Napoleon: Total War Coming in February

The Creative Assembly's Napoleonic latest entry in its large-scale warfare strategy series Total War will arrive for PC on February 23, publisher Sega has announced.

Napoleon: Total War sees players rewriting history from the general's early days in Italian and Egyptian campaigns through the ill-fated invasion of Russia, all leading to europop's favourite battle at Waterloo. Improvements are promised over Empire: Total War in areas including diplomacy, the campaign map, and land and naval battles.

The announcement is celebrated with a new trailer of mixed cinematics and gameplay, and a blog post by creative director Mike Simpsons explaining "Why Napoleon?"
