Touch Controls Added to Total War: Rome 2
I’m not sure how effective touch controls would be in one of those massive battles in Total War: Rome 2, but armchair generals can go ahead and start swiping and pinching — if they’ve got the tech.
Creative Assembly announced today that it has added a touch-enabled control system to its strategy game, and it’s available now as a part of a free update.
No, you won’t find Rome 2 in the Apple App Store or on your Android-powered tablet. You’ll still need something with a bit more oomph to play Total War, but Creative Assembly did partner with Intel to get Rome 2 up and running on the 2-in-1 Ultrabook line of laptops/tablets.
Given that the likes of Unreal Engine 4 are now targeting high-end gaming on tablets, it likely won’t be long before we’ll all be able to play Total War on our iPads.
