HISTORY’S GREATEST EMPIRE – ROME: TOTAL WAR™ NOW ON IPAD
Feral Interactive announced today that the critically acclaimed, classic strategy game ROME: Total War is now available for iPad via the App Store. Developed by Creative Assembly and published by SEGA on Windows PC, and published by Feral Interactive on Mac, the game has been a critical and commercial favorite since its initial release on desktop in 2004.
A game of epic real-time warfare, ROME: Total War offers players a seamless mix of strategy and tactics to fight spectacular battles, while using diplomacy, subterfuge and assassination to pave the road to ultimate victory. Encompassing three centuries of conflict from the Punic Wars to the death of Augustus, the game captures the excitement and challenge of conquering and ruling the legendary Roman Empire.
ROME: Total War is one of the first AAA desktop strategy games to come to iPad and has been heavily optimised for the device, with reworked visuals and a host of features designed specifically for mobile gaming. The result is the most sophisticated strategy game available on tablet. A game of epic scale and great replayability, ROME: Total War for iPad allows the player to direct thousands of troops in real-time battles and build an empire using turn-based strategy, all through controls honed for the iPad’s touch-screen.
“Realizing ROME: Total War for iPad has been a huge design and programming challenge,” said David Stephen, Managing Director at Feral Interactive. “Our aim has been to bring this classic to a new and very different platform without compromising its enormous content, superb gameplay or strategic depth. Working closely with Creative Assembly, I believe we have done that and am confident that Total War veterans and novices alike will enjoy the result.”
ROME: Total War for iPad will retail on the App Store for a one-time purchase of $9.99/£7.99/€9.99. There are no in-app purchases.
Minimum system requirements call for an iPad Air or later, iPad mini 2 or later, or an iPad Pro. The game requires 4 GB of free space and iOS 9.3.5 or later.
