Total War Blog

We’re nearly there with Thrones of Britannia now, and a few weeks back we invited some press and influencers to play the latest build. We let them loose with the factions of Gwined (Wales), Circenn (Scots), and Northymbre (post-Wedmore landed-gentry Vikings. Plot twist: still angry!). As this is the first in what we hope will be a series of Total War Saga titles, we are – understandably we hope – anxious to get it right, and we’ve been encouraged to hear the positive reactions to the many changes we’re making while we panel-beat the ATTILA engine into a leaner, sportier, more Anglo-Saxon shape. It’s been a delight to read and watch many of those impressions so far.

As we barrel towards spring at an alarming rate, Jack Lusted and his team have been busy working away on their new project, and we have a slew of new information to bring you. We recently invited press and content creators into our humble abode to take a sneak-peek at our first ever Total War Saga title, Thrones of Britannia. We handed over control of the faction of Mide, Our Irish Gaelic Kingdom led by King Flann Sinna, and our guests got their first taste of post-Viking-invasion Britannia, through the Total War lens. So, keep your eyes peeled for articles and videos from your favourite press outlets and content creators as they start appearing today, and we’ll have more on the Gaelic Kingdoms to show you ourselves in the next few weeks. But for now…

November has been announcemageddon for CA, to be sure. With the Empire Divided Campaign Pack for ROME II plus our first Total War Saga title Thrones of Britannia both in the works, it would be easy to think we’re in some way sidelining WARHAMMER II, but nothing could be further from the truth.

With Mortal Empires released last week, there’s a hotfix on the way for that Chaos Invasion issue some people are having. We want to make sure that’s sorted out before we add more Total War: WARHAMMER content.

 

However, in this week’s blog we wanted to take a moment to look at our Historical projects; because you’re about to hear a lot more about them.

 

The next year is packed with new stuff and, as we ramp up for some big announcements, I took a moment to chat with our history project directors; Maya, Jack and Janos…

Released in under a month on the 28th September, we are pleased to say that at this point Total War: WARHAMMER II is the most pre-ordered Total War game to date.

“We’re in the final stage of development now and very excited by the comments coming out of our closed testing and mock reviews,” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director, “loads of love for the new features, races and the sheer volume of gameplay. Great to see that expectation reflected in the number of pre-orders being placed, it really helps motivate us for that final push.”

With the game now nearing release, system specs and a range of new graphical features to enrich players’ experiences in the New World can be revealed.

These include:

  • Improved Screen Space Ambient Occlusion (SSAO)
  • New volumetric fog system which thickens the air, producing god-ray effects
  • New sharpening filter
  • Impressive wet-look surfaces, appropriate to certain models and model features

Today we’re thrilled to announce a new class of historical Total War game. Released under a new badge, Total War Saga games will be standalone spin-off titles focusing on exciting pivotal moments in history rather than whole historical eras.

I sat down with the game director on our first Total War Saga game, Jack Lusted, to find out what kind of Total War experience fans can expect from his team.

This week we’re celebrating a massive 17 YEAR anniversary of the birth of Total War! Way back in the year 2000, on the 13th of June, Creative Assembly released their breakout title in Shogun: Total War. It was a revolutionary blend of turn based, empire building strategy and real-time, detailed battles with hundreds of men. The game focused on the rich and fascinating period of Japanese feudal history known as the Sengoku period which would later be revisited in Total War: Shogun 2.

In June of 2000, Elliott Chin had this to say for Gamespot-

“Shogun has a great subject, and a perfect melding of strategic and tactical gameplay. The strategy portion is simple but very engrossing, while the tactical battles are very realistic, challenging, and entertaining exercises in military tactics. Shogun is a difficult game even on the default setting – but what’s so great is that the challenge is grounded on the basic, real-world tenets and common wisdom of warfare. Spreading yourself too thin is an invitation for disaster; alliances cannot be trusted for long; feigning weakness is one of the few ways to goad your opponents to overextend themselves; and so on. When you get beaten in battle or outmaneuvered on the strategic map, in hindsight it’ll be clear to you why you lost and thus easier for you to figure out how to do better the next time. Shogun is a very enjoyable game, as it keeps you honest by punishing you for your mistakes and richly rewarding you for your well-thought-out successes.”

The next title in CA’s thrilling fantasy-strategy series has an official release date: September 28th 2017. Set in a whole new part of the Warhammer world, it introduces four new playable races in a storming narrative campaign that builds to an earth-shattering crescendo.

Also available in a special limited edition, anyone ordering before release or buying in the first week on sale will gain an Early Adopter bonus of a free Race Pack DLC for the original Total War: WARHAMMER.

This yet-to-be-revealed content for the first game will be out and playable before the second game is released.
