How Far Will You Go For Rome?
Apparently the ginger slut in the video went “all the way”…which just proves yet again that they have no soul. While the overall production value of the ‘live action trailer’ is quite high, it has absolutely no bearing on the final product whatsoever.
Sega & The Creative Assembly have just announced the continuation of the award winning Total War series, with the newest installment Total War Rome II. The game will “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.”
Rome: Total War was originally released on September 22nd 2004 by Activision. The game’s main campaign is set during the rule of the late Roman Republic and early Roman Empire (270 BC – AD 14), with the player assuming control of one of three Roman families; other factions are playable outside the main campaign.
Gameplay consists of real-time tactical battles framed within a turn-based strategic campaign, taking place across Europe, North Africa and the Near East. On the large strategic scale, players spend each turn micro-managing diplomacy, developing infrastructure, moving armies, and managing the population’s growth and orderliness through taxes and gladiatorial games, among other tasks. On the smaller scale, real-time battles against enemy armies take place within or between cities, with the player commanding forces which can contain thousands of individual soldiers.

The sequel will supposedly have a brand new graphics engine allowing the player to “see exotic ancient cities and colossal armies rendered in incredible detail, while jaw-dropping cinematic battles unfold.” The game is slated for 2013. Stay tuned for more news.
