Total War: Arena Hits Closed Beta, Adds New Faction, Commander, Maps
Creative Assembly's free-to-play multiplayer Total War: Arena has cleared a major milestone on its way to launch, heading into closed beta after a successful alpha. Well, that's what they tell us, at least... I mean, who ever said they had a crappy alpha?
Whatever the case, Arena storms into closed beta with a new Barbarian faction, led by the cunning Arminius, perpetrator of the massacre of three Roman legions in the Battle of Teutoberg Forest in 9 AD. The new map is the Rubicon, the first river-crossing map in the game, which served as the northern boundary of Italy proper, and which Julius Caesar famously crossed in 49 BC to assert his dominance over Rome.
