Empire: Total War is a game that goes back a few hundred years to have you take the role of a Founding Father, fighting a wide variety of battles. It includes both RTS and turn-based strategy across multiple game modes, and uses muted, earthy colours to emphasize its setting, founded in real history. It is part of the acclaimed Total War series.

A War Waged On Multiple Fronts

Compared to other Total War titles, Empire provides the player with a lot of units to learn about but few to use at any given time. A player of Empire must be flexible, as the style of gameplay can change multiple times in one session. Series vets will mostly be familiar with the campaign map, which is similar to Shotgun et al.

A Totally Difficult Choice

Overall, Empire: Total War is a game of contrasts. Despite excellent design in both halves of gameplay and in graphics, the player has little ability to choose how they play: they cannot favour real-time or turn-based gameplay, as the game requires both. Combine that with sometimes simplistic and blocky graphics compared to contemporary titles, and you have a game that's great for strategy and RTS buffs, but may not appeal to less hardcore players.

The best military strategy game has returned

Dominate the 18th century on land and sea. Command the seas, control the land, forge a new nation, and conquer the globe. Empire: Total War takes the Total War franchise to the eighteenth century Age of Enlightenment ? a time of political upheaval, military advancements, and radical thought, captured in stunning detail in Empire: Total War.
Empire: Total War introduces a host of revolutionary new features, including true 3D naval combat. For the first time in the Total War series, you will be able to intuitively command single ships or vast fleets upon seascapes rich with extraordinary water and weather effects that play a huge role in your eventual glorious success or ignominious defeat. After pummelling your enemy with cannon fire, close in to grapple their ship and prepare to board, taking control of your men as they fight hand-to-hand on the decks of these wooden behemoths.
In addition, Empire: Total War will see further enhancements to the Total War series’ signature 3D battles and turn-based campaign map. Real-time battles will pose new challenges with the addition of cannon and musket, challenging players to master new formations and tactics as a result of the increasing role of gunpowder within warfare. And the Campaign Map ? for many, the heart of Total War ? introduces a variety of new and upgraded elements, including new systems for Trade, Diplomacy and Espionage with agents; a refined and streamlined UI; improved Advisors; and a vastly extended scope, taking in the riches of India, the turbulence of Europe and, for the first time, the untapped potential of the United States of America.

  • Take command on the high seas. New real-time 3D naval warfare takes Total War's unparalleled battle action to the high seas, with players commanding single ships or vast fleets.
  • Become a founding father. Starting in 1700 ? The era of warfare across oceans, revolution and the founding of the United States.
  • All new graphics engine and technology features staggering real-time seascapes, new advanced landscape and flora systems, and dynamic weather.
