A new series in the Total War franchise, Empire: Total War maintains the series' genre-leading 3D battles, grand turn-based campaign map and rich historical flavor while for the first time introducing 3D naval combat into the series. The game is set in the 18th century, a turbulent era alive with global conflict, revolutionary fervour and technological advances. Empire: Total War sees the debut of 3D naval combat -- gamers will be able to intuitively command vast fleets or single ships 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 your men as they fight hand to hand on the decks.


  • 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: Control the fate of the United States of America, from its revolution against the British to overcoming the challenges of a young independent nation.
  • Brand new multiplayer component: includes player rankings, leagues and ladders, and completely new gameplay modes.
  • All new graphics engine and technology: features staggering real-time seascapes, new advanced landscape and flora systems, and dynamic weather.

So I played this almost non stop for days on end... it's very addictive, but performance gets SLOW as your empire grows. EmpireTotalWar
