A strategy game like Total War: Rome II is all about choices, and this latest trailer shows some of the ways you can invade Rome.

While Roman senators dither and argue about which way Hannibal might go, gamers can access their own strategic invasion options. Apparently in real life, Hannibal did take the hard road from the north over the alps and succeeded in his early battles against the Roman republic.

For another look at the game, check out this trailer on its factions, and you can also start planning your own assault with an online interactive map.

Total War: Rome II comes out for PC on September 3.
