Edinburgh Interactive today announced that The Creative Assembly will be showing off the latest game in the Total War series at Edinburgh Interactive 2010 in August.

The free-to-attend game screening takes place at The Filmhouse where a Total War one-hour session will run on the evening of Thursday 26th August.

The session will also play host to an exclusive demo of the recently announced Shogun 2: Total War, the sixth instalment of franchise. The public screening will then conclude with a Q&A session allowing members of the audience to grill The Creative Assembly on all things Total War.

Mike Simpson, Creative Director, The Creative Assembly, said: "We're looking forward to revealing the history and evolution of the series during its first decade to Total War fans at Edinburgh Interactive, as well as detailing how recent technological developments have allowed us to portray one of history's most exciting civil wars in Shogun 2: Total War."
