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.
