Total War: Rome 2 campaign map and factions shown off

Rome 2's campaign map is shown off, along with faction and house traits, and the cities on the map.

Total War: Rome 2 is the 8th Total War game.

The series has been mostly published by Sega, with Creative Assembly as the developer.

What's in the video?

Dominique Starr, the Campaign Designer, shows off some of the specialities the major factions families have, and the over all faction traits.

The whole campaign map is shown off, with the overview map, and the Carthaginian provinces are shown off also.

My Thoughts

I think that the campaign map looks massive, and beautifully designed. The overview map has a really nice style to it, and looks like a drawn map, but you can also tell it's from a game. The character models look amazing --for an RTS.

I really like how the cities look on the map, the capital looks massive, as it is the capital after all.

Rome 2 will be out on 3rd September on PC. Pre-ordering will grant you free access to the The Greek States Culture Pack. Presumably (as this was the case with earlier Total War games) it will be using Steamworks.
