The ever-resourceful users over on the NeoGAF forums have picked up on what appears to be teaser image for a new game in The Creative Assembly's acclaimed Total War series in the latest issue of Australian print mag PC Powerplay (via: CVG).

The telling image features artwork from the 2004 strategy game Rome: Total War with the large Roman numeral II overlayed, suggesting that the next issue of the magazine will feature a full reveal of what we presume will be "Total War: Rome II" (the GAF users and CVG seem to have forgotten that SEGA moved the 'Total War' part to the title's prefix for the launch of Shogun 2).

The magazine supposedly goes on sale July 18th, but it's unlikely they'll be the only ones in the know by then, so stay tuned for more details as we hear about them.

Hells yes, now they just need to also get back whoever did the music for Rome and Medieval 2, who I think I read left after that.

Or just reuse the old music.

If they do this right, goodbye to my life again.

I couldn't find the appeal in these games. I really wanted to like them, because ancient wars are awesome, but it just didn't seem an immersive experience. Maybe if you were able to become a soldier / archer etc and have a more skill-based individual impact rather than RTS commanding kind of gameplay.

Did I miss the point?
Posted 11:41am 26/6/12
Yes you did! It's all about the epic sieges, open field tactics, morale breaking charges, mass mayhem fire trebuchets and ballistas, charging indestructible elephants which you'll most likely lose control of, etc. Not to mention the campaign map money machine, shoring up trade routes etc.

And the awesome awesome music.

Medieval 2 and Rome are easily two of the best games I've ever played.

I don't recall bugs TiT, and I never even patched the game due to... having a demo version.

Thanks to steam sales, I now have all the total wars's.

Rome TW2 ? F*****g yes please.

Hopefully they keep most of the old features (traits gained, speeches, etc) but clean up the UI a ton.

Every time I try to go back and play a campaign, I think of the newer games UI and then die a little inside

I always switched to the hide away UIs, unsure if they had that in Rome, but it helps in M2.

Ah Rome: TW was a brilliant game, looking forward to leading my legions into battle again (if it is more than a rumour).
Posted 02:42pm 26/6/12
Rome: Total War kicked ass. I am looking forward to this.
Posted 04:35pm 26/6/12
I have been waiting for this. Hopefully we don't get price gouged as I'd love to get it as soon as it's out!

Rome: TW was my fav. Man, the epic battles I had in that. I remember once my small army faced an army that was like 5 times the size of mine, odds were not in our favour. Everyone died except my General and his retinue. They managed to counter charge all the other units and win the battle. Epic.
