Watch Total War: Rome II’s Phalanxes Using Pointy Sticks on Each Other and Lovely Animations

on August 16, 2013 1:29 PM

Today The Creative Assembly released another episode of its videocast Rally Point showcasing some really interesting elements of the upcoming Total War: Rome II.

We get to see pike phalanxes in combat against infantry, against cavalry and against other phalanxes, and we also get a glimpse on the animation pipelines that give the game a much more cinematic look than Shogun II.

You can check it out below, and make sure not to miss the Super NES cameo. It’s obviously the star of the video.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
