New Total War: Rome II Dev Diary and Vidcast Explain the Siege of Carthage, Tease Barbarians

Total War: Rome II may very well be my most anticipated game for 2013 (even if it doesn’t even come close to comparing to something else The Creative Assembly will be working on), and the previously published video on the siege of Carthage really made my mouth water.

Today The Creative Assembly released a new video dev diary in which some of the developers behind the game explain some of the ins and outs of that impressive video, and some of the evolution that what we saw will undergo from here to the launch of the game. At the end of the video we also get a very brief sneak peek at some barbarian renders.

The developer also published a vidcast with Lead Unit Designer Jack Lusted (that many veterans of the series will recognize as a former member of the modding community), that goes in quite some depth about unit variety and battle behavior. Novices that never played a Total War game probably won’t understand a word of what we says, but it’s a true treat for vets like me. You can enjoy both videos below.
