Creative Assembly have revealed an
enormous battle scene
from their upcoming historical strategy epic Total War: Rome II (or possibly Rome: Total War II, or even Total Rome: War II - it's hard to keep track). Well whatever it's called, the game will boast what the developers are
"the biggest city – indeed the biggest battle – we've ever created in a Total War game". History fans, they're talking about the
Siege of Carthage
That image up there is just a slice of the
, which is a lovely thing to behold, zoom in and explore. You can see cannons mid-fling, and soldiers mid-fall, as the city of Carthage is sacked and obliterated before your eyes. Frustratingly, we won't get to enact this battle ourselves until 2013, so in the meantime I'm going to photoshop in a mouse cursor and pretend I'm playing it
. Don't judge me. War: Total Rome: No Place Like Rome II is due out in October next year.
