2004 strategy game Rome: Total War is heading to iPad, Creative Assembly has announced.
The iPad version promises to offer the full Rome: Total War experience "without compromise", including a "full scale campaign", "enormous 3D battles" featuring "thousands of on-screen units", and a touch-screen interface to "accurately replicate the desktop game's mouse and keyboard controls".
The port is being handled by UK team Feral Interactive.
"ROME: Total War is still one of our most critically acclaimed Total War titles to date and a firm fan favourite," said Total War brand director Rob Bartholomew. "We are thrilled to work closely with Feral on the iPad release and excited that players will get to experience ROME: Total War on a whole new platform for the first time."
A release date and price for the iPad version have yet to be confirmed, but SEGA says that it's due to release "soon". UPDATE: SEGA tells me it's due to release in autumn.
The game will be compatible with first generation iPad Air and iPad mini 2 models or better, with the Barbarian Invasion and Alexander expansion packs also set to be released separately at a later date.
