Sega has confirmed the official release date of the next Total War
game, Napoleon: Total War
, revealing a February 26th debut for the game.
Interestingly, that means that Napoleon: Total War
is being released on the same day that Splinter Cell: Conviction
was set to hit shelves, until Ubisoft delayed the title yesterday. Also, it's my birthday.
February 26th will see the release of both the standard edition of the game and the super-special Imperial Edition too. The Imperial Edition will include some exclusive game content, such as Elite Regiments. That includes the French 5e Regiment de Hussards, the Russian Pavlograd Hussars, the Prussian 8th Life Regiment, the Austrian 47th (Czech) Regiment and the British 88th Foot "Connaught Rangers".
The Imperial Edition will also include The Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars content, which gives an extra unit for certain nations - the 7th Lancers (France), Brandeburg Uhlans (Prussia), 1st Hussars (Austria), 15th Hussars (Great Britain), 1st East Prussian Grenadier Battalion (Prussia), 6th Regiment d’Infanterie Légère (France), 17th Jäger Regiment (Russia), 1st Regiment Emperor's Own (Austria), 18th Regiment d’Infanterie de Ligne “The Brave” (France) and Moscow Musketeers (Russia).
Napoleon: Total War
is the next title in the long-running Total War
RTS and management series. The previous game in the series, Empire: Total War
, was ranked the 9th best game of 2009
