i love the total war series, played them since Shogun, also one of the few series of games i have dared to play on line as i was quite awesome at it back in the day, was even a guild leader for the Rabid dogs of hell Medieval Total war clan. The someone released SW galaxies and i was tempted by the dark side.
Anyway really Like Rome TW so this may tempt me to buy a new pc to play it as i doubt what i have will run it......though the wife has a new sparkley laptop hmmmmm will have to check its stats

HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON

Great find! I loved TW: Rome and now this will bring it up to standards with the newer titles both graphically and mechanically.

I never played the first Rome because I was horribly spoiled by Medieval and Medieval II, but this one I am defiantly picking up... along with a shiny new graphics card.

Hopefully they can do proper battles now. Campaign in s2 was epic but battles were borked. Still...

Yay. #wetspants

A new strategy game would be fantastic, and to play as the great Romans would be awesome. Will definitely be getting this.

I can't wait until it is released I was a big fan of the original but I do hope that they won't make the roman factions as OP as in the original RTW.

Begone wretched samurai, my legions return unto me.

Rome was the first of the 'next gen' total war games so it's nice they're returning to it. Hopefully it combines the best of what each games given us so far. Shogun 2 had good battles but was lacking in the campaign aspect but this will have a much larger map to war across. Now that naval combat's been developed we can have trimerimes ramming each other!

Awesome news, can't wait for this. Am playing on Medieval 2 at the moment, largely because it's awesome, but also because my laptop can't support either Empire or Napoleon, and I don't own any newer ones. Although I have played with Rome though, and that was as awesome as this.

A Warhammer Fantasy one would be epic, though. /thoughts.
