SEGA ANNOUNCES MEDIEVAL II: TOTAL WART KINGDOMS FOR THE PC
*/New Expansion for the Critically Acclaimed /*Medieval II:
Total Warâ¢/ Delves Deeper Into the New World and Beyond/
*SAN FRANCISCO** AND LONDON *(March 30, 2007) â SEGAÂ® of America, Inc.
and SEGAÂ® Europe Ltd., today announced /Medieval II: Total Warâ¢
Kingdoms/ for the PC. /Kingdoms/ takes the award-winning formula of
/Medieval II/ and expands on it, with even richer variety and deeper
historical gameplay. The inclusion of The New World campaigns has opened
up an entirely new region for players to conquer, while expanding the
game to over 75 hours of gameplay. /Medieval II: Total Warâ¢ Kingdoms/ is
slated for release in North America in August 2007.
/Medieval II: Total Warâ¢ Kingdoms/ will feature four brand new
campaigns, including an opportunity to more fully explore the New World
that was unlocked toward the end of /Medieval II/. Three additional
campaigns will focus deeper on Great Britain, Northern Europe and the
Holy Land, with many more regions than were originally shown. Featuring
13 new playable factions and over 150 new units, /Kingdoms/ will allow
players to control multiple armies on a single battlefield and lead them
into conflict with new hero characters such as Richard The Lionheart and
Saladin, each armed with new, powerful battlefield abilities. In the new
campaigns, players will use moated forts to garrison vast armies or
seize control of key strategic points and explore new technology trees,
governed by religion and prestige.
â/Medieval II: Total War/ has been a great success for SEGA and The
Creative Assembly, and critically acclaimed by consumers and journalists
alike,â said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing SEGAÂ® of
America, Inc. âAt the end of /Medieval II/ we teased gamers with a taste
of the Americas, but with /Kingdoms/ we are finally opening up the
entire New World for players to both control and conquer.â
In the Americas campaign players will be able to retrace the steps of
HernÃ¡n CortÃ©s in 1519 as he seeks to explore and conquer The New World.
Players can earn the support of Spain and explore the mystery and riches
of the New World, or take control of the Aztec or Native American
factions and call on the Gods and the bravery of vast armies to fight
off this new threat.
Players will experience a bloody clash between pagans and Christians in
the Northern European Teutonic Wars, or take control of one of five
factions in the Britannia campaign when England faces war on four fronts
as once conquered lands rise up against them. /Kingdoms /will also
include a new expanded Crusades campaign where players renew their fight
for control of the Holy Lands, with new factions, devastating new units
(such as the terrifying Greek Flame Thrower), legendary heroes and
powerful holy relics.
/Kingdoms /will also include six new multiplayer scenarios, and 20 new
Custom Battle battle maps. Each of the campaigns is also fully
compatible with a brand new Hotseat multiplayer mode, making this an
essential addition to any /Total War/ fansâ collection.
/Medieval II: Total Warâ¢ Kingdoms/ will be released for PC in fall 2007.
