Napoleon: Total War is a curious game. It doesn’t have the grand scope of Empire: Total War, but it does have a lot of clever new ideas going for it. There’s not a lot of variety if you don’t fancy playing as the diminutive Frenchman himself though, which is why we’ve rounded up the best mods we can find for the game. Fancy re-enacting Zulu? Or trying your hand at Total World War 1? Then check inside.
The latest edition of Creative Assembly’s Rally Point vodcast is now available, with a behind-the-scenes look at Napoleon: Total War to celebrate the release of all the retailer exclusive and collector’s edition DLC on Steam. It’s packed full of little tidbits about the games - for example, Lead Writer Mike Brunton revealed that the typical Total War game features between 150,000 and 300,000 words. And that they’re not all ‘chaaaaaaarge!’ You can watch the video after the cut.
Where does Napoleon keep his armies? On Steam, that's where. Sega has today released two new unit packs for Napoleon: Total War, making available units that were previously only available as either pre-order bonuses or to those who purchased special editions of the game. The Imperial Eagle Pack includes the Pavlograd Hussars, the Royal Scots Greys and the HMS Elephant. Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars meanwhile features even more Hussars alongside the Brandenburg Uhlans. What's a Brandenburg Uhlan? I don't know but it sounds delicious.
