Hello people I know and people I do not know, people with whom I have interacted at some point and people who happen to be here for a random reason involving boredom.  I have gathered you here so I can say one thing to your face before (some of…? Anyone hopefully?) you figure it...

Road To Release - Total War: Rome II

Posted on Friday, August 23 @ 04:24:54 Eastern by GR_Staff

Total War: Rome II - Find a Way

Rome II's epic feel and grand scope get the spotlight in this blend of cinematics and gameplay. The diplomats scream and shout, but only the commander can make decisions necessary to save Rome. Action, not words, will maintain Roman dominance in the region, but only if players choose the titular faction.

Total War: Rome II - Campaign Let's Play

This 13-minute gameplay demo walks the viewer through the baby steps every commander will take in-game. Developers Patricia and Dominique talk through all the different faction options, methods of diplomacy, and the large campaign map you'll interact with when you're not smashing columns of soldiers into each other. Every choice made will have an effect over the course of the campaign, so from the very beginning players want to consider their options carefully.

Total War: Rome II - Battle of Teutoburg Forest Let's Play

In this intensive Let's Play the developers offer a good overview of the general gameplay they'll find in any battle. The Warscape Engine allows the player to zoom in to ground level and see the action from the soldier's perspective. The forces in this mission have to defend against barbarian surprise attacks, cavalry charges, and more. The unit camera and tactical map are also shown off, giving commanders every view of the action they could possibly want.

Total War: Rome II - The Battle of the Nile Let's Play

Here, The Creative Assembly show off one of the game's historical battles where Roman troops must capture Egyptian camps to win. The Battle of the Nile shows off the combined Naval and Land combat in Rome II, forcing the player to juggle resources for each objective. Of course, as Bickham and Williams say in the video, sometimes unfortunate sacrifices have to be made.

Total War: Rome II - Multiplayer Let's Play

Let Total War devs Trish and Elliott walk through the changes the studio has made to improve multiplayer in the series. Quick Match, Custom Match, and more are available for players to pit their armies against each other in all-out war. The Warscape Engine won't be able to render my embarrassment when more skilled armchair commanders decimate my forces online. But at least the scope in game is incredible so I'll still be able to appreciate the carnage.
