Hannibal Finds a Way or Makes One in the Latest Total War: Rome II Trailer

on August 1, 2013 11:21 AM

Legend says that when Hannibal’s generals told him that it was impossible to cross the Alps, he said “Aut inveniam viam aut faciam, that translates to “”I shall either find a way or make one.”

Today The Creative Assembly released a spectacular new trailer of Total War: Rome II showing exactly that: Hannibal crossing the Alps with his army and elephants striking confusion in the heart of the Roman senate (for some reason The Creative Assembly loves portraying Romans in confusion, overwhelmed by their enemies. I always wondered why…) with a mix of in-engine cutscenes, campaign map gameplay and battle footage.

It definitely looks good, and you you can check it out below, while I wait for the release of the game (on September the 3rd) to show the folks at The Creative Assembly that Rome’s a tad more steady than that.
