Total War: Rome II gameplay shows AI skirmish

The Creative Assembly has shown off a fair bit of Total War: Rome 2's campaign already, but what will you play when that's all done and dusted? Its AI skirmish mode is the focus of a new-ish nine-minute gameplay walkthrough, showing Macedonian forces totally warring against an AI opponent set to Very Hard difficulty.

The video sees studio communications manager Al Bickham defending against a Roman assault, trying to use some woods for cover and, er, ultimately learning some important lessons.

Total War: Rome 2 comes to PC on September 3. Here's the AI skirmish trailer, but do check out this recent one from the campaign too if you totally adore war.
