War horns blow for Medieval 2 trailer

Latest instalment in the massive RTS series impresses in gameplay trailer

We somewhat fancy ourselves as budding generals. We did a brilliant job of commanding our troops around the pub this weekend, issuing drink orders left and right whilst making sure any bar talent is properly scouted.

In Medieval 2 the troops on the frontline are more worried about getting impaled on a spear than being sober when time's called. Nevertheless, we reckon we'd easily outflank those pesky Egyptians before catapulting them to hell with our artillery.

Medieval 2: Total War is due in shops at the end of the year. Watch our trailer.
