<big>[[Empire: Total War]] is a game in the [[Total War]] series developed by the [[Creative Assembly]]. 
 +
<br>Released in March 2009 and is published by Sega. It is set in the 18th century and includes features such as the Industrial Revolution, America's struggle for independence and the colonization of India. For the first time in a Total War game, players have the ability to play real-time 3D naval battles. Also a feature that had been developed in the game was the decentralisation of provinces, adding greater realism in that many features, from production to technological advancement, would now occur outside of the capital of the province. It was the first in the series to use Valve Corporation's Steamworks DRM and achievements system, thereby requiring Steam to be played. It was the first to use Total war Engine 3 which included the [http://blogs.sega.com/totalwar/2009/03/05/empire-total-war-graphics-work-shop/ Warscape Engine].

In September 2009, an expansion titled The '''Warpath Campaign''' [http://store.steampowered.com/app/10606/?snr=1_5_9__405 (Steam)] was announced for release the following month. The campaign, released as downloadable content, focuses on the battles of the Europeans and Native Americans throughout most of North and Central America. The new campaign expands the North American territories and features 5 new playable factions: Iroquois, Cherokee, Huron, Pueblo and Plains Nations. New researchable technologies were also added, along with the new scout and shaman agents and new faction-specific objectives.
[[Empire: Total War]] is the fifth game in the esteemed and critically acclaimed [[Total War]] Series. Developed by the [[Creative Assembly]], the [[:Category:Total War Series|Total War Series]] brings together elements of real time strategy and turn based game play. This incarnation is set in the 18th century and for the first time includes Naval Battles.

The AER mod is an overhaul of ETW with the aim to improve gameplay and add immersion to the vanilla game. The mod is focused on history and realism within the limits the CA source data and game engine provides. I have tried to keep AER modular, so it can be played alongside other mods that change other aspects of the ETW game.

Picking up where the original mod team finished, Imperial Splendour aims to bring the best Empire Total War experience to you while maintaining the essence of the game, and adding evolutions throughout the period (Early Middle Late) making the units change their appearance according to the years. The Factions have been changed to make each faction have their own unique abilities, with reworked battle mechanics, naval mechanics and the recruitment system and more.

The Empire: Total War mod Colonialism 1600 AD takes the Empire: Total War clocks back a century.  This mod attempts to, as best as possible, change the units and battle mechanics of Empire: Total War to 1600 AD.  Beyond the aesthetic changes to unit appearances, Colonialism 1600 AD also changes the musket loading time and gives more availability (as well as a higher price) for armored units, and more.  Find out more on the Colonialism 1600 AD forum [http://www.twcenter.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?2046 here].

Welcome to Empire: Total War on the TWC

Empire wiki banner2.png



Empire: Total War is a game in the Total War series developed by the Creative Assembly.
Released in March 2009 and is published by Sega. It is set in the 18th century and includes features such as the Industrial Revolution, America's struggle for independence and the colonization of India. For the first time in a Total War game, players have the ability to play real-time 3D naval battles. Also a feature that had been developed in the game was the decentralisation of provinces, adding greater realism in that many features, from production to technological advancement, would now occur outside of the capital of the province. It was the first in the series to use Valve Corporation's Steamworks DRM and achievements system, thereby requiring Steam to be played. It was the first to use Total war Engine 3 which included the Warscape Engine.

In September 2009, an expansion titled The Warpath Campaign (Steam) was announced for release the following month. The campaign, released as downloadable content, focuses on the battles of the Europeans and Native Americans throughout most of North and Central America. The new campaign expands the North American territories and features 5 new playable factions: Iroquois, Cherokee, Huron, Pueblo and Plains Nations. New researchable technologies were also added, along with the new scout and shaman agents and new faction-specific objectives.

The AER mod is an overhaul of ETW with the aim to improve gameplay and add immersion to the vanilla game. The mod is focused on history and realism within the limits the CA source data and game engine provides. I have tried to keep AER modular, so it can be played alongside other mods that change other aspects of the ETW game. For more information, Please visit here .
