Total War: ARENA – Made to Fight

Total War: ARENA

Total War: ARENA is now entering Closed Alpha, and interested players can sign-up to get involved in shaping its future development.

Total War: ARENA is a free-to-play, team-based strategy game, putting players in the middle of epic-scale battles. Using key elements of award-winning Total War™ design, it is made from the ground-up for multiplayer realtime-strategy fans, with two teams of ten players going head-to-head. Each player controls three units of warriors, led by an iconic commander from history, each with their own battle style. Players level up commanders and units to open up more specialist skills, weaponry, armour and abilities. Decisive strategies, combat tactics and teamwork decide who is victorious.

Total War: ARENA

First announced at Game Developers Conference in March 2013, the game represents a new direction for the Total War franchise, and is in development by a dedicated team at Creative Assembly, focused on a purely multiplayer experience.

“We have spent time since the announcement evolving both the gameplay and the supporting technology, to ensure we deliver smooth online service for multiplayer gamers,” said Gabor Beressy, ARENA Project Lead. “We are excited to say that the game is now in Closed Alpha, and we welcome feedback from players to inform the next stages of development”.

Spiral Knights

From Heavenly wings and Stygian spikes to heavily armored cats and rabbits, the Knights of Haven have long strutted their stuff through the Clockworks in style. But sometimes, a Knight’s just got to be a Knight. Go old school with this crusader-inspired armored look for your headgear.

The Medieval War Helm is available with either Total War Battles: SHOGUN or Medieval II: Total War.

Featured: Team Fortress 2 Item

(editor’s note: please read the following in a psychotic Scottish accent for greatest accuracy)

Demoman’s Journal

There I was, holed up in the shelled and bullet-pocked remains of some backwater 2Fort. Blistered fingers from detonating remote sticky bombs were the least of my troubles. I’d been raining explosive death into every nook and cranny for a fortnight with nary dent made in the lot of ‘em when I realized, for once in my life, the answer wasn’t more explosives. I shook off this momentary yet severe existential crisis and realized that to blow them up, I first had to show them up. That’s when I reached for my King of Scotland Cape and Crown, available with any purchase of Total War Battles: SHOGUN or Medieval II: Total War. One size fits all Demomen.

Steam is Total War, Day II: Steam Workshop and Daily Deals

Total War’s weekend invasion of Steam continues! In addition to the Total War Master Collection on sale for 75% off, we have additional Team Fortress 2 and Spiral Knights items to highlight … and some awesome news for fans of Total War mods!

Total War: Shogun 2 on Steam Workshop

Total War: Shogun 2 Final Logo

One of the lasting features most-loved by our Total War community has always been the ability to mod the game and create scenarios, tweak historical accuracy, and create wholly alternate ways to play. Now, the ability to share and manage mods for Shogun 2 is available on Steam’s Workshop!

The Steam Workshop is a recently introduced feature allowing Steam community members to upload and organize mods for a wide variety of games — Total War’s long history of community support made it a natural addition and we are proud to have it there!

Daily Deals: Empire & Napoleon 75% Off

Right now, both Empire: Total War and Napoleon: Total War are 75% off!

Empire was a technological leap forward for a series that has always combined deep tactical gameplay with breathtaking technical depth, particularly on the real-time strategy battlefields. Napoleon helped refine these ideas and allows the player to put themselves into the Napoleonic Wars that tore Europe apart in the 19th century.

Keep checking back through the weekend, there’s more Daily Deals on the way.

Featured Spiral Knights Accessory: Tricorne Hat

tricorne

Whenever you buy any of the Total War games featured on Steam, you’ll get a corresponding accessory item for Spiral Knights. Today’s featured item — buy either Empire: Total War or Napoleon: Total War and get the ever so dashing tricorne hat!

This hat might as well be made of Blue Velvet because it is seriously suave. According to Wikipedia, the tricorne hat fell from its peak popularity around the year 1800, but that is bogus, because at no time is this thing not dashing. Just look at it!

Featured Team Fortress 2 Items: Distinguished Ascot / Sniper Shako

Total War - Team Fortress 2 Promo Items

Speaking of suave and distinguished, if you are one of the high society types of 18th or 19th century empire-making nations, why not also accentuate your favorite wild and crazy class-based shooter with a little haute couture neck warmer? Keep your physician in fashion and you spy supplied — in the latest style, so long as that style is this fancy neckwear. That is to say: if you buy (or happen to already own on Steam) Empire: Total War, you will receive the “Distinguished Ascot” or “Foppish Physician” accessory, usable for both the Spy and Medic classes.

Those who purchase (or already own) Napoleon: Total War, meanwhile, will arm their snipers with a jaunty stovepipe shako. If you like to put stylish things on your head and then shoot people who never even see you, this is absolutely an accessory you might want to consider acquiring.

Click here to see the items featured yesterday — they are available all weekend! Tune in each day until October 1st for additional deals.

This Weekend Total War Comes to Steam

This weekend the Total War series invades Steam! This includes Daily Deals as well as the entire Total War pack on sale until October 1st. But wait, there’s more!

In partnership with Valve’s own Team Fortress 2 and our own Spiral Knights, we are also supplying you with hats and accessories all weekend, to celebrate the games of the Total War franchise!

Spiral Knights - Total War Promo

Here’s what’s on deck for the first day of the Total War sale invasion:

Total War Master Collection

The entire Total War collection on Steam includes seven Total War games and all promotional items for Spiral Knights and Team Fortress 2. This includes the unique weapon for Team Fortress 2′s Soldier class, THE FREEDOM STAFF. It is in all caps like that because FREEDOM should always be all caps. The staff is solid gold and has an eagle on it, because that is what FREEDOM looks like when you bludgeon someone with it.

staff

 

 

Steam Daily Deal

Rome: Total War Gold is on sale for 90% Off! Get the epic game voted Best Strategy Game in 2004 by IGN, GameSpy, and Gamespot. 90% off means it can be yours for next to nothing. This is the “Gold Edition” of the game, meaning it includes the Barbarian Invasion expansion pack.

Spiral Knights

Spiral Knights

Behold, the Golden Laurel accessory! Like the Caesars of yore, cross the Rubicon and into the Clockworks in style with olive branches adorning your Knightly brow. Olive branches of solid gold, that is; regular olive branches are for chumps. Equip it in your accessory slot in Spiral Knights and show those plebeians who’s boss!

Team Fortress 2

Total War TF2 Hat

For the Heavy class, the growling animal ferocity of ferocious animal growlingness: the K-9 Mane! Nothing says heavy weapons obliteration like wearing a helmet taken from nature’s own damage dealing class, the wolf. While technically part of the Warpath campaign from Empire: Total War, we are giving away this item as part of Rome’s daily deal; it is the sort of thing a Barbarian Invasion might have, and anyway, are you going to argue with an enormous man wearing a wolf hat?

How Do I Get These Things?

To get these things you simply need to own Rome: Total War; that will give you access to both the Team Fortress 2 hat and the Spiral Knights accessory. THE FREEDOM STAFF is available only with the Master Collection.

Stay tuned – there’s more on the way each day for Total War!

Last thing: Special thanks to Steam community members [WDZ] The Ronin, BANG!, and Svdl for making this possible with their awesome collaborative work designing these Team Fortress 2 items and helping with the promotional artwork.
