Empire: Total War Getting Steam-exclusive DLC

By Nick Breckon, Sep 21, 2009 9:47am PDT Despite the announcement of Napoleon: Total War, Creative Assembly isn't giving up on its Empire. In addition to a new 1.4 patch for the game, the company today announced a new downloadable campaign for Empire: Total War will be released in October.

The Native American-centric DLC will see players choosing from five new tribal factions--Iroquois, Huron, Plains, Pueblo and Cherokee--in the new Warpath Campaign.

The campaign will feature an expanded North American map, as well as new units, agents, technologies and objectives. Exclusive to Steam, the DLC can now be pre-ordered for $10.

Empire will also be updated with a 1.4 patch tomorrow. The patch adds minor fixes and two historical conflicts: the Battle of Rossbach and the Battle of Fontenoy. Thanks to mike44w for the alert.

  • Nice!
    I would have preferred the addition/expansion of an Asian or African theatre (so that Maratha confederacy would have an alternative route of land expansion other than europe/caucasus after defeating mughals) but I'm still glad to see more content being generated for this game.


    To all the people complaining, without knowing any details:
    In the past we would have been left with the original game and maybe one expansion pack. I think this is promising: a cheap but substantial addon to the campaign, with more hopefully in the pipeline.
