Medieval 2: Total War Announced

SEGA announced Medieval 2: Total War. The Total War franchise has been a popular choice among strategy gamers and has received critical acclaim whilst selling 3.5 million units to date. This, the 4th instalment of the franchise, takes the genre further with what developers promise will be the most epic and cinematic 3D battles ever seen on PC.

Medieval 2: Total War is the latest release from the highly acclaimed developer, The Creative Assembly, who SEGA made headline news by acquiring in 2005. The game boasts an impressive array of new graphical and gameplay enhancements, including the capability for a massive 10,000 dynamic characters to be taken into battle at any one time. On top of this, The Creative Assembly have implemented a fully redesigned multiplayer mode that offers a dynamic multi-battle campaign bolstered by an unprecedented level of visceral combat choreography that reflects the brutality of medieval warfare.

Medieval 2: Total War is the result of 7 years continuous development of the Total War series and has been designed to appeal to all gamers, not just hardcore strategy fans. commented Mike Simpson, Studio Director at Creative Assembly.

Set in the most turbulent and bloody era in European history, Medieval 2: Total War will allow gamers to lead their armies across the battlefields of Europe and the Holy Land before discovering the Americas and doing battle with the fearsome Aztecs.

Medieval 2: Total War offers a vastly enhanced terrain model to create new graphically rich environments portraying cliff top castles and enhanced settlement features that are unique to each civilisation. Over 200 new units, greater depth in siege warfare, new weaponry and a highly detailed building damage model all combine to make Medieval 2: Total War the best version of the PC's greatest strategy game ever made.

Medieval 2: Total War will be released in winter 2006. For more information follow the download tab above.
