Creative Assembly's real-time strategy game, Total War: Rome 2, will be coming to Valve's Steam Machine (SteamOS) with full Steam Controller support.

"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," the studio announced yesterday.

"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 2 that could be a more compelling experience than playing with keyboard and mouse. "

Rome 2 will be launching in Linux in early next year, with full Steam Controller and Big Picture support coming as soon as Valve can deliver a dev kit to the studio.

Eligibility to partake in the Steam Machine beta ended late October. Valve will now be sending out prototypes of the high-end machine to 300 beta testers later this year.
