Totally new shots of Total War

With Medieval II: Total War marching ever closer to its November 24 release date, we've got another contingent of screens for your historical battle-viewing pleasure.

Every Total War game manages to look more gobsmackingly impressive than the last, and Medieval II is no exception - its battles in the mud of Europe or the dust of the Holy Land are up there with the franchise's very best.

Covering a period that includes the Crusades and the discovery of the Americas, history will be providing all the spectacle the game's scenario modes can take - and we thought it wouldn't get any bigger than Rome.
