A brand new battlefield has been added to Total War: ARENA, Gergovia is the largest and most detailed map to date and joins Thermopylae, Marathon, Salernum, Alps, Rubicon and Germania in the map roster for the Total War: ARENA Closed Beta.
By fighting through the twisting streets of the town, Gergovia is rife with tight corners and hiding spots that allow for devastating encounters with often little room to escape. Getting cornered can lead to a swift demise. With the Roman siege garrison on one side, and the Gallic reinforcement camp on the other; win control of the town and it’s a clear downhill push towards the enemy encampment.
