With Total War: Rome Remastered, Sega and Creative Assembly have announced a refurbished version of their 17-year-old strategy classic. The publication is due in April.
For Total War: Rome Remastered, the developers are promising 4K optimizations, native UHD resolution and support for widescreen monitors. Buildings have also been redesigned and new environmental effects added, such as heat shimmer and clouds of dust. Creative Assembly has also opted for the campaign map, on which more details can now be seen thanks to the higher resolution.
Players also expect adjustments to the gameplay. So you should now be able to better control, zoom and rotate the camera. In the battles, the new tactical map provides information on unit status and area markings. Those familiar with the original can also look forward to heat maps and new symbol overlays for game mechanics such as diplomacy and security.
Cross-platform PVP multiplayer mode and original as an add-on
For the first time in the history of the Total War franchise, players can take advantage of a cross-platform PVP multiplayer mode on Windows, Mac OS and Linux. There are now 38 factions: 22 known and 16 originally unplayable. In addition, players can send dealer agents on missions. They are supposed to set up lucrative trade networks on the entire map, “buy out” rival traders and strengthen the economic power of the player realm.
