Total War: Rome II video shows off the battle of Teutoburg, flaming balls


Beware: Creative Assembly have balls of fire. In this video walkthrough of Total War: Rome II’s battle of Teutoburg. The video is all pre-alpha footage, so you can excuse the wince inducing v-sync issues. It’s looks absolutely gorgeous, so gorgeous in fact I’m questioning whether my PC will be up for the job. Creative Assembly also offer a few new features, including a new tactical aerial view and an improved cinematic mode.

Here’s the bloody battle:

The aeriel view is amazing, something I’ve applauded so much in games such as Supreme Commander. I also love the cinematic mode, allowing you to really soak in battles at the perspective of an everyday soldier.
