Total War: ROME REMASTERED Next Month

A tweet from Total War announces that Total War: ROME REMASTERED is in development at Feral Interactive for release on Steam on April 29th for Windows, macOS, and Linux. This promises improved visuals, modern features and enhanced game mechanics for the strategy game which was originally released in 2013. Here's an Announce Trailer with a first look, and here's an overview:
Total War: ROME REMASTERED lets you relive the legacy that defined the award-winning strategy game series. Remastered to 4K with multiple improvements to visuals as well as refinements to gameplay, it’s time to revisit a true classic. Not everyone gets a second chance to conquer the Roman Empire.

ROME REMASTERED includes the Alexander and Barbarian Invasion DLCs, as well as a copy of the original ROME: Total War Collection*, if you don’t already own it.

Rome: Total War is the best game in the series. I tried Total War Rome 2 and it was okay, but felt off. I played Total War Troy extensively and while it's good, it feels like Total War that's been xbox'd up for the modern generation. It could just me being a curmudgeon, though, as I prefer the older style of gameplay that RTW, Empire, and Medieval 2 had

I disagree with this, even looking at the 2 games before they switched engines for TW: Empire (which had its own issues at launch), Medieval 2 was just a better game. Rome had a ton of issues with the AI, like in battle the enemy general would charge my army and get killed before the rest of his army would even engage me, or on campaign map the enemy factions would send tiny armies at me constantly that I would annoyingly had to clean up instead of building up an army that could actually be a threat. Medieval 2 had a lot of Rome's issues fixed, plus it looked way better with less clone armies.
Lastly, while I wish the newer games be more moddable (I do miss custom campaign maps), when looking at them without mods I would say the current games are best in the series. Warhammer has faction variety that is unmatched by anything done previously, while the Three Kingdoms has excellent diplomatic options. But if you want more historical, then TW: Atilla is very good too. I did not really play Troy yet, what was xbox'd about it?

From the screenshots tt looks like they are not reusing the modern Total War engine, and the upscaled textures\graphics don't look that great. Shame really.

Game plague or 2020 plague?
Lol I definitely would have played the hell out of it during the pandemic if I hadn't already play it 100 times. The Bubonic plague- now that's when we had REAL plagues...

I don't get it. TW Rome first came out in 2004. Which 2013 version is the newsbit referring to?

Rome 2 it appears.

The report is wonky because yea. You caught that. 2013 was Rome 2 release and 2004 was Rome 1. Anyway, if it's Rome 1... great.

It's Rome 1. Looking at the screenshots on the Steam page you can tell by the environment maps.

Rome 1. If only for the epic phalanx bridge defences. Where 3 units could hold and rout an entire army.

Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.

The reddit thread has comments from CA that indicate it's the original, but will have the current camera/control scheme.

edit: The Steam listing confirms it's the original

Yes. Medieval 2 was great. Rome was also pretty good. Probably my two favs that ever came from these guys.

Rome Total War II is the one everyone hated on. I remember getting it for $9 early on because of the poor reviews.

The Total War: Rome II didn't do much for me. Always felt Rome 1 was the better game gameplay wise.
