Puns aside, Empire: Total War follows a similar gameplay style to the past four in the series by allowing players to play in a turn based campaign while still enabling them to fight in epic battles in real time. Set somewhere in the 1700 - 1799 period, gamers choose factions such as Great Brittan and Russia to take over North America, Europe and the Indies. This time around players will see the addition of navel battles in real time creating an even more in depth gameplay experience than before. "
