It is 3 days now before Rome Total War 2 will be released. So we are bringing you the very latest news from the developers. Total War and the Creative Assembly have been busy supplying Rome 2 fans with news ahead of the game’s release. Two major releases have been made recently. Keep reading to find out more about the latest instalment in the Total War series: Rome Total War 2.
Total War Rome 2 Faction Technology Tree
This is a big release from the Total War team. You can now check out the civil and military technology trees for Rome Total War 2. The below video goes through it pretty thoroughly. But how much do you want to know? It might be enough to just get a feel for how it will all work, without checking out every bit of technology available in-game. Factions other than Rome will have a similar layout for technology. But it appears that the things which you can research will vary.
Total War Rome 2 Pre-Load
Rome 2 is preloaded. This is both a blessing and a curse… Allow me to explain. You now have the option to download Total War Rome 2 ahead of its release date. It can be downloaded from the Steam Store. This means that you can play Rome 2 as soon as the game is released.
So what is wrong with that? It is great that you will not have to wait for the game to download on its release day. But there is a big drawback. Once the game is downloaded it is in your Steam library. You will not be able to play it yet but it will be there. Hours will be spent staring into your Steam library, now filled with epic gaming potential. But you will be powerless and at the mercy of the Creative Assembly. Until they decide that the time is ripe to release Rome 2, your games library will be simultaneously filled but empty.
