total-warAlthough highly anticipated and overall a high quality title, Empire Total War was not the most bug-free strategy game ever released. It had its fair share of problems, but at least some of them (if not most) will get fixed by this new patch released on Steam to fix crashes and problems you might have encountered while playing Empire: Total War. The update will be automatically applied when you restart your Steam Client and among the changes, the most important are:

– Multiplayer – can now find friends across regions
– Load time detection on trade routes to fix pathfinding crash in campaign
– Some General Sound balancing improvements
– Fixed UI Chat hang when spectator leaves unranked match with 3+ players
– Varies Campaign Crash Fixes
– Some Save/Load fixes
– Boarding fix where cannon crew board order was not being deleted properly causing crash
– Fix to kill characters instantly to stop crashes in campaign on agent/general deaths
