Total War Rome II: selling like hotcakes

1 min read

The Total War series is popular, but Rome goes above and beyond.  In fact, the new Total War: Rome II is the most pre-ordered title in the franchise’s history – people are jumping on it faster than a toga party!

Launching on 3 September on PC (yes, you can get it through steam or from your preferred local retailer), Total War: Rome II is seeing pre-orders six times as much as the previous title in the franchise, Shogun II.  With the collector’s edition limited at 22,000 units, they are also halfway to being sold out!  

If you pre-order, you get the first DLC (Greek States Culture Pack) free on the day of release.  I just want the collector’s edition for the replica, functional onager.  Makes sense why they’re selling like hot cakes (assuming cakes actually did sell quickly when hot).

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

      Surely this is a fail sir?

          • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

            I think you may be right perhaps?

          • Trevor Davies

            Well after posting 20-odd comments in question form I realised it’s not as much fun as I thought it would be, which is annoying seeing as I voted for it lol Maybe you’ll come around to my way of thinking? 😛

          • Rince an repeat

            Maybe I will, or maybe I won’t, question is, am I wearing pants? 0_o

          • Trevor Davies

            I sense a disturbance in the force :/

          • Rince an repeat

            You probably mean a forced disturbance?

          • Trevor Davies

            Has someone forced you to not wear pants? The monster!

    • Ultimo_Cleric_N7

  • PointMan

    What are the chances that Lazygamer will have a competition for this CE?

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    An actual functioning catapult!?!?!? Can I have one please!!!!!????

    • Sargon

      Wouldn’t you rather have a fully functional ballista instead? 🙂

      • Brady miaau

        Ohhhh, yes please

  • Lardus

    Will I be stupid enough to pre-order another Total War after the crap with “changing file structure please re-download 12GB” or “steam ignores DO NOT UPDATE settings” issues I had? Would it be a stretch to say “no f’ing way”!?

  • Weanerdog

    What is that an onager for ants, it needs to be at least 3 times bigger. Oh and by the way if the people at your toga party don’t look like that its because you haven’t yet drunk enough.

    Why even put this up if the collector’s edition will not be available in SA?
