Look: First Proper Total War: Rome 2 Trailer


Roooooooooome! Two. The ancient Empire is set to rise again next year. And again. And again, as millions of us click our way to dominance of the old world theater of empire-building. I'm planning on building an Empire of druids, too. (As it should have been.) Regarding the trailer, SEGA explain: "The year is 146BC, brilliant tactician Scipio Aemilianus is dispatched by Rome to break the three-year-long siege of Carthage, an unforgivable blight on the glory of the growing Empire. Ruthless determination and an almost suicidal amphibious assault is required, but the young consul is uncomfortably aware that the price of victory may be much higher than the senate realises." The trailer apparently shows off the kind of detail you can expect from the game's battles.


Poor old Carthage.
