It’s all been a little historical on RPS of late, what with bringing you not only Adam’s ginormahuge and historically important hands-on feature for Creative Assembly’s Rome II, but also the latest trailer from the depths of… wherever makes Rome II trailers.
Lo, it introduces the legendary Hannibal Barca by way of debate in a Roman council on his next move in the on-going war. Take a look beneath, like an archaeologist of fun times.
Heh, elephants, good joke that man.
Loving the cinematic introduction for one of history’s most recognisable figures, though. Of course, what they’re attempting to show off is the myriad ways in which the various new systems allow Rome 2 (and, by extension, you) to more accurately reenact history than ever before. Or, as is more likely, craft a superior alternate. The question remains, however: would you rather fight one elephant sized Hannibal or five Hannibal sized elephants?
