Rome: Total War (also RTW) was the third main installment to the Total War franchise, released on Windows and Mac OSX in 2004 and 2010, respectively. The game is set in and around the late Roman Republic and the early Imperial era, with a period-specific factions.

GameplayEdit

As with the other entries into the series, the game is divided into two distinct parts: the campaign map, which is a sort of national overview, where players administer their selected faction, including building projects, recruitment, and directing troop movements. The battle map is where most combat takes place -- multiple players, or players and AI, take control over one of the armies involved in the clash. While in this mode, the campaign as a whole is paused.

CampaignEdit

The campaign for Rome: Total War spans the time period 270 BCE to 14 CE, from the late Republic to the early Empire. There are two campaign lengths -- short and long, the latter of which has more stringent victory conditions than the former.
