Sega's Total War Series Returns

Sega of America has announced today the return of the king of all strategy games. The Total War series will rise again this fall, in the form of Medieval 2: Total War. Developer Creative Assembly is overhauling this next installment to improve on the previous Rome: Total War. The game will feature a completely revamped version of the Rome: Total War engine offering up some stunning and very detailed graphics all while still staying true to the 10,000 troop battles that the previous game was known for. "'Medieval 2: Total War is the result of seven years continuous development of the Total War series and has been designed to appeal to all gamers, not just hardcore strategy fans,' said Mike Simpson, Studio Director at Creative Assembly. 'Each game in the series has outshone the previous one and Medieval 2: Total War is no exception.' 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. The game's exciting medieval setting will bring to life the spirit of discovery and brutal warfare that characterized the era from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, when great leaders such as King Richard the Lionheart, Saladin, and Joan of Arc moved nations to war and built Europe into a power that would drive the history of the western world for the next 1000 years. Medieval 2: Total War offers a vastly enhanced terrain model to create new graphically rich environments portraying breathtaking cliff top castles and enhanced settlement features that are unique to each civilization. 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 critically acclaimed PC strategy franchise." You can expect Medieval 2: Total War to hit store shelves in Fall 2006. Until then, we'll be sure to keep you up to date on the latest details.
