The Creative Assembly announced Total War: Rome II as the next edition of the Total War series on Monday as “the biggest Total War game yet” and is set for release on PC in 2013.

The RTS will feature “the most expansive turn-based campaign and the largest, most cinematic real-time battles yet seen in any game.”

Rome II will feature a new graphics engine capable of rendering “tens of thousands of men” in “bone-splintering detail”. New unit cameras are to be included. Scalability is being promised, allowing you to play the game “no matter what your spec.”

“Our games have always encompassed a grand vision,” said creative boss Mike Simpson.

“But we’re now pushing that vision at both ends of the spectrum. From the immense reach of the sandbox campaign right down to the human-level drama of a single warrior on the battlefield, we’re aiming for an unprecedented level of detail and scale”.

“In our 25th year of games development, it feels fitting to return to our most critically acclaimed era”, continued Rob Bartholomew, brand director. “There’s been a multi-generational leap in technology since the original game and we are ready to set another benchmark in gaming.”
