Total War: Rome 2 is has broken records by being the most pre-ordered title in the series’ history, SEGA has announced. There’s also an unboxing video – of sorts – for the Collector’s Edition below as well.

According to the publisher, pre-sales are six times that of Total War: Shogun 2 in 2011.

“Our expectations for Total War: Rome 2 are extremely high,” said SEGA product manager Sam Sadeghi. “It is already our fastest pre-ordered Total War game of all time.”

To support the game’s launch, SEGA will be rolling out a large marketing campaign which will see the strategy title from The Creative Assembly featured in ads on Discover History and Quest.

Total War: Rome 2 hits PC on September 3.

Thanks, MCV.

    Not really a shock. Rome was probably(almost) every ones favourite title and it certainly was a game changer when it was originally released.

    Shogun 2 was just a shallow waste of development time and money.

    I actually liked Shogun, was my favorite, though Rome was good as well.

    What GrimRita said.

    I know it wasn’t perfect, but the original Rome is one of the best strategy games ever.

    Kinda makes me worry for this one, but I’ll be there :P

    What happened to this site? Half the comments are awful trolls like Archaven. Anyways, I agree with the others here.. Shogun 2 was just ‘meh’ at best. Not to mention the fact that everyone had identical units.. No difference between factions aside from like 1 special unit each, lol.

    With that said.. I cannot wait for Rome 2. It shall be epic conquering carthage, greece, germany, egypt and etc as Rome :D
