Conquer, rule and manipulate the Roman Empire with the ultimate goal of being declared as the "Imperator" of Rome. Set in a time when the mighty Roman Empire emerged to conquer the known world against powerful enemies, when gladiators fought to a bloody death in the Coliseum; when Spartacus defied the might of the empire; when Hannibal led his invincible army and his war elephants across the Alps to strike fear into the very heart of Rome itself; and when Julius Caesar finally smashed the Barbarian Gauls. This was a time of brutal confrontation between civilisation and barbarism, and of civil war as the ancient world's only superpower turned on itself.
NTW2 is mainly focused at MP games and historical scripted battles.
NAPOLEONIC TOTAL WAR II
Modification for Rome Total War
NTW2 is mainly focused at MP games and historical scripted battles, the first release covers, what we called the 1812 Borodino scenario and brings you the French and Russian forces to play with in MP and a SP historical scenario, a set of historical battles around the battle of Borodino. In this scenario you are guided by Napoleon himself (with text and voice), to achieve some battle goals, the battles are linked, you do not have complete control of all units at first, but as you progress through the battles you control more and more units, and you have to work with the AI to defeat the enemy. All the battles and AI were scripted by us.
We changed almost every aspect within the modding capabilities of the game and 99% of it is Lordz own production, it is a mod about detail and quality and we tried to create a new Napoleonic atmosphere. Newly composed music, much more detailed maps, new vegetation, new skies, new climates, new light settings, new models, textures, animation, climate textures, new sounds, new voice commands(in proper Russian or French), new GUI, new artwork. Basically we stripped RTW and made a different game with the tools we had.
Our next release is all about a 1815 Waterloo scenario, here we will introduce to you the British, Brunswick, Dutch-Belgian and Prussian factions. We release an update on Borodino and will introduce the British for MP play only in about three weeks already, the Dutch-Belgians and Brunswick a month later, the Prussians around end of November 2006 with the rest, so all the new maps, new buildings, new climates, voice commands, music etc...
As Borodino mainly has an Eastern Europe style , now we will add a more Western Europe style and make sure all fits the picture again. Progress on all this is very far already, we release in faces as the MP game was so good received it is more fun when players get regular updates from know on than have to wait any longer.
Try some NTW2 MP battles online, many people play NTW2 since release.
P.S. In the meantime we have released The British, Prussians, The United Netherlands, Brunswick and Austrians, and finished NTW2 as a project December 2006.
