Strategy gamers on the fence about buying the PC game Medieval II: Total War when it comes out in mid-November may have just been pushed over the edge. Sega has announced that the first run of the real-time strategy game will be a limited-edition version of the game with bonus material. Those who pick up the game near its November 14 release will be rewarded with a "detailed map of the extensive game world" and the soundtrack from composer Jeff Van Dyke. The added bonuses won't cost extra--the limited edition will retail for $49.99 while supplies last. Medieval II: Total War is being developed by The Creative Assembly and is rated T for Teen.

Want the latest news about Medieval II: Total War?
I pre-orderded the game from EB (and am about to install it), but was only told of the offer when I asked about the "Limited Edition" case they had on display. Better than "Mark of Chaos"...you have to pay an extra $40 for the "limited Edition".
Hey, if we pre-order it from say, EB Games, will we get the Limited Edition? Or is this only for instore buying? Because the descriptions at EB, Gamestop, all those places say nothing about it. I really want this Limited Edition, but don't want to spend $50 when I don't know which one I'm buying.
Its going to be a very badass game so, I'll pay the bucks for it. It will be worth it and they deserve it!
sounds like they ***** up with the game, and want ppl to buy it fast be4 reviews spread out about this game...
i'm feeling like i'm being forced to buy a game at launch to get the whole purchase, but it's a great sales tactic, to make sure they have a blockbuster sale.
gargarensi you could download the demo off the Internet and see if you computer is up to snuff with this game. Well, the graphics is quite scaleable, so see if it can be configured to suit your setup...
Look forward to play it but I'm pretty worried that my PC wont have hte power to fire it up what with the new finisher animation. I have a Dell Extreme Graphics 2. I have Rome total War on my PC and works pretty well. I'd be pretty bummed if it doesn't work. Call of duty 2 did that to me.
I played demo and it is beautiful. When I download the Rome Total WAr demo over a year ago it was horriblely done bu tthis one was awesome. Great unit detail, to the point that I cant believe its the same engine!! Great job. Cant wait
Yea~~~ this thing requires SSE2, all you socket A AMD Athlon XP users are outta luck.....Intel pentium 4 or above is fine though....
Totally Awesome............and it's the same price as the standard version! I just hope it's on DVD instead of like (5-6) CD's that's just lame! Can't wait until the 14th next month and I'm........waiting.
Nice. I remember RTW came with the map and game guide but it costed more. At least I'll get the map and soundtrack as a nice bonus.
