1861, while in North America troubles begins. But not only America is in conflict, in the whole world we can see what gives this game his name - TOTAL WAR!

Play with the famous civil war units like the Stonewall Brigade, the Irish Brigade, The Iron Brigade and many others. Use the new artillery units and fast firing weapons like the Gatling gun to gain victory. Lead them with historic characters like Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Thomas J. Jackson, James Longstreet, William T. Sherman and many others into the battlefield.

On the battlefield himself you will encounter the real difference to the main game. The most lethal battles you have ever seen in Empire Total War awaits you. Faster, bloodier, and at least very spectacular gameplay with unique atmospheric sounds and voices.

Fight with your armies in the bloodiest conflict ever fought on american soil. Be part of this noteworthy history with an mod that bring you nearer to it then any other game before. Based on long historic research, developed with eyewitness account.

Where ever you fight, fight with honor!
