Creative Assembly and SEGA have announced an new game in the Total War series.
Titled Total Wars Battle: Kingdom, the latest entry to the series seemingly follows along the same titling trend as the Total War Battles: Shogun title released for mobile platforms, and later the PC and Mac platform. Total Wars Battle: Kingdom is going to be a real-time strategy game released on tablets, PC, and Mac.
In addition, it is billed as being a free-to-play, persistent world strategy game with full cross-platform functionality. Renaud Charpentier, project lead at Creative Assembly Digital, 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.”
Although the game’s release is only listed as “coming soon,” the title is apparently approaching closed beta. Players interested in applying for the beta can do so through the Total War Battles: Kingdom website.
