SAN FRANCISCO (November 13, 2006) - SEGA® of America Inc. today announced the North American release of Medieval II: Total War for the PC. Developed by The Creative Assembly, this visually stunning game spans four and half centuries of the most turbulent era in Western history and provides players the reins to experience and rewrite one of the most fascinating periods of history to become the greatest power of the Middle Ages.
Medieval II: Total War drives the Total War franchise to a new level by completely upgrading the game's battlefield rendering system, eliminating the clone armies of the past games in the series and including a new, more realistic animation system. With over 10,000 troops now to command and hundreds of unit types, players can experience massive battles in graphically rich environments enhanced by dynamic weather effects and vastly diverse terrain. Leading armies across Europe, the Middle East, and even the Americas, players will encounter brutal real-time battles and the pure bloodlust of medieval warfare. As players progress, they will shape their empires by strategically determining whether to build castles for military power or cities for technology and trade, allowing for a greater depth of gameplay.
Medieval II: Total War for the PC is rated "T" for "Teen" by the Entertainment Software Review Board and has an MSRP of $49.99. For more information on the game, please visit www.totalwar.com. Screenshots and artwork can be found on the SEGA FTP site at http://segapr.segaamerica.com/
