Total War: Rome 2 debut trailer cuts in

Having announced the long-awaited sequel Total War: Rome II yesterday, publisher Sega today shared the first trailer for The Creative Assembly's Roman strategy-o-rama. The live-action affair shows the sort of back-stabbing and throat-slitting political manoeuvres we should expect when we return to the Imperium Romanum on PC in 2013.

Of course, as snazzy as live-action trailers are, they tell us very little about the actual game. How lucky, then, that we've seen the game in action and you can read all about it in our preview.
