Empire Total War Patch Next Week

The Total War Blog promises a new patch next week to update Empire: Total War to version 1.3, saying the patch is expected on Monday, June 22. The post outlines what's planned for the patch, which includes multi-threading for multi-core CPUs, optimizations for single-core machines, multiplayer tweaks, bug fixes, and 14 free units to replace generic units, "giving each faction a unique identity on the battlefield." They also offer descriptions of these new units.

That's a pretty biased assessment, FWIW. Empire enjoys a solid 88+% on Gamerankings (higher than Medieval 2, slightly lower than Rome. The gameplay is great, and if you're not predisposed to disliking the time period the setting is as well.

Most of the bad reactions to the game have been about bugs and gameplay issues that have been (or are being, with this patch) largely ironed out.

You could try the demo, but as I recall it's just a battle demo and doesn't include any campaign. I'd say if you're a fan of the Total War series, buying Empire--especially now that it has had a few significant patches--is a no-brainer.
