In 2013 we are going back! We are going to return to Rome in Rome II: Total War. SEGA announced the game on the 2nd of July this year. Both SEGA and The Creative Assembly promised "the most detailed turn-based strategy campaign ever made". From screenshots we see big armies and cities. Also ships are included in these screenshots.
On July 4th an announcement video has been released on Youtube. With it seems like a collapsing Roman empire.
Below the official video and a link to the official Rome II: Total War website.
