Total War: Rome 2 includes one very special character – a soldier modelled on a 24 year-old fan who recently passed away due to liver cancer. Prior to his passing, The Creative Assembly allowed the passionate strategy fan to tour the studio, play an alpha build, and pose for his digital recreation. Eurogamer has a touching article on how The Creative Assembly rallied round the young man and was quite cut by his death. Total War: Rome 2 arrives on PC sometime this year.
