Total War: Arena resurfaces, enters closed alpha
Sign-ups open. New screenshots released.
The Total War sort-of MOBA spin-off has re-emerged today, with Sega and developer Creative Assembly announcing Total War: Arena has entered closed alpha status.
You can sign-up for the closed alpha at the Total War: Arena website.
Total War: Arena, announced back in March 2013, is a free-to-play PC strategy game in which two teams of 10 players battle against each other.
Each player controls three units of warriors led by an iconic commander from history. Alexander the Great, Leonidas, Germanicus and Caesar are all in the game - and you level them up as you play.
As a free-to-play game expect in-game purchases that let you customise your units and speed progression, according to the game's fact sheet.
"We have spent time since the announcement evolving both the gameplay and the supporting technology, to ensure we deliver smooth online service for multiplayer gamers", said project lead Gabor Beressy.
"We are excited to say that the game is now in Closed Alpha, and we welcome feedback from players to inform the next stages of development".
New screenshots are below.
