    Default General TW Discussion

    TW Org,

    As you might have noticed, we have created the Total War general forum, a place where we can discuss TW in general and not necessarily reltaed to specific titles or DLCs. You might want to know more about the next title, some system requirements, or perhaps spepculate what could be the new Total War game - this is the place to do it.

    It's a general discussion board and feel free to add / ask / learn about TW in general as you see fit.

    This forum is open for business.
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    Proud

    Been to:

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming in France - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country. A novel set before the war.

    A Painted Shield of Honour - 1313. Templar Knights in France are in grave danger. Can they be saved?

    Member thankful for this post:

    I am 90% sure the next Total War game will be:
    a)Crusades
    b)American Conquest
    These two themes were absent since Medieval 2.

    Fall of the Samurai went quite well with gunpowder, it was actually pretty well received, so I would assume that a Civil War Total War would in fact be a good game / success for the team.

    I think a Civil War period would be a Saga title, really along with anything else that was in the Kingdoms expansions. I don't stake my money on a Civil War or Crusades campaign officially happening either, but time will tell. If anything I think it will be a new full bore gunpowder title (Empire 2) or possibly something in the Medieval period.

    I want to say that the next major historical title will probably bring true technical changes, but we'll have to see there too.

    A Civil War title will 150% spark more interest in the historical TW part, which right now has been essentially taken over by Warhammer and semi-fantasy TW3K. While TW3K was rather historical in the beginning, by the end with the DLC added to it, it went full fantasy.

    3K wished to splice them together in the first place. As we saw with Troy, that split didn't hold up so well. It's actually interesting to take your statement where it went full fantasy and contextualize it with the series... a desire to go half and half, going all the way because that is the taste.

    They'll need to kick that habit before any title can really appeal to history-oriented players.

    But my scruples on Civil War (assuming you mean American Civil War) regard factors of the potential game and its contents when compared to other options, aside from the simple isolated statement where yes, it would be interesting. Though probably still a Saga at most. I could get into these if you like, and we can see if they're valid or not. I haven't thought too deeply on it, but I think the issues with Civil War would overlap with reasons why various titles (such as Crusades, even Americas) would be unlikely to happen regardless (or in some ways because of) of the interest it would make.

    I find this rather problematic - the whole split up of teams between TW main team historical, TW fantasy main team, Saga teams, DLC teams... at some point, unless you have an enormous amount of developers, it's going to be disjointed. Look at Cyberpuk 2077. Huge hype, huge budget, a ton of bugs.

    It doesn't look particularly fond for historical TW in the future. It's becoming a second thought.
