There is a new Germanic trailer for Rome 2 Total War, here it is. Impressive detail on the soldiers, I’m old enough to remember when this sort of quality was top drawer for first person games….and now we have it with hundreds of characters on-screen all at once.

There will be “true line of sight” and Ambush scenarios in the new game, I always found it very hard to pull off a successful Ambush in previous Total War games, seemed like you would set up the perfect hiding place on the campaign, and then nobody would ever pass you by. Hopefully it’s a bit more active rather than passive this time.
