Napoleon: Total War Gets Campaign Multiplayer

By Chris Faylor, Jan 20, 2010 2:20pm PST With owners of Empire: Total War currently beta testing the promised addition of campaign multiplayer, publisher SEGA has announced that the latest entry in the series, Napoleon: Total War (PC), will sport that functionality when it hits on February 23.

"For the first time in Total War history, the Campaign Mode in Napoleon: Total War will feature both single player and multiplayer modes," SEGA wrote of the latest from its historical strategy series developer The Creative Assembly.

The game's three campaigns--Italy, Egypt and Europe--will support two-person competitive and/or cooperative online multiplayer, with the game also getting a one-versus-one matchmaking feature in the form of "drop-in battles," where enemies can be "controlled in real-time by an online adversary."

No word as to when Empire's multiplayer will leave beta, though creative director Mike Simpson noted that the company has seen "great feedback...from our fans for the Empire Multiplayer Campaign Beta" and wishes to thank them "for all their support."
