Press release:



Total War: ROME II™ announced


Today, we’re delighted to announce one of the most hotly-anticipated titles in our history - Total War: Rome II™ - sequel to the multi-million selling, 92% Metacritic-rated classic Rome: Total War, encompassing one of the best-known periods in world history.

Total War: Rome II™ will sink players into the dangerous political machinations of Rome’s senate, while asking them to struggle with family dilemmas and question the loyalty of ‘friends’ and allies. Leading the greatest army ever seen into battle will be just one challenge you will face at the head of the world’s first superpower.

Will you help forge an empire? Restore the Republic? Or grasp the reins of power for yourself, and assume the hated title of tyrant? Who will you conquer? Who will you betray? Who will you sacrifice?

“How far will you go for Rome?”

“Our games have always encompassed a grand vision”, said Mike Simpson, Creative Director. “But we’re now pushing that vision at both ends of the spectrum. From the immense reach of the sandbox campaign right down to the human-level drama of a single warrior on the battlefield, we’re aiming for an unprecedented level of detail and scale”.

“In our 25th year of games development, it feels fitting to return to our most critically acclaimed era”, continued Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director. “There’s been a multi-generational leap in technology since the original game and we are ready to set another benchmark in gaming.”

Total War: Rome II™ is due for release in 2013. For more information visit the new-look site at www.totalwar.com

The graphics can be like the original for me as long as they don't bugger up the gameplay.

Heard an interview suggesting they might be trying to simplify the whole formula. Ot Oh.

Hmm, the actors are not CGI, are they? Would be astonishing if that would be possible, couldn´t tell the difference to real life...

    GriftGFX The mouse input is unacceptably atrocious, but what can you do. That's one of the more common PC development issues that no one seems to care about. Raw should be standard. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX The characters are even worse than FC3, but I don't really care much about that. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Far Cry 4 does at time feel like another iteration of Ubisoft's cookie-cutter open world design.. but it's more engaging than Assassin's Creed. (1 Hour ago)
