Empire: Total War Trailer and Release Date (and a rant)

July 11th, 2008 by Troy Goodfellow · 2 Comments · Creative Assembly

I’ve been tapped to see a lot of cool stuff at E3, but Empire: Total War is near the top of my own list of curiosities. We now have a release window of February 2009 (sigh) and a movie trailer that tells us nothing about the game, showing no gameplay at all.

I sort of get why companies put out movie trailers for their games, but I’d much rather see a screenshot of something I can use or expect than ten seconds of a naval battle and some vague allusions to the French revolution.

    Didn’t seem overly vague, really… ;)

    I don’t care – I’m excited already.

    The trailer leaves me confused about whether or not the gameplay will include naval engagements. That said, I guess a trailer is better than nothing.
