It's no secret that we're all fans of the Total War series. If you have listened to the podcast then you know that it is certainly an office favourite. It comes as no surprise that we're excited that SEGA has announced a new Total War game that will be free to play. Dubbed Total War: Arena, the game will give players a chance to use history's greatest commanders and their armies in some giant team based battles

They announced Total War: Arena at GDC and also told us a little bit about it. The game will feature 10v10 battles, with each player controlling three units. Players will be able to both earn and purchase items in-game. The game will be a cross between a multiplayer online battle arena and a massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

The developer is experimenting with changes to the Total War formula, focusing on changes like manual aim, charges and active firing, all of which are influenced by the MOBA genre. 

The whole thing sounds really promising. Closed beta tests are also planned so sign up at totalwar.com/arena to be the first to try this game and help this game reach its full potential!
