Tomorrow at 8am BST (British summertime), Total War : Rome 2 is released for everyone who has pre-ordered and pre-loaded. Me included! Pretty much everything you would expect from the game seems to be here, and improved.

I really like the trailer, it’s certainly got me in the mood! Showing unlucky leaders as they leave this world, it asks, “Will you stand?”. If you pre-ordered you will also have the “Greek Factions” expansion included. Also confirmed is a future free DLC. It’s promising to hear that future content will be available to all for free, I hope more companies take heed and follow this approach.

This version boasts excellent matchmaking and online multiplayer experience. Creative Assembly have always raised the bar when it comes to the Total War series. I’m pre-loaded and awaiting the release tomorrow morning! Enjoy the trailer and if you haven’t seen it already, I’ve included their rather, unique collectors’ edition unboxing video.
