Posted February 10, 2018 by Rhys Evans in Announcements, Articles, Gaming News, News, PC

Total War: Arena is to get an open beta, which will kick off on February 22nd. The game will be the first free-to-play iteration of the Total War series, and it’ll be interesting to see how it works.


Also announced was a new faction, Carthage, who will be headed by Hannibal and Hasdrubal Barca, both legendary historical leaders. Hannibal in particular gives units a speed advantage, allowing players to set up ambushes and run rings around the enemy. Hasdrubal on the other hand buffs your units, whilst debuffing enemy units, meaning both leaders have their own unique strengths.

I've been a gamer for as long as I can remember. My first console was a Sega Megadrive, and my first game was Streets of Rage. I've recently graduated with a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing at Cardiff Met University. I'm a fan of role-playing games and first-person shooters, but these days you can usually find me building cities in Minecraft. My favourite games are The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Bioshock.
