The next big update for Total War: ARENA looms large, and will soon be upon you!

Update 2.1 for Total War: ARENA will be available on Tuesday 3 October at 11:00 CEST (UTC+2).

Crucial changes are being made to the game based on feedback received from you, our valiant Commanders, and we can’t wait for you to dive in to try them for yourself.

  • The Replay System allows you to replay, reflect, and learn from your previous battles. Analyse the battlefield, study your enemy, and learn from your mistakes to find out how you can crush your rivals when you next lock swords!
  • Player Levels will give you quantifiable proof of progress as you journey through Total War: ARENA, allowing you to earn rewards such as currency, and days of Premium Account.
  • Player Titles will showcase your accolades and achievements, and allow you to add a level of customisation to your profile.
  • Knowledge is power! New tooltips blend historical and tactical information on abilities, descriptions, unit types, and more, allowing you to gain the ultimate edge over your opponents.
  • Unlock Battle Decorations for performing almost mythical feats in the heat of battle!
  • Other changes have been made to balancing, art and graphics, and the user interface, while numerous bugs have also been issued coins and directed to Charon for safe passage into Hades.
