Rome: Total war, one of the best real-time strategy games ever released, gets a remaster. Plus, you don’t have to wait long to play it. Total War: Roma Remastered will be released on Steam on April 29. Feral Interactive, a studio best known for porting games like XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Deus Ex: Human Revolution to macOS, is on development tasks. But do not worry, they have experience with both the game and the series. They ported earlier Rome: Total war for iOS and Android.
As for what to expect from the remaster, it will feature updated models, textures and visual effects, a redesigned user interface and campaign map, as well as support for Steam Workshop and ultrawide and 4K displays. Remaster will also include both Alexandar and Barbarian Invasion expansions. It costs $ 30, but if you already own the original on Steam, you can buy the remaster at a 50 percent discount until May 31st.
Of all the war games, Feral Interactive could have remastered the original Rome is an interesting choice. Yes, that’s the game where Creative Assembly took the series to new heights. However, the sequel is in many ways the better game. That was not always true, especially when Creative Assembly was released Rome II in complete mess as it did. But with almost constant support from the studio, it has since become one of the best entries in its long-running series. Still, Total War fans will not complain, especially since Workshop support will make it easier to play the game’s excellent mods.
