Napoleon Total War - Confirmed Information Here only!

Postby Marshal Beale » Sun Oct 18, 2009 6:52 am

Here is a list from TWC. This post is for confirmed information only!
All comments please be made in seperate topics!

General Info


Engine: New game, engine (Warscape) based on ETW's 1
PC only 1
System requirements: same as ETW 4
Status: pre-alpha (20/08/09) 1
Scheduled release date: February 26th, 2010 1
Estimated price: £24.96 / €28.38 (source)
Distribution: Retail (SEGA) and on-line (Steam) 2
Development: CA UK studio (source)


Features

Battlefield:

322 units 1, with new art and models for every unit and uniform (source)
max 10,000 men per battle 1
64 different faces on lowest settings 1
Ability to repair minor damage to ships during battle 1
Seasonal changes during game, affecting the weather which will affect gameplay (rain affecting gunpowder weapons etc) 3
Generals more important, now with a morale-boosting aura effect 1
Napoleon has special "warcry" ability that boosts nearby allied troops morale 5
All Napoleon's major battles available as historical scenarios, playable with either side

Campaign:

Campaigns: Three episodic story-driven campaigns; Italy (1796-1797), Middle-East (1798 - 1801) and Mastery of Europe (Grand Campaign) (1805 - 1812), told through in-game cutscenes, with available side missions 1 3 6
Playable factions: France (all campaigns), Britain, Russia, Austria, Prussia and other major factions (Mastery of Europe) 5 6
Each turn equals 2 weeks 1
Campaign maps massively scaled up, featuring many new provinces (source) and different areas and features, depending on the campaign played. 6
Selection of generals from a list, each one with his own attributes 1
Attrition system; spending time in tough terrain or hostile territory will wear down your units and whittle their numbers, while constructing depots and building up conquered farms secures supplies5
Ability to plunder resources, that will net you more and faster than occupying them, but will make local population unhappy.
Settlement diversification: Industrial towns focused on arms, armaments and producing extra troops, economic towns producing cash and increasing supplies 5 and intellectual towns making people happier and spawning spies (replacement for rakes with passive, area-of-effect espionage skills). 4
New resources that don't provide income but other advantages remain, eg taking a particularly effective horse-breeding area improves your cavalry strength. 5
New diplomacy options, such as getting other nations to fight each other 5

Technical:

Fully integrated multiplayer modes and a complete set of online functionalities: Steam achievements, gameplay bonuses, uniform editor and voice communications 6
Napoleon will also integrate into Empire, adding units and new tech trees appropriately as the timeline progresses 4 and upgrading it with the new engine 3

Maybe a DLC? They want us to pay more than once for each game you know. :wink:

The campaign of waterloo is available to play as a standalone thing after the grand campaign.

Where did you find the 10 000 men max on battlefield? I have not heard of that before. All previous TW games allowed more than that on the battlefield, are they going backwards? as armies grew theirs shrunk?

Not to worry VC, RTW was advertised to have up to 10,000 men on screen, same with ETW and MTW2! SO I'm sure you can have more, it just sounds impressive from CA's point of view!
