    The figures on the ship move, shoot from the deck and you can board ships as well! You have a choice of ammo from stanard cannon balls, to chain balls which bring down masts and grapeshot to knock out the other ships crew! Really quite something!

    Now if only they made a 20th century war game like that on the PS3 I'd be playing it now !

    It looks fun Paul :)

    The way it seems to be going (and I have this from a veteran of these games) the next thing will be the American Civil War and judging from these graphics it will be worth the wait. I'm not sure they will do 20th Century though. Its well covered by other games.

    Good to be here, with threads like these I'm sure to stick around here.
    Anyways, ask me anything about this game (gameplay wise) I know it all.

    About Total War creating a game on the 20th century, never. I don't even want to see them trying. I will never fit in with the Total War gameplay. Imagine lining up your Wehrmacht grenadiers vs the Russian stormtroopers like in Empire, no thanks. Played alot of games focussing on WW2 by RTS gameplay but it never gives me the real massive war feeling. Though I would expect a Napoleon expansion in the near future ;)

    Me is quite an expert on the campaign map, atleast the economy part is my talent. I managed to build up an Empire that makes 55,000 every turn in the year 1740. Feels good!

    Some screenshots that I like (made them myself ofcourse):

    Nevermind, all images fail. I'll post some later, too lazy to find out the problem or upload a whole bunch on a different website.

    I think it likely the ACW will be an add-on to ETW, not a seperate programme. WW1/WW2 would not really fit in with this genre of game; if anything they are likely to go back to Rome and do a RTW2 like they did with Medeival.

    Trust me on Napoleon: Total War as expansion. They've also done that with Alexander and theres a huge demand for a Napoleon game within the European community and CA has always aimed at Europe.

    Personally I would love to see Rome 2: Total War. I like the era alot and R:TW was great too, imagine what they could do with the E:TW engine.

    Yes, I think Napoleon is a possibility but the ACW is very popular in the US, and that is a huge sales market. Maybe they will do both as expansions?

    Certainly they will push the ACW in whatever format, be it an expansion or a new version. The profitbility of such in the States will make it worth its while.

    As I said before guys, CA's Total War series has always been aimed at the European playerbase. But both are possible.
    From my own experience and sources I somehow think it will be Napoleon: Total War first and after that Civil War: Total War (that sounds really bad.. Revolution: Total War maybe?)

    Is the American war of independence covered in this game in its current format??

    Yes, there is a whole seperate campaign for it. Haven't got round to that, yet. Finished the British campaign, playing the Prussians at present and "Der Alte Fritz".

    Always enjoyed playing the Prussians, any wargame of that era that I've played.

    There is a campaign called The Road To Independence. This is also very usefull to learn the basics about Empire: Total War.
    The game starts in the 17th century when you are one of the first colonizers leading the soldiers of John Smith.
    And then you have to do various conquests and you end up on the Grand Campaign map in the year that the US became independent.
