Total War: Arena Video Game

Total War: Arena
  • genre: Strategy

  • developer: Creative Assembly
  • publisher: SEGA
  • platform: PC

Total War: Arena is an online strategy game that combines elements of RTS (Real-Time strategy) and MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genres. It is a spin-off of the bestselling Total War series initiated back in 2000 with the release of Shogun: Total War. Contrary to its predecessors, it is not set in any particular historical period; instead, it lets the players assume the role of numerous commanders from different ages.

The goal of the game is to take over the enemy base or to cut down all opposing forces. The gameplay has a significant tactical depth to it – skillful cooperation between teammates is therefore key to victory. In practice, each co-player is responsible for combat activities taking place in “his” part of the map, although we often have to come to our ally’s aid when his units cannot hold their ground, thus the outcome of the battle does not depend on one player’s actions but all of them.
