    Default Total War Rome: Remastered



    Well lads, it's happening. From what i can see the battles will have the same mechanics, just better textures, updates, etc. Lot's of QoL changes to the general interface though. Half price (15 usd/eur/gbp) if you already own Rome on Steam

    I am hyped, looking forward to all the QoL updates.

    Promising. Let's hope the Ptolemies don't get the Old Kingdom treatment again.

    Very exciting. I doubt mods will be compatible out of the box, but I really want to play RS3 with this updated engine.

    Hyped for it. If it is as mod friendly as the original one it may start total war modding renaissance.

    I wonder if they are going to do this with Med II also. Med II has 3 times the active player base as Rome does so it seems odd that they would remaster Rome instead of Med II first if they want to sell a lot of games.

    Steam stats ranking

    Med II--ranked 167th with a daily high of 3588 players
    Rome---ranked 337th with a daily high of 1302 players

    Maybe Med II represents a bigger challenge to remaster since it was a later and maybe larger game. Just a random speculation on my part.

    This looks awesome!

    - ACTUAL regional recruitment with proper looks, without needing to mod separate unit types for each region!
    - Agent management to reduce the tedium from older games
    - MAP MODES! Officially unlocked factions too
    - And finally, there are no more clone soldiers

    That alone is enough to make me return to this and log in another 500 hours.

    I am hoping for ability to move generals/governors and such via a manager window UI as well (like we can move agents and ancillaries now). Manually moving characters from Italy to Spain and taking 20 years to do so was kinda silly.

    If it has the modding potential of the original (especially campaign map), we might see some amazing things in the future.

    I assume that if this remaster does great, they'll do the same for M2

    hopefully. marketing campaign seems to have taken off nicely. judging by the number of views remastered trailer already beats every other video CA uploaded in the last month, bar WHIII announcement.

    Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. It uses an upgraded version of the old engine which means we can have big campaign map editing mods like old times. I doubt porting mods would be an easy task or if it would be even possible, but I'm excited and hopeful.

    Interesting. Do you have a source for this?

    The possible return of actual full-scale total conversion mods like the good old days of RTW/M2TW from a decade ago, is a very exciting prospect indeed. Big mods were never the same after ETW since Warscape campaign maps can't be modded (at least not easily, and simply not at all after Shogun 2).

    Some Youtubers did say that campaign map is going to be moddable like before, and since there will be Steam workshop for this, I hope the classic modding community gets a revival as well.

    It'll need mods because Bronze age Egyptians, Head hurlers and an unexpanded map. After all it's not the mid 2000's any more...

    It is time for the Roma Surrectum, Europa Barbarorum and Darth Vader's teams to awaken. This is a one in a decade opportunity to make everyone's Dreams come alive by remaking (and possibly even improving ) their Great Mods.With the experience they have, anything is possible.

    SPREAD THE WORD !!!

    Hmm, modifying the physical map is apparently harder due to the fact that the remaster uses 'pre-rendered textures'. So that's going to be something that needs to be figured out for (porting) overhaul mods.

    I never pre purchase anything almost. Last game I did was many years ago. But this one was an instant buy as soon as I saw the trailer and some gameplay specially with the 50% discount for people that already owned Rome on Steam, which I did. I'm anxiously waiting for it, and even better, I'm waiting for all the great mods people will make for it in the upcoming years.

    Rome 1 was what got me into TW, and while I still love the original, it runs really poorly on my system nowadays. So, I am very grateful for this remaster.
