Total War: Rome II Announced By The Creative Assembly

The Creative Assembly has formally announced Total War: Rome II for PC, which promises to feature "the most expansive turn-based campaign and the largest, most cinematic real-time battles yet seen in any game."

Total War: Rome II will be powered by a brand new engine, which can render "tens of thousands of men" simultaneously. As a Roman Emperor, players will have to deal with the cut-throat politics of the Senate and fragile family loyalties on top of "leading the greatest army ever seen into battle."

“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 set for a 2013 launch on PC. RPS and PC Gamer have more details, should you require them.
