Evan and T.J. recently sat down with Creative Assembly's Al Bickham for a guided tour through the battlefields of the 4th century B.C. in Total War: Rome II. We explore the campaign map with its new mechanics, and jump into a real-time battle to defend a key road to Rome. All the while, we bombard our gracious host with questions about the new face of Total War.
Creative Assembly's Al Bickham and Joey Williams gather up their elephants in an attempt to show you how to tackle Total War: Rome II's historical Battle of the Nile scenario. Watch on to learn how best to organise your units into a suicidal charge up a heavily defended hill. Or, if you're me, how to then wait patiently and subtly alter plans without resorting to ramping up the unit speed and letting the whole thing descend into slapstick chaos.
There's a lot of stuff happening in this 10+ minute narrated walkthrough of Total War: Rome II's Battle of Teutoburg Forest event. By "stuff" I mean killing, stabbing, shooting, flanking, charging, lancing, burning and warhounding. Those Germanic forces aren't messing around, and here you get to see Creative Assembly attempt to survive the assault.
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 describing as "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.
Creative Assembly are giving us the biggest look at Total War: Rome II yet, thanks to this giant panoramic shot of the Battle of Teutoburg Forest. This is their second panoramic vista for the game, but with their last one a mere 29063 x 3872 depiction of Carthage, they were barely even trying. This time they've gone all out, providing a massive 30000 x 9785 shot of Rome's defeat at the hands of the united Germanic tribes. With 293,550,000 pixels of hot Rome II action at our disposal, there's bound to be some interesting titbits hidden within. Let's fire up the INVESTIGATRON 3000 and go digging for clues!
Friends! Romans! PC gamers! Want a free copy of Total War: Rome II—and a beefy new gaming PC to play it on? We're giving away a Digital Storm Bolt PC and a copy of Creative Assembly's newest strategy game to one lucky reader.
The Creative Assembly has released the Beast of War DLC for Total War: Rome II. It costs $3 and adds seven new units to the game, like Celtic Warhounds and Camel Cataphracts, but some players are angry that the units are not as new as they may appear.
War. War never changes. Unless it's on a ship, then it changes quite a lot, what with all the water and scurvy and stingrays to worry about. In its latest trailer, Total War: Rome II gives us a glimpse of its frankly gorgeous naval combat and, blimey, I'm getting seasick just looking at it. The whole business looks appropriately chaotic and cramped, though not as many people fall in the sea as I would have thought. It's the first thing I would have done if I'd have been there.
Creative Assembly are using the Total War Wiki to roll out info on the factions that will appear in the upcoming Total War: Rome II. See if you can guess who they've unveiled as Rome II's first faction. No hints. Definitely don't go peeking at the Total War: ROME II faction page. Just take a shot in the dark...
At the Rezzed PC games show over the weekend, the Total War: Rome II development team showed off an extensive look at the in-game tactical map, new city management systems, and a spectacular combined land and naval battle.
The doors of Creative Assembly’s Total War development fortress creaked open a little wider today with the release of a new trailer for Rome II’s Battle of the Teutoburg Forest scenario. I saw this mission being played live a few months ago while visiting CA for the lead feature in PC Gamer issue 250. It was the first time I’d seen the game being played properly rather than running as a pre-scripted demo (or while dressed up in black spandex and dancing around like a moron.)
Have you heard this one before? A Roman general and his German ally go for a walk in the woods. Three legions of Roman soldiers end up dead. It's not a very good joke - not if you're Augustus, anyway. They were his legions. He would really, really like them back.
Total War: Rome II footage shows orchestral soundtrack and bashing-things-with-hammers sound effects
A dev diary video released by Creative Assembly shows great behind-the-scenes footage of the sound design in the new Total War strategy game, Rome II. The Total War series has always had an emphasis on bigger worlds and more units on a battlefield at once, but it’s neat to see the lengths they went to get really great sound.
Just when we thought we were finished with Creative Assembly's slow (and often predictable) reveal of Total War: Rome 2's playable factions, they come back for an encore. Ex-Persian state Pontus joins the roster as the ninth potential power - and will be added to the game through a free day-one update, published through Steam when the game releases later this year.
That Caesar, he did get up to some japes. He created political triumvirates, aggravated the stoic Cato, got up to all sorts with Cleopatra, and generally behaved like a proper scamp. On top of that was all the conquering that he did, and it's for this reason that he's the titular star of Total War: Rome 2's first campaign expansion, Caesar in Gaul. The expansion will focus in greater detail on Gaul and south Brittania, with this smaller area balanced by a shorter timeframe. Inspired by Caesar’s war diaries from the era, players will be able to play as the Gallic Arverni, the Germanic Suebi, the Belgic Nervii and Rome.
Close up Carthage! Seal Sparta! Evacuate Egypt! Close the gates of Gaul! Sega have announced the date that Total War: Rome II will be sending its Roman invaders charging out into the world. Creative Assembly's imperial sequel will begin its unstoppable march through Europe, and the rest of the world, from September 3rd.
