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!

No clue dude, last time I checked there was a mention of a more vanilla type of campaign, so maybe that's the thing?

If using Steam, extract to Rome Total War Alexander folder. If not using steam, extract to Rome Total War folder. The line should look like this: Rome Total War Alexander/RTR or Rome Total War/RTR. Do not put it in Rome Total War/alexander.
