Total War Rome II (1)

Creative Assembly’s Rob Bartholomew has announced that Total War: Rome 2 will be coming to Steam OS.

In a post on the Steam Universe announcement page he stated:

At Creative Assembly we want our customers to be able to play on as many platforms and in as many locations as possible, so today we are announcing future support for both SteamOS and the Steam Controller.

We’ve always wanted the Total War franchise to be enjoyed by living room gamers, but the limitations of traditional hardware made our style of game play impossible. Last month, when Valve invited us to test out the new Steam Controller and unveiled their plans for SteamOS – we were impressed. We believe it will provide us with the control fidelity and platform we need to make a living room experience for ROME II that could be a more compelling experience than playing with keyboard and mouse.

ROME II will be launching on Linux early next year, with full Steam Controller and Big Picture support to be added as soon as Valve gets us a controller dev kit. Pick up a copy of the game this weekend while it’s 25% off and you’ll be able to play the Linux version as soon as it launches!”

In related news, SEGA popped over an email to say that there’s 25% off Total War: Rome 2 this weekend to coincide with this news.

Now that CA are getting the game sorted out with their patching frenzy to fix the shoddy release version, it may be worth a look at the new discounted price this weekend.
