Conquer, rule and manipulate the Roman Empire with the ultimate goal of being declared as the "Imperator" of Rome. Set in a time when the mighty Roman Empire emerged to conquer the known world against powerful enemies, when gladiators fought to a bloody death in the Coliseum; when Spartacus defied the might of the empire; when Hannibal led his invincible army and his war elephants across the Alps to strike fear into the very heart of Rome itself; and when Julius Caesar finally smashed the Barbarian Gauls. This was a time of brutal confrontation between civilisation and barbarism, and of civil war as the ancient world's only superpower turned on itself.

Rome: Total Realism 8: Beta 3.0 Release!


The RTR team are very proud to announce the full release of Beta 3.0, with an absolute legion of new features to play with. Big graphics overhauls, new buildings, new units, and much more add a whole new level of depth to the RTR 8 3.0 Beta.

Nabats

The Nabatean position at the start of the campaign - just one of the unique new factions in RTR

Graphics overhauls are always some of the most fun aspects to showcase in a new release, and certainly no exception has been made here. 3.0 includes great new attention to detail, down to the level of improved more realistic dust effects, and also new unit skins and cards, especially for the Sakae of central Asia from where expert Kazakh archaeologist Mike "Xeofox" Antonov has been advising the team. Overhauled banners and symbols are also featured, as well as several new units including the noble Italian Equites and the elite phalangites of the Basilikon Agema.

Sakae

Men and women ride side by side in a Saka army, riding under the symbol of a golden deer

The game's core features haven't escaped notice either, though, never fear. An irrigation system, the ability for Parthia to transition from nomadic to settled states as a faction, a new overhauled port system, a more diverse mining experience, and unit status bars in battle are all great new additions that give you an engaging, but also more realistic, look at how to manage your state in the classical world. Total war meets total attention to realism - this beta is taking the RTW engine another step into exciting new territory.

TooltipPlus

New easy-to-read unit status bars easily show you fatigue, combat power, and morale at a glance

In this release we also have the return of historical battles, allowing you to take control of a range of critical armies and re-live - or overturn - critical points from throughout classical history. In particular, Beta 3 a reworked version of the bloody clash at Raphia between Ptolemy IV Philopator and the Seleucid Antiochus III for control of the vital battleground region of Syria. One of the largest battles of the ancient world, tens of thousands of phalanx pikemen met in a protracted struggle with mighty African and Asian war elephants squaring off against one another on the flanks. Now you can take control and change history!

I have played >1000 hrs on this SPQR TW 9.0 and I love this mod! I cheated plenty of money and put billions of money on all factions :). I played as greeks and i made some modification adding Spartans recruitement on all cities. Troops are massive 20-40 full stacks waiting to devour your troops. In battlefield it can handle 10-12 full stacks of armies in very huge battles. 1 stack is around 4200 troops with a massive 30k-35k troops in battlfield!! You have to play very hard and you will see the AI are so very good.

My specs 4790k @ 4.0 Ghz, HD 7950, 16GB ram, 1080p. Settings most high and troops was set to Huge with 240 troops in one group. I only play single player and is fun. Graphics and maps are also good.

Spartans!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rome total war 1 forever, The best strategy game ever.

The game that made the TW saga a classic. For someone that played a lot Shogun TW like me, playing RTW for the first time was absolutely stunning. The vanilla game is superbly done. The battles, the strategy map, visual & sound effects, physics.... you name it. What made this game even greater were it's excellent mods. It's greatest flaw, however, was shared by it's successor, M2TW and it's expansion Kingdoms: The lack of naval battles on the battlemap. Which came only when Empires TW came out…
