Napoleon: Total War is getting a new expansion pack based around the Iberian Peninsula campaign.
This campaign was predominantly between Napoleon of France, the British Empire, Spain and Portugal. Napoleon had managed to take a large chunk of Europe for France. He wanted to close Europe off to the British who were one of the biggest threats to French territory and trade. Unfortunately for Napoleon, Portugal who were allied with the British were still holding out against French attacks for the time being.
You will start the campaign as British take a small foot hold in Southern Europe. You can either play as the British attempting to expand your hold in Europe, France trying to defend their large landmass and taking portugal. Or Spain fighting the first ever ‘guerrilla warfare’ against French troops.
The game comes out late 2010 and is exclusive to Steam.

It is 1811 and the war in the Spanish Peninsula has been raging for over two years with mixed fortunes and heavy casualties for both sides. Napoleon’s Armée d’Espagne, led by Marshal Masséna, has invaded Portugal once again, but thus far, the network of entrenchments has proved impossible for the French to successfully assail. Although forced back to the edges of their Peninsula by France and the traitors who helped them, Spain is not yet out of the fight. The Supreme Central Junta and its successor, the Supreme Regency, authorised the forming of local bands to fight guerrilla – the “little war” – against the invaders.
