Total War: Arena is a free to play spin-off for the Total War strategy series, offering players the chance to pitch history’s greatest commanders and their armies against each other in massive team-based battles, mixing elements of RTS and MOBA gameplay.

Total War: Arena represents a new direction for the Total War franchise, and is in development by a dedicated team at Creative Assembly, focused on a purely multiplayer experience.

Each player controls three units of warriors, led by an iconic commander from history, each with their own battle style.  Players level up commanders and units to open up more specialist skills, weaponry, armor and abilities.  Decisive strategies, combat tactics and teamwork decide who is victorious.


Total War: Arena marches into Open Beta today.

The Open Beta introduces the faction of Carthage to fight alongside existing factions of Greeks, Romans, and Barbarians. Players can don the mantle of ‘Father of Strategy’ Hannibal Barca together with his brother Hasdrubal, and take command of brand-new units, including mighty war elephants.

Players recruit armies from a wide and diverse roster and enter the battlefield. They must issue their orders and change tactics on the fly in intense, heated encounters where teamwork and quick reactions can turn the tide of battle and secure victory.

“We are proud and excited to share the results of our work with players all around the globe,” said Evgeniy Shukin, Total War: ARENA Publishing Director at Wargaming Alliance. “Together with beta testers, we’ve crafted a game that easily lets newcomers jump in and start battling, while fulfilling the promise to seasoned veteran strategy players who have been at war for years.”

“A passion for history and multiplayer gaming, combined with years of fine-tuning and hard work from both our developers and our valued players, has gone into bringing this Open Beta to the public,” said Gabor Beressy, Total War: ARENA Game Director at Creative Assembly. “We can’t wait for new players to try out this unique Total War multiplayer experience, while we work on more factions and features to add to the Total War: ARENA experience.”

All progress and battlefield experience earned by players in Open Beta will be carried over when the game officially launches.
