The Creative Assembly announced that it is developing Total War: Arena. This game will be the first free-to-play title from the developer, mixing RTS and MOBA gameplay elements in online multiplayer match ups.

The theme of the game is that history’s greatest commanders and their armies will be pitted against each other in massive team-based battles. This implies that the game will not be tied down to a particular region or period of history like previous Total War games have been.
