Total War: Rome 2 gives you the power to foster the Roman Republic or build towards the mighty Roman Empire. Oh, what do you care for history? It lets you watch badass dudes in skirts smack each other with swords.
That’s all I learned from these gamescom 2012 screens, anyway. Well, that and that The Creative Assembly really hasn’t lost its graphical flair. The follow up to 2004’s Total War: Rome is due exclusively on PC towards the end of 2013.
