    Total Factions Allows for Varied Play in Napoleon Total War

    Napoleon Total Factions  

    Although it is fun to play as the great Napoleon Bonaparte, there is a game mod developed that allows one to Unlock All Factions in Napoleon Total War. Specifically, one can play as Egypt, Italy and Europe. Additionally, one is also able to play the liberated factions by following the below steps.

    First of all, make sure you have “WINRAR" downloaded from this public domain web site: WINRAR and install the executable to extract the forthcoming files.

    Next, download this hefty 80 megabyte file to obtain the Unlock All Factions in Napoleon Total War, executable that allows one to play all the factions (Total Factions).

    Third, download and install the update 2.3 located at this location.

    Although cumbersome on its face, the process involves a file conversion that changes a custom file to a movie type. Please, stay patient and follow this step by step process. The resulting enjoyment from playing as the Italians or Egyptians is well worth a gamer's patience. Additionally, you may want to finish the Napoleon campaign before trying the different factions as you will notice a greater degree of difficulty. Not all countries are blessed with a strategic genius (except for Waterloo) like Napoleon Bonaparte.
