Creative Assembly announces a new class of Total War game
Creative Assembly have shared initial plans for a new class of historical Total War game that will launch under the badge of “A Total War Saga”.
This new spin-off series will arrive with gamers before the next major historical release in the franchise, promising a busy time for historical strategy fans.
In a blog post on www.totalwar.com , Jack Lusted, Game Director of the first forthcoming Total War Saga title, explains what fans can expect from this new class of Total War game. Building on previous titles, Total War Sagas will centre on pivotal flashpoints in those eras, such as civil wars, renowned conquests and political upheavals.
Similar in scope and focus to Fall of The Samurai, the best-selling standalone follow-up to SHOGUN II, the first Total War Saga will continue on from ROME II and ATTILA, presenting a thrilling new challenge in a focussed geographical area.

ROME: Total War – Alexander coming to iPad this summer
Feral Interactive announced today that ROME: Total War – Alexander, the strategy game based on the exploits of antiquity’s greatest commander, will be coming to iPad later this summer. Developed by Creative Assembly for Windows PC and ported to iOS by Feral Interactive, Alexander is the second standalone expansion pack for the critically-acclaimed iPad game ROME: Total War.
A century before the campaigns of ROME: Total War, Alexander ascends the Macedonian throne and embarks upon an audacious campaign to conquer the all-powerful Persian Empire. Players will lead their armies to unify the Greek city states, and then march across Central Asia, routing the Persian Empire to establish their legend as Alexander the Great, the most remarkable general of classical civilisation.
As with ROME: Total War and Barbarian Invasion, the iPad version of Alexander delivers the entire original desktop game optimised for tablets. Players will enjoy intuitive touch controls, visuals enhanced to take advantage of Retina screens, mid-battle autosaves, and full Russian localisation.
“We have been delighted by the reception of ROME: Total War and Barbarian Invasion for iPad, and are confident that Alexander, which offers players the chance to recreate history’s greatest military adventure, will be just as well-received,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive.
ROME: Total War – Alexander for iPad will be available exclusively via the App Store for $4.99/£4.99/€5.49. A copy of ROME: Total War is NOT required to play Alexander, and there are no in-app purchases.
ROME: Total War for iPad is also available now at the App Store for $9.99/£9.99/€10.99, and Barbarian Invasion is available for $4.99/£4.99/€5.49.
System requirements will be announced closer to release.
