Total War: Rome II announced!

The next in the Total War series is announced
Wow! Talk about amazeballs news to find on a Tuesday (of all days!)! Sega have only gone and are happy to announced that The Creative Assembly is currently developing Total War: Rome II for PC. At risk of looking like a fanboy, woot!

Returning to one of the best-known periods in world history, Sega claims that Total War: Rome II will combine the most expansive turn-based campaign and the largest, most cinematic real-time battles yet seen in any game. Which just sounds right.

“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 due for release in 2013 (guesses on a postcard). For more information you can visit www.totalwar.com and check out the trailer below.
