Creative Assembly has announced Napoleon: Total War – The Peninsular Campaign, a new add-on campaign which will be released this summer on Steam.Fans of the series can look forward to a brand new campaign map featuring 32 controllable regions divided amongst 4 different factions and Spain has been added as a playable faction in this campaign. The Peninsular Campaign will also feature three new agents; the priest for Spain and Portugal, the provocateur for Britain and France, and one unique agent for the Spanish faction – the Guerrillero.The campaign can also be played from three different perspectives, the French fighting to keep the resistence at bay, the British liberating regions back to the Spanish in return for Guerilla aid and the Spanish fighting the French with the help of Guerilla aid.The update also states there will be a “host of new multiplayer features”. It is 1811 and the war in the Spanish Peninsula has been raging for over two years with mixed fortunes and heavy casualties for both sides. Napoleon’s Armée d’Espagne, led by Marshal Masséna, has invaded Portugal once again, but thus far, the network of entrenchments has proved impossible for the French to successfully assail. Although forced back to the edges of their Peninsula by France and the traitors who helped them, Spain is not yet out of the fight. The Supreme Central Junta and its successor, the Supreme Regency, authorised the forming of local bands to fight guerrilla – the “little war” – against the invaders.Details can also be found on the new.
