The third game in the Total War franchise will be getting the modern treatment with the release of Total War: Rome Remastered for PC.
TOTAL WAR: ROME REMASTERED GETS NEW NAME, NEW FEATURES
Total War: Rome Remastered, announced by Creative Assembly just this Thursday, will be released on April 29, 2021, on PC. It’s the remaster of Rome: Total War, using the new naming convention since Total War: Shogun II. This game has been one of the most successful entries in the entire series. It’s great to know that we’ll be able to play the game again with new features and overhauled graphics.
Creative Assembly’s Total War: Rome Remastered reveal trailer shows the developers’ cheeky side. Holed up inside their fortifications, a centurion and a Roman senator talk about the arrival of someone. The centurion, having faced the unseen enemy, asks the Roman senator who this mystery person is, and how one man can make a difference in a losing siege. The senator addresses the man, called the Son of Rome, saying that “not all of us gets a second chance.” It’s you, the player. You have returned. And yes, Creative Assembly, not everyone gets a second chance. Where’s our Shogun Remastered? Sadly, Creative Assembly says they are currently not planning any more remasters at the moment.
Total War: Rome Remastered will be having modern features that were not present in earlier Total War games. Most of the improvements come from the map controls during battles. In terms of expanding the campaign, you can now choose any of the 38 factions, almost double the original 22 playable factions. Finally, a new agent called the merchant will allow players to establish trade routes within the empire.
Players can now pre-order the game on Steam for $30. Players who own the original Rome on Steam can purchase the game for 50% off until May 31, 2021.
