The Total War series has become one of the greatest PC strategy games of our time and The Creative Assembly along with SEGA are set to expand with Total War: Rome II.
Total War: Rome II is the sequel to the 92% Metacritic-rated classic, encompassing one of the most well-know periods in history where turn-based campaigns combine again for the largest, most cinematic real-time battles yet seen in any game.
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.
“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 to launch 2013. Visit www.totalwar.com/ for more information.
