The 2004 strategy game Rome: Total War is coming to iPad, Creative Assembly has announced.

The iPad version promises to offer the full Rome: Total War experience “without compromise.” This includes:

“Players can take part in a full scale campaign, playing as any one of 11 factions; enormous 3D battles are fought with thousands of on-screen units; and, on the turn-based strategy map, players will manage the economic, civil and religious arms of their empire.”

Total War brand director Rob Batholomew commented:

ROME: Total War is still one of our most critically acclaimed Total War titles to date and a firm fan favourite. We are thrilled to work closely with Feral on the iPad release and excited that players will get to experience ROME: Total War on a whole new platform for the first time.”

A release date and price for the iPad version have yet to be confirmed, but SEGA says that it’s due to sometime this fall.

The game will work with first generation iPad Air and iPad mini 2 models and up, with the Barbarian Invasion and Alexander expansion packs also set to be released separately at a later date.

Bad at video games, decent at writing.
