History Channel uses Total War
Various reports online inform us that the History Channel has just penned a new deal with Total War developer The Creative Assembly, which will see the RTS game Rome: Total War used for graphical historical re-enactments. The new TV show, Decisive Battles, will utilise the Assembly's acclaimed title to recreate battles from the Roman era and beyond, with the Battle of Cannae already mooted.
"These graphics are a great way to bring the ancient battles to life," the show's executive producer Margaret Kim informed Wired magazine; the vast armies the game can bring to life apparently being a key factor in the deal. The BBC series Time Commanders also used Total War recently to create authentic tactical battles of yore. More soon.
