Three Kingdoms faces the sins of its fathers with today’s A World Betrayed DLC

Dropping today, the new A World Betrayed Chapter Pack adds two new factions, a new time period and some brand new units - but really, it's all about those rascals Sun Ce…

Total War: Warhammer 2 invites players to an “extreme” experimental beta

Total War: Warhammer 2 has had its share of updates and DLCs over the last several years. Creative Assembly say that each new pack of Lords and other content make it increasingly challenging to change balance between units without upending the entire house of cards. Instead of slowly rolling out more conservative changes, Creative Assembly are going a bit more radical. They've invited players to…

Feature: Music to slip off to

The best video game music to fall asleep to

Sleep and games are among my favourite things. Certainly they're the biggest occupiers of my time, and thanks to my collection of chronic ailments they often overlap. I have always struggled with sleep, you see. It doesn't happen regularly, nor when I invite it. It simply comes when it comes (I've tried whatever you're about to suggest, thanks), and I've learned that it's best to…

Total War: Three Kingdom’s Mandate Of Heaven brings a new starting time

Creative Assembly roll back the clock of Total War: Three Kingdoms in the new expansion released today, letting players start eight years earlier in a wee prequel campaign then keep that same save on rolling through regular history.

The Elder Scrolls: Total War brings some much-needed spectacle to Tamriel’s scuffles

Like any big daft fantasy blockbuster, The Elder Scrolls needs war. Unfortunately, Bethesda's open-world games have never been too great at the whole mass battle thing. Even Skyrim's nation-rending civil war never amounted to much more than a gathering of drunk LARPers waving sharp sticks at each other in the snow. The Elder Scrolls: Total War - a complete overhaul to Medieval 2: Total War…

Feature: Tzeench approves of all this change.

Modder Superior – Total War: Warhammer II

If mega-scale fantasy violence is your thing, Total War: Warhammer 2 (Total Warhammer to its friends) is a grand old time, and an affordable alternative to wasting your savings on miniatures. Earlier Total War games arguably needed mods to shine, but Creative Assembly's recent output hasn't had to lean so hard on user-made expansions and refinements. Not that this has stopped players from trying. While…
