E3 08: Sega Blowout: Empire: Total War

As I’ve mentioned before I’m a big fan of The Creative Assembly’s Total War series; heck, I still fire up Rome: Total War on a pretty regular basis. This is why I was pretty excited to see some more of the latest in the series, Empire: Total War.

There might not be nearly as many screens here as there were in some of Sega’s other releases, but everything that’s here is looking pretty good. The shots of navel combat especially caught my attention. It looks like ship-to-ship combat is going to be a lot more involved then it was in past titles, which is one area I’m glad to see them addressing.

Are these shots getting any fellow strategy junkies excited for the next Total War installment?
