Fun fact about Napoleon: he wasn’t actually as short as popular culture tells us. He was a hell of a conqueror though, and this spring, you’ll get to fill hist boots in the latest Total War chapter to come to the Mac:
The game gives players the choice to either command Napoleon’s Grande Armée and attempt to surpass the achievements of the Little Corporal himself, or else to lead one of the Four Great Powers: Great Britain, Austria, Prussia and Russia allied against him. In “Napoleon’s Campaigns” and the “Campaigns of the Coalition”, players must combine political cunning with military endeavor in order to lead their nation to victory across the campaign maps of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.
In addition to the campaign modes, Napoleon: Total War – Gold Edition features “Napoleon’s Battles”, where players can fight famous battles such as Austerlitz, Trafalgar and Waterloo in the same conditions faced by Napoleon.
The Mac version of Napoleon: Total War – Gold Edition comprises the base game and all the game updates, improvements and downloadable content, including The Peninsula Campaign, which sees Napoleon battle for control of the Iberian Peninsula against the allied forces of Spain, the United Kingdom and Portugal. It also includes three unit packs, the Imperial Eagle Pack, the Coalition Battle Pack and the Heroes of the Napoleonic Wars Pack.
The Windows flavour of the game was well-received when it launched in 2010, with Eurogamer’s Quintin Smith calling it “a healthy step forward for the Total War series”. More information will be announced nearer release, but there’s a trailer you can watch until then.
