SEGA today announced Total War Battles: KINGDOM; a new strategy game that is currently in development by Creative Assembly’s Digital Team, creators of 2012’s Golden Cube-winning Total War Battles: SHOGUN. Total War Battles: KINGDOM will be a free-to-play, persistent-world strategy game, in which players will be able to rule their home kingdom across multiple platforms.
Total War Battles: KINGDOM is coming to PC, Mac and tablets, and gamers can apply to try out the game now in a PC Closed Beta.
Total War Battles: KINGDOM is set during the chaotic turn of the 10th Century. The game will combine realm-building with large-scale tactical battles, and players will find themselves managing the needs of their own fiefdom as they marshal formidable armies with which to duel against neighbouring kingdoms.
As SEGA claimed via a press release:
“Ultimately, players will be able to join in massed multiplayer wars against other lords in a fight for the throne. Deception, spying and outright betrayal against enemies and friends alike will see the devious player rewarded.”
Renaud Charpentier, CA Digital Project Lead, said:
“Adding depth, persistency, and learning from our experience with Total War Battles: SHOGUN, we wanted to create a new way of playing Total War Battles. Whether that’s on the move or at work over lunch. It shouldn’t matter where you want to play, we want to make it easy to come back again and again to your flourishing Kingdom. Then, we ramp up the complexity and challenge, adding more options to your Machiavellian schemes.”
