Navel combat in a Total War game is something fans have been wanting forever now. With Total War: Rome II, Creative Assembly decided to give their fan base exactly what they’ve been wanting. Not only will there be boats on boats, there will be multiple types of ships depending upon your faction. This means barbarian ships will be different than the Mediterranean ship types – each with different strengths and weaknesses.
Don’t you go thinking navel combat will just involve a bunch of ships shooting each other with arrows; there will be full on ship ramming and boarding. Sure setting boats on fire is fun, but there is just something about splitting a smaller ship in half with a ram or having your barbarian horde jump ship and slaughter Roman dogs.
I’m excited as hell for Rome II, check out the video below and know that it can be yours next month.
