Feral Interactive today announced that the acclaimed historical strategy game ROME: Total War will be released on iPhone on August 23rd. Originally developed by Creative Assembly for Windows PC and brought to iOS by Feral Interactive, the game was previously released on iPad only.
ROME: Total War seamlessly blends conquest and politics on a massive scale as it challenges players to build and rule the ancient world's greatest empire over three hundred years, from the late Roman Republic to the early Roman Empire. Players will deploy strategy and tactics in spectacular real-time battles, and use diplomacy, subterfuge and assassination to smooth the path to ultimate victory in huge turn-based campaigns.
Just as for the iPad, ROME: Total War on iPhone will be the full experience, with a suite of features tailored specifically for phone, from a redesigned user interface to enhanced touch controls. It will use the latest version of Apple's Metal API, which offers improved performance, enhanced graphics, and reduced battery usage.
A new "Built for iPhone" trailer is viewable now on Feral's YouTube channel, showing the redesigned UI as well as the iPhone release's new features, including unit battle status and enhanced zoom. The game will also be streamed on Feral's Twitch channel on Thursday 16th August at 6PM BST / 10AM PDT.
ROME: Total War for iPhone will be available from the App Store for $9.99/Â£9.99/â,¬10.99. It will be a universal app, meaning that players who have previously purchased the game on iPad will be able to install it on their iPhone at no additional cost, and transfer their save file.
