First announced at Game Developers Conference in March 2013, the game represents a new direction for the Total War franchise.

In Total War: Arena each player controls three units of warriors, led by an iconic commander from history, each with their own battle style. Players level up commanders and units to open up more specialist skills, weaponry, armour and abilities.
