SEGA has announced that Total War: Rome 2 is the fastest pre-ordered Total War game to date, with over six times the number of pre-orders its first official week compared to Shogun 2. The Collector’s Edition has also pre-ordered well, with over half the available copies already sold out in the US. The firm also said Total War sales hit 2 million last year “without a major release,” to support the series. Those who pre-order the strategy title get the first DLC, The Greek States Culture Pack, free on the day of release. Rome 2 is out September 3.

    Not hard to outshine Shogun 2, which, at launch was a total pile of shit. Over 50% of the game broken, had DX11 support MISSING(despite all those sexy bullshots).

    For the first time in my life, I will NOT be pre-ordering a Total War game because I don’t trust Sega to release a polished product.
