Stand fast, for the Fury of Arminius is here!
Total War: ARENA Closed Beta has launched today with massive changes

 

The ‘Fury of Arminius’ update, the biggest to date, introduces a new faction, new Commander and new map to the epic, team-based strategy game. 

New Commander Arminius enters with a horde of fierce Barbarian units, bringing stealth, subterfuge and lightning hit-and-run tactics to the battlefield.  See Arminius and the Barbarian units in action in this trailer: 

 

The new map, Rubicon, is the first river crossing map in Total War: ARENA, offering quick access to enemy camps at the threat of being caught out in the open. Caesar’s crossing of the Rubicon River marked a pivotal point in ancient history, and this new map with its open terrain and treacherous crossing marks new tactical opportunities for all factions – Roman, Greek and Barbarian alike.

In addition the update includes rebalancing, improvements and fixes following the wealth of feedback received during the Closed Alpha stage.  For the full update notes visit: https://blog.totalwararena.com/
