Total War Arena - First look headlogo - EN

This weekend we took out some time to play the new online RTS Total War: Arena from Creative Assembly, the coop PVP free to play MMO using the same style of gameplay from the previous Total War game franchise where players step in the shoes of a great Commander and control a small portion of the greater army working with 9 other players.

In our First Look we check out a battle as Leonidas of Sparta in a 10v10 battle for base control and show the benefits of terrain and ranged versus infantry in a quick matchup as well as looking over the various customization elements of building up your forces and customizing them. Check out our video and let us know what you think of the game in the comments.
