Can’t get enough of History and Total War? We have just the thing:
Rally Podcast is a new project in which we’ll look to chat about various topics related to Total War, History and the Total War Community. Whether you want to enjoy it on the go or with a cup of tea while playing the next campaign is up to you.
You can find our iTunes playlist here and which is also available on most Podcast Apps for mobile devices.
Episode 1 - Europe 395 AD
In the first episode Pete of the Writing Team, Josh of the new Content Team and Matty of the Community Team talk about the Huns, Pete’s love for the Sassanid Empire and the historical background at the start of the Grand Campaign in Total War: ATTILA.
Disclaimer: When talking about the Sassanids Pete is referring to Yazdegerd I, when really he's talking about Ardashir I, the founder of the Sassanid Empire.
Episode 2 - 15 Years of Total War
In the newest episode of Rally Podcast resident Code Master Guy Davidson, Artifex Maximus Kevin McDowell and Scott Pitkethly, Grand General of the Battle Team, share their thoughts on their favourite eras, the pitfalls of the Latin language, some of the toughest challenges history threw at them, and which era they would personally like to visit next. Whether you're stuck in traffic or kicking back in your armchair, you should give these three wise men a listen.
Episode 3 - The Tales of the Apocalypse
In this, the third episode of our brand new podcast, we feature the Tales of the Apocalypse, a series of short stories illustrating life in the fifth century. We’re joined by Joshua Baldwin from the New Content Team and Studio Communications Manager Al Bickham (who also penned the stories) to listen to dramatic readings of all 7 stories (read by Community Coordinator Henry Hankin) and discuss prominent motifs as well as their historical contexts and gameplay implications.
You can read the short stories here.
