Napoleon: Total War Demo Released

By Chris Faylor, Mar 10, 2010 4:05pm PST Got a hankering for some historical strategy but not sure if Napoleon: Total War (PC) is up your alley? Then I've got some good news: a demo is now up for grabs on Steam.

The 1990MB download includes two sections, a "War on Land" tutorial and "Battle of Ligny," with the latter offering the option to player as either France or Prussia.

Released back in February, Napoleon: Total War marked the first entry in the Creative Assembly-helmed series to feature day-one campaign multiplayer--the promised multiplayer beta for Empire: Total War arrived nearly nine months after its release--and requires Steam due to its use of the platform's Steamworks functionality.

  • I'd say that if you're new to the Total War series, you should definitely give this a try. I have Empire and love it, but that's despite it's many technical headaches. If they've taken the same engine and made it more stable, as I understand they have, then this is the game to try to get a flavor for Total War.

    I don't own Napoleon myself, insisting that I get farther into Empire than I have before I buy yet another massive scale, time sucking game, but I do want to try the demo. Particularly if they've done a better job of simulating the smoke of all the cannon and rifle fire that should obscure the battlefield more than it does in Empire.
