Hosted by Gregg Wallace, the BBC's Time Commanders is a show in which ordinary members of the public go toe to toe with the greatest generals, as they refight some of the most significant battles from history in an innovative mix of genuine history and game show competition. Here you can learn more about the games that power the depictions of each era from Total War, an award-winning PC strategy game series.
History is as yet unwritten. Whether you play as the legendary general Napoleon or against him, the outcome of war can never be guaranteed. The course of history relies on your ability to lead your troops through intense battles. Take command and lead your armies on land and sea over three campaigns: Italy, Egypt and Mastery of Europe. The seamless mix of objective-based missions and sandbox experience makes this one of the most complete Total War experiences to date.
With the territories of The Republic divided between them and the military might of Rome at their beck-and-call, the members of The Second Triumvirate are in a position to make a bid for leadership, and rule Rome as its first - and only - emperor. However, external forces are on the move, looking to exploit the instability of Rome and expand their own territories. Will you fight as a defender of Rome and defeat the other members of the Triumvirate? Or lead another faction on a campaign of conquest and expansion to take advantage of the chaos as the Roman civil war wages?
How far will you go to survive? Will you sweep oppression from the world and carve out a barbarian or Eastern kingdom of your own? Or will you brace against the coming storm as the last remnants of the Roman Empire, in the ultimate survival-strategy challenge? With new period-specific technologies, arms and armaments, religion, cultures and social upheaval, Total War: ATTILA delivers an authentic experience of this ominous chapter of our history. The Scourge of God is coming. Your world will burn.
