Feral Interactive says Medieval II: Total War Collection (http://tinyurl.com/z6halef) will be released on Steam for both Mac and Linux on Jan. 14. Developed by Creative Assembly, it was published by SEGA for Windows in 2006.
Here’s how Medieval II: Total War is described: “The Medieval II: Total War Collection combines thrilling real-time battles and sophisticated turn-based strategy in a vast campaign that spans five centuries and encompasses the Crusades, the spread of plague and the proliferation of gunpowder. As a warrior king, players will lead one of 17 factions to supremacy in the medieval world with an artful mix of diplomacy, commerce and war.
“On the campaign map, players will build their empire’s infrastructure, cities and trade routes, then master the art of diplomacy to disarm enemies, empower allies and gain the favour of the Pope. On the battlefield, they will conduct siege warfare, command thundering cavalry charges and lead their armies into epic clashes that will bring entire kingdoms to their knees.”
Medieval II: Total War Collection retails for US $24.99 on Steam, the Feral Store and other third party stores. Medieval II: Total War and Medieval II: Total War Kingdoms are also available separately via Steam and retail for $19.99 and $11.99, respectively.
