Total War Rome II (10)

It’s apparently Total War: Rome II day here on IncGamers. Not only do we have Peter’s shiny hands-on preview, but we’ve now got a brand-new trailer for you!

This trailer uses Hannibal as a way to illustrate the sort of strategic possibilities you have in the game, indicating all the different strategies he could have employed to attack Rome and their likely effects. Where will he attack? Who will be he his allies? What’s Hannibal going to do?

Check out below, and have a look at our hands-on with the game here. Keep your eyes open, too – we’ve got more Total War: Rome II content coming soon. The game itself is due out on 3 September.
