Total War: ROME II Ships, Trailer Released and First Update Coming This Week

This latest in the acclaimed line of strategy games charges players with creating the most incredible war machine the ancient world has ever seen
Releasing a new video, SEGA announced that Total War: Rome II, the sequel developed by The Creative Assembly exclusively for PC, is now available to purchase on digital download and from retail stores worldwide. Playing either as Rome, or one of many barbarian, Greco-Roman or eastern empires arrayed against them, players must use all the military, political and mercantile power at their disposal to rule the known world.
Total War: Rome II features a campaign map nearly twice the size of the previous title and 700+ individual unit types.
Update: the first patch for the game will arrive this Friday; it will address known instances of crashes due to hardware conflicts alongside several other performance fixes.
