OF MEN AND MER

A snap­shot of the rich, var­ied fac­tions in The Elder Scrolls: To­tal War

PC GAMER (UK) - - EXTRA LIFE -

CY­RODIIL EM­PIRE

Pick­ing the Em­pire is like choos­ing Bri­tain in Em­pire or Rome in, well, Rome You start off well, but man­ag­ing that large ex­panse from the off could prove tricky.

THE KING­DOM OF SKYRIM

The game takes place over two cen­turies years be­fore the events of the fourth Elder Scrolls game, so don’t ex­pect dragons or Thal­mor.

ALDMERI DO­MIN­ION

They’re not quite the of­fi­cial ‘bad guys’ of the ElderScrolls uni­verse yet, but you can play them that way if that’s how you choose to live your life.

GREAT HOUSE DAGOTH

This is a cool touch: you can play as House Dagoth, the lost, cor­rupted Dark Elf house, and strike out from deep in­side the Red Moun­tain.

GREAT HOUSE REDORAN

To ex­pe­ri­ence that ‘ev­ery­thing you do be­ing ma­nip­u­lated by House Hlaalu’ feel, play as House Redoran. At least they’re great at fight­ing.

CLANS OF THE BLACK MARSH

Black Marsh le­git­i­mately feels like a dif­fer­ent con­ti­nent in this mod – it’s a lot like vis­it­ing the un­charted New World in MedievalII.
