    Default What happens when you win Grand Campaign

    What exactly happens when you beat the game, does it unlock anything? I was probably 3 to 5 turns away from beating the game with my GB long campaign but then at the end of one turn in particular (Year 1773) I got a repeating CTD that I can't stop no matter how I end the turn (changed diplomacy, rearanged troops, ect..) Bummer because I really wanted to see what was in store if I finished the game out. I had high hopes the latest patch would prevent these types of CTDs but I guess we still have a little bit to go.

    No, you don't get anything. What did you think you would get?

    Cool store, bro! I want some ham.
    No ham, pepsi.
    They make deli slices of frozen pepsi now? Awesome!
    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?

    I was thinking that maybe it would unlock a new playable nation or something like that.....

    Well, the website lists 12 playable factions, and you can play all 12 from the start (US withstanding)

    Why would they tell an outright lie?

    Only thing you unlock in the game is Achievements.

    Wow, you are really interested in this. I was not sure how you unlocked the US as the 12th. I heard you got it by beating something in the game and I assumed this was either RTI or Grand Campaign. Now that I know nothing happens when you beat Grand Campaign it obviously unlocks if you beat RTI. I assume this where you post "the website said US is unlocked after you beat RTI, why would you assume the webpage would lie to you". Aside from unlockables, I was curious if the game had a cool closing video sequence or something like that. Thank you for keeping me updated to what the website said, it was most helpful.

    Because they must have a marketing department?

    Out of interest is there an end movie? Or is it more like the previous TW's?

    As for unlocking factions, this mod is the one I used.

    It works like it does in Rome Total War, where a box comes up, with a little movie saying you won with the choice of going to main menu or continuing.

    Hmm.. I think I may have come off a bit *****y there.

    My point is, that if we unlocked factions for completing the GC, it would be a pretty big deal, and would be announced by CA. It wouldn't be the sort of thing they would leave us in the dark about.

    I am with you, I was pretty certain there was nothing special if you won. I guess when you are having a hard time getting one of your campaigns past the CTDs to actually finish, in a state of frustration you start to imagine all types of cools things that might happen if you can just go a few more turns and win. :-)
