Updating medival total war
Wage assaults against mighty castles, decimate troops with cannons, and lead your mighty kingdom to glory.
Navies can conquer poorly guarded coastal cities by themselves. Navies are now composed largely of troop carriers, designed to ram and board opposing ships, and land units can now commandeer merchant vessels as naval transport units.Battles rage across deserts, mountains, plains, and forests, from the lush grasslands of Western Europe to the arid deserts of North Africa.You can experience the Middle Ages with famous heroes, 12 playable factions, and a variety of historical campaigns.The "Forced March" stance allows an army to march further, but will tire out its men, reduce their fighting ability and leave them vulnerable to ambush; the "Defensive Stance" enables fortifications such as stakes or redoubts, and the "Ambush Stance" enables traps such as fireballs and sulphur pits.
Armies and fleets can be a maximum of 20 units, and must have a general or admiral to lead them.
Their purpose is to prevent players or the AI from slipping an invasion force right past a huge enemy fleet.
