Total War: Rome II Announced

The Creative Assembly officially announces Total War: Rome II, following the hint last week that such a revelation was coming. The strategy sequel is expected next year, and in a coordinated unveiling, there are various previews to accompany the news. There are first looks on IGN (where they also have a live trailer), Computer and Video Games, Rock, Paper, Shotgun, and Shacknews. There are also video interviews on PC Gamer. Here are a pair of screenshots, and here's the announcement:

SEGA(R) of America, Inc. and SEGA(R) Europe, Ltd. today announced that The Creative Assembly, creator of the multi award-winning Total War(TM) series of PC strategy games, is currently developing Total War: Rome II(TM) for PC.

Encompassing one of the best-known periods in world history, Total War: Rome II will combine the most expansive turn-based campaign and 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 players will face at the head of the world's first superpower.

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

How far will they 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, and to view the Rome II announcement trailer, visit .

Only two measly screenshots? Man.

Oh well. At the very least, this should get those retards on twcenter to SHUT UP about Victorian/WWI: Total War. It will NEVER happen. Who seriously would get amped about a game like that? Bring on Rome, please.

Awesome! Unless the installation is found to cause syphilis or maybe bring about a demonic invasion this is an insta-buy.

EDIT: Just looked at the screenshots. Oh. My. GOD!!! Scratch my qualifiers - I'll live with the syphilis and demonic hordes!!
