SEGA has released their first gameplay trailer for Total War: ROME REMASTERED, highlighting many of the game’s graphical improvements over the game’s original 2004 version. 

Thanks to Feral Interactive, 2004’s Rome Total War will be recreated with updated visuals, modern features and support for Windows, macOS, and Linux from day-1. 

Total War: Rome Remastered will feature the content of Rome: Total War and the game’s Alexander and Barbarian Invasion DLC packs. The remaster will also come with a copy of ROME: Total War Collection for those who do not already own the game. 

Resolution-wise, the updated game will feature widescreen and ultra-widescreen resolution support, updated battlefields and environments, a high-resolution UI, and a modernised Total War camera system. ROME Total War’s unit has also received updated models, new animations, and improved textures. ROME’s campaign map and buildings have also been remodelled and updated for the modern era, giving the game a new look and a familiar feel. 

Gameplay-wise, this remaster will play a lot like the original. However, the game will launch with sixteen previously locked factions, new campaign map overlays, a modernised UI, a modern Total War camera system, and a new agent called “The Merchant”.
