Napoleon: TW confirms campaign MP

Conquer the world with a friend.

SEGA and Creative Assembly have announced full campaign co-op integration for Napoleon: Total War.

Finally you'll be able to plot a global conquest alongside a friend - or against them. But note that only one other person can play with you for the time being.

Creative Assembly has also developed a new drop-in battle system where real people can take over as commander of the AI force for one battle.

Campaign co-op is being tested in Empire: Total War as we speak. The beta began in December, which we hope means these ground-breaking features (for the series) will be well oiled by Napoleon's launch on 23rd February.

And those aren't the only improvements on offer - head over to our hands-on impressions of Napoleon: Total War from last week to find out more.
