Total War Delay Brings Multiplayer Campaign Mode

The one-month delay of Creative Assembly's Empire: Total War (PC) has provided a surprise bonus: the eventual addition of a full campaign multiplayer mode to the strategy title.

"The additional time will allow us to implement the underlying technology for a much desired feature; a multiplayer campaign mode," wrote Creative Assembly's Mark O'Connell on the company's official forums. "An opportunity to participate in the 1 versus 1 multiplayer campaign mode beta will be made available to all Empire Total War buyers post release."

The feature will mark the first time that the Total War series has allowed for multiplayer within the expansive campaign mode.

        Oh snap, thought it was co-op, but looks like it's just a special 1 on 1 thing. Oh well, maybe we'll see that for a future game.
