Total War: Rome II coming in 2013

Total War: Rome 2

It took quite a few years, but strategy game developer Creative Assembly has finally decided to create a successor to 2004’s Rome: Total War.

Total War: Rome II will once again put players in control of the famed dynasty’s history, albeit with plenty of leeway to create their own epic battles and stories of expansion.

Al Bickham, studio communications manager at Creative Assembly, showed off a short demo recently, detailing the siege of Carthage. Although the game is in the very early stages of development, there was an emphasis on the smooth transitions between land and sea battles.

Not much information was revealed by Bickham, though he did mention how the upcoming strategy title will emphasize “the value of one man” on the battlefield.

Details may be scarce, but the fact that a sequel to Rome: Total War exists seems exciting enough. Hopefully Creative Assembly will reveal more information in the coming months.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
