This Gold Edition from publisher Sega bundles together the original Medieval II: Total War and its follow-on, Medieval II: Total War Kingdoms.

Medieval II: Total War is a visually stunning game that spans four and half centuries of the most turbulent era in Western history, from 1080 to 1530, encompassing the golden age of chivalry, the Crusades, the proliferation of gunpowder, rise of professional armies, the Renaissance and the discovery of America. With Medieval II: Total War, The Creative Assembly raises the spectacle of the Total War series to a whole new level by completely upgrading the game’s battlefield rendering system, devising new methods for building and rendering cities and heavily revising the game’s combat animation system. With over 10,000 troops now to command and hundreds of unit types, players can experience massive battles in graphically rich environments enhanced by dynamic weather effects and vastly diverse terrain. Medieval II: Total War provides players the reigns to experience and rewrite one of the most fascinating periods of history to become the greatest power of the Middle Ages.

Medieval II: Total War Kingdoms features four brand new campaigns, including an opportunity to more fully explore The New World that was unlocked toward the end of Medieval II. In the Americas campaign, players can retrace the steps of Hernán Cortés in 1519, as he seeks to explore and conquer The New World. Players can earn the support of Spain and explore the mystery and riches of the New World, or take control of the Aztec or Native American factions and call on the Gods and the bravery of vast armies to see off this new threat.

Three other campaigns offer more detailed 'magnifying glass' campaigns within Great Britain, Northern Europe and the Holy Land, with many more regions than were originally shown in Medieval II. Featuring 13 new playable factions and over 150 new units, Kingdoms allows players to control thousands of men on a single battlefield and lead them into conflict with new hero characters such as Richard The Lionheart and Saladin, each armed with new, powerful battlefield abilities. In addition, players can use moated forts to garrison vast armies or seize control of key strategic points and explore new technology trees, governed by religion and prestige.

Players can experience a bloody clash between Pagans and Christians in the Northern European Teutonic Wars, or take control of one of five factions in the Britannia campaign when England faces war on four fronts as once conquered lands rise up against them. Kingdoms also includes a new expanded Crusades campaign, where players renew their fight for control of the Holy Lands, with new factions, devastating new units (such as the terrifying Greek Flame Thrower) legendary heroes and powerful holy relics.
