One of Creative Assembly's most important games, Rome: Total War is headed to the iPad this fall. This port will only be playable on first generation iPad Air and iPad mini 2 models or better.

Originally released in 2004, Rome: Total War puts players in charge of the early Roman Empire and tasks them with making strategic decisions for the future of their people. Feral Interactive will be bringing the game's full experience to iPad, including the campaign's 11 factions as well as new touch controls. Get a brief tease of the iPad version below.

The Alexander and Barbarian Invasion expansions will be available separately in the future. For more on the Total War series, check out our review of the sequel Total War: Rome II.


Our Take
Rome: Total War is one of the best strategy games I've ever played, so if the price is reasonable I am down to revisit it on iPad. If you've never played, this version might be a good introduction to the series.
