Rome: Total War coming to iPad

Feral Interactive on Friday posted a teaser trailer for an iPad version of Rome: Total War. Considered one of the best strategy games of all time, Total War was originally released in 2004 by Activision, and ported to OS X by Feral Interactive in 2010. The 37-second announcement trailer doesn't reveal much, except that the iOS version will be the full PC version originally created by Creative Assembly. Don't get confused by all the company names, Total War was developed by Creative and released by Activision in 2004, then the rights were picked up by Sega and the game was eventually developed for OS X by Feral Interactive.

In Rome: Total War players can control one of the three great Roman houses during the rule of the Roman Republic. The game features real time battles, turn based campaigns and the ability to control up to 10,000 soldiers on-screen at once. Players must balance economic, civil, religious and military power while trying to win over the people and capture 50 provinces before taking over Rome itself.

The Mac version was met with positive reviews from both critics and players, alike, and the PC version has earned high scores on Metacritic and other review aggregating websites.

Pricing and release date are unknown at this time, but the Mac version of Total War is $24.99. Games tend to cost a little less on the Apple App Store, but you should expect Rome: Total War to be priced as a premium title. Fereal Interactive's Twitter page lists the game as "coming this autumn."
