Creative Assembly & SEGA Announce Total War: Rome Remastered

SEGA and Creative Assembly announced this week they have an old favorite coming back with Total War: Rome Remastered. Originally released back in 2004, this is one of the all-time great staples of the Total War series back when Activision was publishing it. Seventeen years later and this version is the original game with a bunch of upgrades, which includes a 4K resolution and graphics enhancement that will make the game pop. We have all the new additions to the game from the developers listed below, along with the trailer for you to enjoy as this will launch on PC on April 29th, 2021.

  • Improved Visuals: Total War: Rome Remastered ushers the classic strategy title into the modern gaming era with full 4K visuals, native support for ultra-high-definition resolution and overhauled environment, battlefield, and character models.
  • New Gameplay Content: Wage war across new fronts with 16 previously unplayable factions to play on top of the original 22, and send the new Merchant agents on missions to establish lucrative trade networks across the map, buy out rival Merchants, and assert your empire's economic power.

Existing mechanics have also been improved, including an overhauled diplomacy system, wider camera zoom levels throughout the game, and camera rotation on the campaign map.
