Yes, I've heard. Kills men by the hundreds. And if HE were here, he'd consume the English with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his ASS!

I *am* William Wallace! And I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny. You've come to fight as free men... and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight?

Noble Fighter:
Fight? Against that? No! We will run. And we will live.

William Wallence:
Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!

Total war and Game of thrones would be an amazing mix, especially with the amount of mythical creatures increasing :)

That's why I love this franchise! Can't wait! This TBA seems to be forever though D:

Just an idle thought from a fanboy: I would like to see how they would do with fantasy settings.  I mean, there are many games that focus on series like Lord of the Rings and trying to make it a big strategy game.  I don't think I've ever played one that was really decent.  The Total War franchise would probably be the only developers who could pull it off with how impressive they make their own games look.  Unless they manage to incorporate more modern eras into their games, they will soon run out of historical periods they can use.  I think that this would be an interesting way for them to keep things fresh while sticking with their own formula.

Also, little suggestion, put some option to enable the player to play the game in accordance with the historically correct scenarios. Or, a box saying: "By this time and the next 5 years the Romans would conquer Pontius, Armenia and the Seleucids.

If the developers do this right, the game might very well be the best game ever made.

OUCH! I feel sorry for that last roman.....It does look beyond beutifull, If ingame is anything like that then I will be amazed!

I can see the game itself being great, but the Roman setting kind of ruins it a little. If it was set somewhere more interesting this game would be, by far, my most anticipates game of the year.

This game can't get here soon enough!  Although even waiting for it is fun.

I don't think there's a video game series I want to love again more than this one. It hasn't been the same for me since Medieval 2, really since R:TW for that matter, but I feel if any game can do it, it's this one.


Amaze me, Creative Assembly.

@evangeli0n1 Why would you want the only true historic game to go fantasy. It would ruin the whole franchise. I do agree MAYBE it would be fun as dlc. But this should always be a historical game as it always was supposed to be. They already had all historical periods and now they are doing them again.and they would probably do it all over again cause by the time they are back where they started it will be more then 10 years that past and they will have better graphics etc. This will never get boring

Macedonia? Seems the closest we'll get. Althougjh they were hellenic.

@CastorT

Mainly just the overall focus on Rome and the Roman Empire. I have zero interest in it.

@scroft16

Yeah saw that. Ptols or Sels is most probably the final one.

@Scorpion1813

So far it's

Carthage, Macedonia, Iceni, Suebi, Arverni besides Rome.

There are two more at least unknown to us and they are bound to have some eastern factions which could be either Parthia, Seleucids, and Ptolemies. Maybe even Pontus..

@CastorT @Scorpion1813 its not just about the roman empire its really about the time its set in the early AD its called Rome because they dominated Europe then lol. but all playable factions will have different buildings , troops , famous figures and text. so if you don't like Rome kill them off with one of the other 7 playable factions

@Scorpion1813

Then I must say I find your first comment strange (regarding Rome).

You could have just said you'd prefer a whole different era and setting...

I thought you meant why the focus is on Rome even though when it's in ancient times.

Scorpion1813

@CastorT

For the focus to be around a more interesting Civilization. I'd be happier with Asian (China, Japan, Mongolia, etc), of something around the Crusades.

I know not everyone is interested in that, and some people are more interested in Rome. But I'm not.

Okay...what would you be interested in instead when you said:

"If it was set somewhere more interesting this game would be, by far, my most anticipates game of the year."

Please elaborate.

@Scorpion1813 @CastorT 

Well, little is known of the game but if I read the previous comment by the devs correctly, the other factions will receive equal in attention. At least the playable ones.


We can't compare the sequel to RTW where it was certain without doubt focus lied on the Romans.
